Celebration Dinner
Sunday, April 25, 2021

6:00 pm – Celebration dinner will be held at the latest new venue to the Hill Country, Vista Oaks, which is located just outside of Fredericksburg on US Highway 290 next to the Wildseed Farm. Dinner will be followed by a live auction that will feature one-of-a-kind trips and merchandise. Enjoy fine cuisine and mingle with old and new friends before the following day’s golf tournament. Dress is country club casual.

7:30 pm – In addition to dinner and live auction, the Forging Futures Classic will host a tribute to Frank Sinatra, one of the most popular and influential musical artists of the 20th century! Who better to bring the essence of Ol’ Blue Eyes to the Texas Hill Country but the exceptional Dave Halston. Critics have raved about Halston’s tribute to the iconic Sinatra, calling it “stunning” and “spot-on”. Halston creates a brilliant interpretation of the beloved Chairman of the Board. Halston has impressed more than a few Sinatra fans. After seeing Dave perform, Frank’s widow, Barabara Sinatra, called his performance “Wonderful!”. She was brought to tears by his rendition of “My Way”, Frank’s signature song. He has also entertained Jeanne Martin (Mrs. Dean Martin), recording artist Michael Feinstein, recording artist Steve Tyrell and Mr. Las Vegas himself, Wayne Newton. Like Sinatra, Dave’s natural charm and charisma is genuine while sporting a familiar swagger and delivering that smooth ribbon of sound. Haltson does something few performers are capable of doing – a tribute to “Frank” that is patently authentic!  Mr. Halston’s performace is sponsored by Hill Country Memorial.
