Ball High School’s hospitality program will present its “Tuffy’s On A Roll” fundraising event from 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Friday at the San Luis Hotel, 5222 Seawall Blvd., in Galveston.
Tickets are $25 for students and $50 for adults.
All proceeds from ticket sales will go toward the students’ goal of raising $30,000 to purchase a food truck.
The event, which is sponsored by the San Luis Resort, will feature Dr. James Petrick, from the department of recreation, park and tourism sciences at Texas A&M University as the guest speaker, live music entertainment by Cortez, an up-and-coming artist and Ball High School alum, dinner from various food stations serving items from the “Food Truck” menu, and a silent auction featuring an array of items.
“We realize the importance of investing in the future of the hospitality industry and have seen the benefits firsthand from working with hundreds of Ball High students throughout the years,” said Paul Schultz, vice president of hospitality, Landry’s Inc. “They have big aspirations to be the first students to own and operate a food truck and we are honored to work alongside them to make their dreams become reality.”
