David Hubenak of the Wallis Knights of Columbus recounts the history of this homegrown event. From its humble beginning 50 years ago in a small two room school house that served as the K of C Hall, Council 3793 has transformed this annual fundraising event for local charities into something special.
The annual Wild Game Supper is now considered one of the largest the state of Texas. Dedicated Council members with culinary experience prepare wild game and other exotic dishes for hundreds of event participants on a donation basis each year. It began with a modest raffle consisting of only five rifles and shotguns and has evolved into Grand Raffle status featuring as many as 140 quality rifles and shotguns. This year’s raffle will include a specially engraved “Knights of Columbus Commemorative 50th Anniversary” rifle.
The Council continues to honor, reward, and recognize area clergy men and women regardless of religious affiliation. It also consults with County and local law-enforcement personnel each year to identify one individual to be the deserving recipient of the Council’s “Peace Officer of the Year” award. In addition to the Wild Game Supper, there’s the popular Gun Raffle and “Penny Potluck” drawing, along with other games.
All are welcome to enjoy this one of a kind event and support local charities!
As preparations are being made to host this event, the Council is mindful of the COVID-19 precautions.
