The 2015 Alvin High School Baseball fundraising banquet is set for January 24th in the Alvin High School cafeteria. This year, due to fabulous sponsor commercial filming by a professional production company, the banquet will be on the fourth Saturday in January instead of the third Saturday.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m. for browsing the fantastic auction and raffle items that the players and parents are collecting. The program and dinner begin at 6:30 p.m., and tickets remain at only $15! Culinary Arts is preparing the dinner, and the players serve the meal—every guest served in approximately seven minutes of being seated. They are good!

Meals served & presentation begins
Each year we sell about 400 tickets to this banquet and raise funds to improve the facilities and purchase items for the players. All proceeds go the players, the program, or the field.
The Banquet Program and Auction
The program includes an introduction of the players, a stirring video of them in the off season, and a video of sponsor commercials starring the Alvin Baseball players. The highlight of the program is the live auction that always brings prized and uncommon items.
See a list of items from previous years. Prime items this year will be a J.J. Watt autographed jersey; a Nathan Eovaldi jersey and his game-worn cleats, both personally signed at the banquet for you; and an annual family membership to Alvin Golf & Country Club. We will also have a raffle for a top-of-the-line “pig hunting rifle,” along with many other live and silent auction items.
The silent auction begins when the doors open. A cake auction is also included with elaborate and delicious desserts for your table. Go in as a group and enjoy these treats, or take one home!
