Offering ways to support the mission through your social responsibility programs
Special events account for over 27% of our annual budget. It is a sincere pleasure to offer fun and engaging events that not only support our mission but also fulfills your philanthropic desires.
COVID-19 statement: Our special events are large, in-person events and due to the ongoing pandemic, our 2020 events have been canceled; however, we are planning for them to resume in 2021. During this time, your support is needed to offset the loss of revenue from the canceled events. Please read on to learn more about our 2020 Star Light, Star Bright campaign.
Roadhouse is an annual concert, dinner and auction event held in the spring. Our 2021 event will bring headliner Joe Nichols to the Fort Worth Zoo! Past entertainers have been Jerry Jeff Walker, Clint Black, Wade Bowen, Josh Weathers and Pat Green. In 2019, we moved the event venue to the Fort Worth Zoo and it was a resounding success. Sponsors $5,000 and up are included in the VIP cocktail time which includes feeding the giraffes.

Wild Game Dinner
Wild Game Dinner is an annual dinner and auction event held the second Friday of September at The Fort Worth Club. For more than 25 years, the Wild Game Dinner has played host to hundreds of guests who have dined on exquisite meals prepared by Chef Tim Prefontaine and his staff. The cocktail hour prior to dinner offers sundry bucket raffle items ranging from hunting items to luxury purses, while the silent auction presents trips, fur coats, jewelry and more. During dinner, there is a live auction with a wide range of items such as Argentina hunting or fishing trips and unique items like private concerts with dinner. Games are also played throughout the evening to have even more fun.
