Sealy, Texas, July 3, 2014 - The Sealy Community Foundation brings first-class entertainment and family fun to Sealy’s 6th Annual Sealybration July 11-12, Sealy, TX. Grammy-award winning country legend Steve Wariner will headline the entertainment line-up and new festivities, such as the car show and VIP tent for the Saturday night concerts, will draw more than 10,000 attendees.
“Sealybration is always a highly anticipated event that brings the town together to celebrate our great country and to make family memories,” said Melanie Willingham, President of the Sealy Community Foundation. “The event’s proceeds go towards higher education scholarships for Sealy High School seniors, as well as donations to local non-profit organizations. We have given more than $19,000 to deserving seniors and organizations in the last six years. It’s rewarding to not only provide a fun festival for the city to enjoy, but to also serve a need while doing so.”
