Crockett County Deerfest Association
Business of the Month
The Ozona Chamber of Commerce would like to recognize the Crockett County Deerfest Association as our Business of the Month.
The Crockett County Deerfest was created 27 years ago as a community wide appreciation banquet for hunters. Typically 1,000 to 1,500 people attend the event and approximately $80,000 in prizes are raffled. Over the years, the Deerfest Association has raised enough money to build the Crockett County Convention Center in which the event is now housed. After construction, the building was donated to the county.
“The Crockett County Deerfest would not be what it is today without the foresight of the founding members, or the continued support of the residents and organizations in the community that come together to make this event happen,” said President, Greg Hopper. “Without the help, none of this would be possible. It is the people of Ozona, and the Crockett County hunters who have made Deerfest what it is.”
Again this year 10% of the admission will be donated to the West Texas Rehabilitation Center of Ozona.
In previous years, the Deerfest Association has purchased A/V equipment, put a roof on Ozona Community Center Day Care and helped finance the construction of the Crockett County EMS building. In 2013 the Deerfest contributed to the American Cancer Society, Blessings in a Backpack, Boy Scouts, COZ4OZ, Cub Scouts, Crockett County Care Center, Crockett County EMS, Helping Hands, Crockett County Civic & Youth Center, Crockett County 4-H, FFA, Knights of Columbus, Ozona Little League Base-ball, OLPH Youth, Ozona Chamber of Commerce, Ozona Community Center, Ministerial Alliance, Ozona Volunteer Fire Department, Ozona Women’s Forum, Ozona Women’s League, Perceptor Mu Chi Chapter, Project Graduation, Relay for Life, Toys for Tots, West Texas Rehab, YMCA Youth Football, Crockett County Library, DARE, Salvation Army, Texas Challenge Academy, The Ozona Wellness Center and The Wounded Warrior Project.
The 2014 recipients of Crockett County Deerfest Scholarships for $2,000 each were Sierra Stokes and Abby Newton, in the amount of $1,000 each were Vivian Medina and Saul Vargas. All monies are raised from the sale of door prize tickets, admission fees and our donors’ generous contributions. Among prizes given away in 2014 were 80+ guns, $10,000 in gift cards, any number of wonderful miscellaneous items, 4-wheelers and a 2014 Jeep Wrangler and other prizes.
The newly elected officers are, President-Greg Hopper, 1st Vice President-Jimmy Nowell, 2nd Vice President-Michael Mitchell, Treasurer-Sharon Martin, Secretary-Kelsey Kubala. Board Members are Eli DeLaCruz, Gary Yeager, Kody Kubala and Nathan DeHoyos.
