The Highland Lakes Service League’s annual Chuck Wagon Chow Down has sold out in advance for the second year in a row. But don’t worry: You can still participate in an online silent auction that is part of the Jan. 27 event at the YMCA in Burnet. Online bidding begins Jan. 19.

“The Highland Lakes Service League Executive Board and the Chuck Wagon Chow Down Committee wish to thank everyone who sponsored, donated, and purchased tickets,” said a spokesperson for the event. “Your support will make it possible to continue the mission of providing scholarships to adult women, grants to non-profit organizations, and supporting community needs throughout Burnet and Llano counties.”

Because of a successful 2023 Chow Down fundraiser, the Service League was able to award 14 scholarships to women wanting to return to school as well as hand out $130,000 in grants to support community needs and nonprofits last year.
