NOT YOUR NORMAL GALA
Wine & Whiskey Pull

From VICTORY cellars to yours…stop by the Wine Pull to “pull” a fabulous bottle of wine. Everyone is a winner at the Wine Pull. Purchase a ticket, and pick your numbered cork to receive your bottle of wine.

 

Stop by our Whiskey Pull for a chance to “blindly pull” a bottle of whiskey. Guests draw a number to determine which bottle of whiskey they have won.

 

There is no limit to the number of times you can purchase a Pull. We will store your whiskey and wine for you until the end of the evening.

Pig Races

Here they come, snout-to-snout, down the stretch, back by popular demand! The George Ranch arena will be home to the most-talked-about track in town – the pig races! A favorite among partygoers, adorable piglets compete, running the course in front of a cheering, standing-room-only crowd. Be sure not to miss out!

 

Interested in sponsoring one of our sweet swine?  We supply the perky piglets and you provide the name

LAS VEGAS STYLE GAMBLING

Test your luck in our casino area.  Start by making a minimum donation of $100 to receive chips and our special currency, “Baroness Bux”.  Use your casino chips to buy into any of the blackjack, craps or roulette tables.

 

The more you play, the more you win…. The longer you are at the tables, the more Baroness Bux you will receive!

GENERAL STORE & VICTORY SHOPPES

Once you have collected all your Baroness Bux, it’s time to shop til you drop! At 11:00pm, our VICTORY Shoppes and General Store areas open to standing room only shoppers. These areas offer hundreds of great items to take home. But don’t bring your credit cards, because these stores only accept Baroness Bux

VICTORY Plaza

Come visit the newest area of our event, the VICTORY Plaza. Bring your sweet tooth because you will find coffee, desserts, toffee, chocolate fountain and a Churro truck.

There will be additional gaming tables and a bar as well as a photo booth to capture the memories.

Boots in need of a shine?  Then take a seat at our Shoe Shine and Hat Steaming Station.

GEORGE RANCH HISTORICAL PARK
