February 29th Jaycee’s Annual Beer Run in New Braunfels

Saturday, February 29th from 11am-3pm

The New Braunfels Jaycees presents the area’s one-of-a-kind 0.5K Beer Run benefitting the Big Brothers Big Sisters!

Location: Rockin R River Rides – Gruene, TX 

For additional information, visit their site:

www.NBBeerRun.comThis is not your average race! Sign up for New Braunfels’ 5th annual 0.5K raising money to benefit a local non-profit while not requiring too much “leg work” – did we mention that beer is included? The race is short, just circling the block and returning to the starting point. Not too fast, as we’ve added one technical element to the race that you’ve never seen. Race the block with a pint of beer, but don’t spill too much or you’ll be disqualified! Finish with your beer above the “spill line” and with the fastest time for a grand prize! 

FAMILY FRIENDLY – WE HAVE A KIDS RACE!!!! Families are invited. We will have a face painter, bouncy house, and separate kids race. Children from ages of 4-12 are welcome to purchase tickets and race for prizes.

And there’s a prize for BEST COSTUME as well!!! For those that simply finish, we’ll have lots of fun, entertainment, games, raffles, a kidzone and more for you to enjoy a great afternoon.

What does my Adult ticket include? A ticket reserves your spot on race day for participation in the 0.5K Beer Run and includes an event t-shirt, race number, commemorative silicon race cup, and (oh, by the way) a pint of racing beer and a congratulatory beer once you’ve finished! ***Only the first 300 people who purchase a ticket are guaranteed a t-shirt.

Free Event!

Visit us in Blanco at Gillen’s (1725 US-281 Blanco, TX 78606) this Saturday to enjoy a fun-filled evening celebrating community, the arts and nature.  In an effort to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s Texas, Maverick’s is hosting the first of a series of fund raising events, “Art is Everywhere.”  There are so many benefits to living a life rife with art and animals, surrounded by supportive people, good music, fine gourmet goodies and tasty wine.  In fact, these elements, combined with an attitude geared toward life-long learning will delay early onset Alzheimer’s and inhibit the development of the disease, which now impacts 1 in 5 Americans.

On Saturday, Maverick’s will share a fine art collection with Blanco and the Austin community.  This horse-centric and Native American art, which many of you have been able to enjoy here at our stables or following along with us online, will be available for acquisition with 10% of proceeds benefiting Alzheimer’s Texas.  A great selection of silent auction items will be available as well, including tickets to Austin Opera, Sherwood Forest, Krause Springs, Mt. Playmore, a Microderm facial at Petit Beau Ange, a photo shoot with Lindsay Mac Studio and more!  Live music by Full Moon Medicine and BBQ from Porky’s of Lockhart provide almost enough entertainment.  But –hold your horses — Rush, the mini horse fund raiser extraordinaire will be present to make the event extra special.  Weave flowers into his mane and snag some selfies with this beautiful paint horse to celebrate “Art is Everywhere.”  Want to learn more about the artists who’s work will be debuted?  Click HERE.
