2nd Annual Nimitz Old Texas round-up Barbeque on Saturday, April 9th

The Admiral Nimitz Foundation will hold the 2nd Annual Nimitz Old Texas Round-Up Barbecue on Saturday, April 9, at 6 p.m. at the National Museum of the Pacific War. Dinner will be served from 6 – 7:30 p.m.  Join us for food, drinks, and music while raising money for the Admiral Nimitz Foundation which supports, operates, and manages the National Museum of the Pacific War.  There will also be a silent auction and the raffle drawing for a $5,000 travel voucher.

The barbecue-themed fundraiser is inspired by Fredericksburg native Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz. During his command in the Pacific, Nimitz would hold barbecues for Texans (and those who wished they were Texans) serving in his command. It was a chance for the men and women to enjoy a few hours of food and recreation without thinking about the war.

Tickets for the barbecue are $25 for adults 21 and older, $15 for those ages 12-20, and children 11 and younger are free.  Each dinner ticket includes two drink tickets. Tickets will be available at the door or you can purchase yours today in the Museum stores or online at Nimitz-bookstore.com. Raffle tickets are available at the National Museum of the Pacific War stores for $5 each or 5/$20.

The Almost Patsy Cline Band, a Hill Country staple that performs country hits, will be providing music for the gathering thanks to a donation from the Pedernales Creative Arts Alliance and Oktoberfest.
