Preserve Granbury invites you to help us raise funds to help keep the history of Hood County alive by being a sponsor for our 2019 fundraising party at Sledge Distillery. The area has a long history of moonshiners, with our county to the south being the unofficial capitol of moonshining in Texas during prohibition. Hood County has a tale of a sheriff who couldn’t carry a gun after being convicted of stealing a cow, so his wife carried it for him. He took the cow because someone owed him for moonshine he sold them. The stealing offense had a lesser penalty than moonshining. Sledge Distillery has history too, with the family recipe perfected by Dub Sledge during WWII.
During the 2017 fundraiser, Preserve Granbury, over 380 guests enjoyed the event while raising funds for historic preservation projects and supporting the arts in Hood County. This year we expect to fill the 35 tables quickly, seating 280 people. This year we are moving the event to an afternoon to sunset affair, giving us the chance to see the sunset with a panoramic view. The event will be held Saturday, October 5th, 3 p.m. to 7 pm, and the distillery will remain open till 10 pm for those who want to linger.
Moonshine at Sunset benefits Preserve Granbury, a 501c3 organization.
