It's almost time to kick off a new season of Thankful Thursday, at the smoke-free Beacon Club!

We’re back Thursday nights for the Fall 2019 season with our friends at Tito’s Vodka as we add to over $1.5 million you’ve helped raise for local charities – and as always, Thankful is the only event of its kind that gives 100% of the proceeds to local organizations doing good things for our community.  Join us on Thursday nights starting September 12th. Every Thursday there is a chance to win $500 in the bottle draw just for being in the room, and Tito’s will generously give the same amount to EACH of our charities to start them off.

There is a Free Tito’s cocktail for everyone 21+, but all ages are welcome to this family-friendly event.

Every Thankful Thursday includes a live auction, door prizes, 50/50 raffle, the Lucky Duck game and lots of fun & surprises along the way.

The party starts at 5 each night at the smoke-free Beacon, and the live auction gets underway around 6:30.
