Dear Longhorn IFT members,
It is never too early to discuss our annual Holiday Party! Every year, our elected volunteers work hard to put together a memorable evening; I am hopeful that you will be as excited as I am with what we have in store for you this year.
Our evening begins at the Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine, TX.  Although an indoor waterpark, we will be on the second floor in our private event room so no swimwear necessary! The lobby will be beautifully decorated for the holiday season, Santa may make an appearance, and we will be serenaded by DFW's best Elvis impersonator, Carleton Hurdle!

VENUE: Greatwolf Lodge, 2nd Floor 
ADDRESS: 100 Greatwolf Drive Grapevine, TX 76051
DATE: December 6, 2018
TIME: 5:00 PM - 11:00 PM
COST: $75.00 per person, includes buffet & drinks(details below)
RSVP: Please email Chris Beninate and let him know if you plan to attend. 
  • 4 hours (5 - 9 PM) of complimentary beer and wine

  • Chicken Satay

 Dinner Buffet:
  • Main: Salmon or Beef Tips

For a reasonable price, there will be ambiance, drinks, dinner and entertainment. This is a perfect way to spend an evening out with your significant other, or a great way to treat your staff for all of the hard work that they do during the year.
