Individual tickets to lunch with Laura Bush scheduled for sale

August 20, 2015

PLAINVIEW – Individual tickets to hear former First Lady Laura Bush at Wayland Baptist University will go on sale Aug. 24. Mrs. Bush will be the featured speaker at the Willson Lectures on Wednesday, Oct. 21. The lecture will be followed by a luncheon and “fireside chat” between Mrs. Bush and Wayland President Dr. Paul Armes.

Individual tickets for the luncheon cost $125 and will be on sale from Aug. 24 – Sept. 15. The ticket includes a box lunch. Proceeds benefit student scholarships.

The luncheon will be held at noon in the Pete and Nelda Laney Student Activities Center. Doors to the venue will open at 11:30 a.m. Tickets must be purchased in advance. There are a limited number of seats and they will be sold on a first-come basis. Due to security requirements, no cell phones or cameras are allowed in the facility. Event photographers will be taking photos that will be used to produce a keepsake postcard that will be mailed to those in attendance.

Interested parties may also purchase a sponsorship table for eight individuals at $5,000, $3,000 or $1,500 prior to Aug. 24. Sponsorship packages include pictures with Mrs. Bush, copies of “Spoken from the Heart,” reserved seats in the 11 a.m. chapel service and premium seating at the luncheon.

The chapel service is open to the public. There is no charge for admission to chapel, but a ticket will be required as seating is limited. More information on chapel tickets will be available at a later date.
