AquaBoom Wild Game Dinner Benefits His Joshua House for Men

A wild game dinner benefiting His Joshua House is 5:30-9 p.m. July 2 at Kingsland Community Center.

KINGSLAND — His Joshua House gives men who are trying to put the specter of drug and alcohol abuse and addiction behind them a place to recover and regain their lives. It’s a faith-based organization that uses a 12-step program of Christian principles.

“It’s a place for men to start over, again, get some hope,” said David Biegel, a His Joshua House board member. “We serve a number of counties — Llano, Burnet, San Saba, Mason — and it takes funds to help make it happen.”

Organizers are hosting a wild game dinner fundraiser for His Joshua House from 5:30-9 p.m. Monday, July 2, at Kingsland Community Center, 3451 Rose Hill Drive. Tickets are $20 with proceeds benefiting His Joshua House.

People can try a variety of wild game dishes, including axis steaks, venison steaks, deer sausage, axis and elk sliders, alligator tail, and maybe some mountain oysters.

“There will be a lot of things to sample,” Biegel said.

Along with the meal, there will be live music, door prizes and other giveaways, and silent and live auctions. Items up for grabs include firearms, other merchandise, and services.

Biegel said guns include an AR-15, a Henry lever-action .22, and shotguns.

“Most of these are being provided by local businesses,” he said. “We have a lot of support from all over the area. People and businesses, they see (His Joshua House is) definitely going to make a longterm difference in the community but makes an immediate difference in these men’s lives.”

According to the His Joshua House website, the organization’s “goal is to assist men in establishing a positive foundation upon which they can build productive, spiritually-led lives. By providing a safe place to begin recovery, we offer men an opportunity to restructure their lives through 12-step programs that utilize Christian principles.”
