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 1,200 individuals.

The prizes that bring people out to join us on the 1st Saturday of hunting season are gift certificates, 75+ guns, high quality coolers, deer feeders and blinds, hunting accessories and hundreds of other prizes for the outdoorsman.

With proceeds from the 2018 event, the Game Association has donated over $58,250 to 4-H and FFA clubs, Schleicher Co. Livestock & Food Show, SCISD for their FCCLA, UIL, Student Council, Yearbook, Career Fair, Perfect Attendance Lunch, Eldorado Eagle Boosters, Elementary Teacher Appreciation, FCA 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, Little Eagles, YMCA Football, West Texas Men of Courage and FUMC Eldorado for school backpacks during 2019. In addition, we contributed $2,000 to Sonora flood victims in the fall of 2018. We were pleased to award ten $2,000 scholarships to 2019 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.
