Eldorado Game Association

About Us

The Eldorado Game Association is a non-profit organization made up of volunteers from the community of Eldorado, Texas. The organization was established over 30 years ago and has been self-sufficient through the help of our local businesses, ranchers and other generous donors. The Eldorado Game Association hosts its annual Game Dinner on the first Saturday in November each year, which is attended by over 1,000 individuals.

The prizes that bring people out to join us on the 1st Saturday of hunting season are gift certificates, 60+ guns, high quality coolers, deer feeders and blinds, hunting accessories and hundreds of other prizes for the outdoorsman.

With proceeds from the 2017 event, the Game Association has donated over $44,800 to 4-H and FFA clubs, Schleicher Co. Livestock & Food Show, SCISD for their FCCLA, UIL, Student Council, Yearbook, Career Fair, Perfect Attendance Lunch and Fall Festival, Daily Bread Program, Meals for Friends, Eldorado Ministerial Alliance, Schleicher Co. Child Welfare Board, Team Jorge, Eldorado Events, Eldorado Pride, Schleicher Co. Historical Society, Schleicher Co. Library, Eldorado Divide SWCD, Eldorado Masonic Lodge, Eldorado Girls Softball, and YMCA Football during 2018. In addition, we contributed $1,500 toward a new digital sign at the Schleicher Co. Courthouse. We were pleased to award five $2,000 scholarships to 2018 SCISD Seniors. We are proud to contribute $13,800 toward funding for a county trapper, as well as sponsoring the annual Big Buck Contest for Schleicher Co. hunters.

We are trying to expand the event in order to give more back to the community. We would be grateful if you could sponsor one of our prizes or make a donation to our organization. For more information, please contact Game Association President, Rico Forlano at 325-853-3331 or reply by mail to Eldorado Game Association, PO Box 553, Eldorado, TX 76936. Also, all donor names will be listed on a Prize List handout at the Game Dinner. Sponsorship levels are available as follows and these donors will be recognized on a banner at the event – Pope & Young Sponsors -$500-$900, Boone & Crockett Sponsors - $1000 & above. If you plan to participate at these levels, please return your contribution two weeks prior to the event.

Any contribution that you make to help us spread the enjoyment of hunting, preserve the right to continue the use of the outdoors and what it has to offer, and assist us in our support of the community will be greatly appreciated.
