The Amazing NACE Fundraiser: There's a Rumble in the Jungle

There's A Rumble in the Jungle

What is the Amazing NACE? 

Each year we do an annual fundraiser and this year our theme is A Rumble in the Jungle an Amazing Race style scavenger hunt with the help of GoGame!

Teams will race to solve clues and challenges as quickly as possible to beat the competition and be the official winners of The Amazing NACE! And don’t worry if you don’t have anyone to go with you, you can either hang out and watch everyone solve puzzles while relaxing at the stops with a drink, or we can pair you up with a team to compete with! Anyone can race (we promise it’s not like the Tough Mudder or an obstacle course kind of race), but you certainly don’t have to race to have a great time!!

Once the scavenger hunt race is complete, join us for an after-party back at Palm Door on Sabine where we’ll have food, drinks, and an awesome Ticket Package Rumble Raffle for some incredible prize packages!

Our Race winners will be announced and we’ll party the night away with help from our generous corporate and in-kind sponsors (which could be you!

Before the big day we'll post a list of the packages and you can make your selections in advance and we'll drop the tickets for you!

Sabotage other teams or individuals to slow them down throughout the race! For example... a sabotaged team could have to stop what they are doing and to sing the Star Spangled Banner while balancing on 1 foot! 
Sabotage cards are available for pre-purchase online and on site at the fundraiser, and just like regular raffle tickets, you do not need to be present to sabotage! If you won't be able to attend but still want to sway the game you can still buy sabotage cards and we'll reach out before the event to find out who you want to sabotage!


The Amazing NACE Fundraiser

Not only is it the Austin Chapter’s award-winning annual fundraiser, but also it's a rumble in the jungle!

Proceeds of our annual fundraisers benefit the Foundation of NACE and provide NACE-member scholarships in support of attendance at the organization’s National Experience each year. What is the Foundation of NACE? In 1985, NACE created The Foundation of NACE as the charitable arm of the organization. With founding president Peter Guenther, The Foundation’s mission was to foster education and training in the fields of food, beverage and catering management. Now in its 32nd year, The Foundation’s mission is to support the catering and events industry by educating our members and investing in our community.

Every summer, NACE Nationals hosts on its annual education conference, Experience! NACE Experience Conference is THE premier conference for catering and creative event partners. It is the perfect blend of creativity and connections, from the meals being served to the high-rated sessions and award-winning keynote speakers. A portion of proceeds raised from our fundraiser goes back to local NACE members to provide scholarships to attend this informative conference.
