The Heritage Experience

Three Spectacular Parties for Preservation

The 51st Annual Heritage Ball, a storied and beloved event in our community, will take place on Saturday, October 5th, 2024!  As we have reflected on the last half century, and dreamed about our future, we decided to make one major change! We have a NEW offering to replace the silent auction that we feel is better aligned with the wishes of our patrons.

We are excited to share that we will be hosting three exclusive, and incredibly special gatherings that are ONLY available through the Heritage Foundation of Williamson County. These experiences can’t be curated or bought anywhere else. They are uniquely reflective of this community, and they will be the “talk of the town” this year!

Each offering, listed below, is limited to the number of people indicated with each description.  Tickets are available for purchase starting today and once they are gone, they are gone.  All proceeds from these events go to support our mission of protecting, restoring, and repurposing the places that make this county so special to all of us, ensuring that our community can enjoy them for generations to come.

P.S. We will have a single LIVE AUCTION item the evening of the Heritage Ball. Stay tuned…
