Nimitz Texas Barbecue

Do you love good Texas barbecue and cold beer? How about helping a good cause?

We're bringing back Admiral Chester Nimitz' old tradition of hosting a Texas barbecue. During times of both war and peace, while in the territories of Hawaii and Guam Admiral Nimitz would host a barbecue for the Texans, and those who wished they were Texans! It was a great way to have a few hours of good food and fun while being temporarily distracted from their military duties.

We'll have barbecue from the Corpus Christi Mustangs, cold beer, live music from 'Almost Patsy Cline,' dancing, a silent auction and someone will win the ATV raffle! Some of the great auction items include bed and breakfast stays in Fredericksburg, a half day bird hunt at Santa Anna Hunting Ranch and some bottles of local Texas wine! We're counting on great spring weather and promising a good time. Sounds like a good break from the daily grind, right?

Our event will be held in the Memorial Courtyard at the museum. All proceeds will go to the Admiral Nimitz Foundation and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund-Build the Center. For ticket prices and purchasing, go to www.Nimitz-museum.org/event_2010BBQ.asp

We hope to see you there!
