Brother Manny González (Texas A&I University, '82) and his wife, Lucy, have graciously opened up their home for what is sure to be a great evening of food, wine, and brotherhood, November 9th, 2018 at 6:30PM CT.

The best part is that registration fees have been reduced to $1.00 per person!

The evening will include updates about Phi Kappa Theta throughout the country and will focus primarily on the growth and activity in Texas.

A highlight of the event is sure to be the wine tasting led by sommelier Lucy González. Lucy is the CEO of Vega San Juan (VSJ). VSJ is the name of the vineyard / wine business in Spain. Lucy and Brother Manny González, are partners in VRS Winery. The wines to be shared that evening have been generously donated by the González family.

Muela - Premium Handcrafted Knife - Criollo Model: Muela Knives are custom Spanish hunting knives that have been made by the Muela family for generations, and utilize tough Moly-Vanadium stainless steel. Each Muela Hunting Knife is handsome as well as functional with handle materials that include Red Stag antler, exotic stabilized hardwoods and Pakawood.

Spanish Abanico: The Valencian company Aire Distinto is the brand of fans designed by Lola Blay. Her designs are made with various materials and are hand painted. Her imagination brings us to a cheerful and avant-garde collection with lots of color and patterns of flowers, fruits, animals and images of Las Meninas ("Ladies in Waiting").
