June luncheon at Hard Rock Cafe

Graffiti Wall Collage    

Thank you to our friends at Hard Rock Cafe San Antonio for our June luncheon.  It was an informal luncheon with a networking opportunity.  


We featured Goen South's brand new digital Graffiti Wall.  It's a way to add some fun to your party with this exciting, interactive wall. Available exclusively in the state of Texas by Goen South Weddings. As the exclusive carrier in Texas for this interactive, customizable, backdrop of fun you can guarantee everyone at your event will be out of their seats and lining up to create their very own art piece.  The Graffiti Wall has dozens of backdrops, stencils, and colors available. The team at Goen South can work with a couple one-on-one to create a personalized design specially made for their event. The "spray can," which is an infrared remote control, acts as mouse on a large computer screen, and allows the "tagger" to bring their ideas to life. For more information, reserve your Graffiti Wall or for inquiries, click here

  • Ashley Mitchell with Six Flags Fiesta Texas for the donation of two pairs of park entry tickets
  • Ashley Kinney with Kirby's Prime Steakhouse for the donation of a $40 gift card
  • Michelle Moon with the Witte Museum for the donation of the giftbag and two tickets to the "Cocktails and Culture" event
