Calling all Texans to help save the ‘Mighty T’ on Saturday, April 7, 2019. The Battleship Texas Foundation is holding its inaugural Spirit of Texas benefit at Armadillo Palace on April 7, 2019 to raise awareness and support to save Battleship Texas. Join the Foundation and fellow Battleship Texas supporters for an evening of award-winning BBQ, beer, dancing, a live performance by legendary Texas Country singer/songwriter Cory Morrow, a silent auction and more. The Foundation will also honor its inaugural Spirit of Texas honorees:

• Marcus Luttrell, decorated Navy SEAL and best-selling author of “Lone Survivor”
• John P. Poindexter, a recipient of a Silver Star and two Purple Heart awards, and former United States Army Captain
• Shell Oil Company – Deer Park, who is also a Spirit of Texas sponsor and an ongoing supporter of the Foundation and its efforts.

Having more than a century of idle saltwater exposure has vastly damaged the vessel, and as the last surviving dreadnought of both world wars, the Battleship Texas needs your help. All proceeds garnered from the Spirit of Texas, including sponsorships and donations, will go toward the Foundation’s efforts to preserve the ship for current and future generations.
