The South Texas Botanical Gardens is a beautiful local attraction that has so much to
offer all who visit. Their annual fundraiser Moonlight in the Gardens is a grand gala event.
Between fine dining, dancing and catching up with old friends, it is a wonderful opportunity to
give back and allow the Botanical Gardens to continue to flourish. This year Aquaria Service’s
own Denise Housler jumped in with a tremendous leap to assist in creating new attractions,
which in turn made it a spectacular event raising much needed funds for new Garden projects.
The highlights were a huge Silent Auction offering a large array of items, to a Dine N
Dash eatery delight of restaurant gift cards, a Grand Galaxy of luxury items and a Wine Pull
offering tasty treats, giving back had never been easier.
Of course, all of Aquaria agreed to help out. There was Denise (creativity, organization,
leadership), Teri (leadership, organization), David (creative woodworking skills), and Lori and
Katelyn (organization, e...
Ronald McDonald House is such an incredible organization helping children and their families.
The work that is done there is such an inspiration, that Aquaria Services is proud to be a part of helping bring some comfort and smiles to the children and their families. Little did we know how many football fans and future players were in the House.
It came to be time for their annual Casa De Amor and this year the guest of honor was Dallas Cowboys Legend, Emmitt Smith. Aquaria just knew they had to do something special to show him how much it meant having him visit the House. It was such a hit with the kids, we are leaving it “blue” for football season.
We have been working with Flexcrete for many years now on tons of projects and we love the results it provides our ponds and large water feature projects! Below is a flyer Flexcrete created showcasing a fountain we built at the Robstown City Hall. Learn more at Flexcrete.com
South Texas Botanical Gardens holds a special place in Aquaria Service’s hearts.
When their annual fundraiser, Moonlight in the Gardens came up, Aquaria Services dove at the chance to assist. In addition to Denise chairing the Silent Auction, we also came up with the idea of having a Wine Pull. Aquaria donated the design, construction and decoration of a Giant Hibiscus Flower with holes for the wine bottles.
It was a huge hit, with everyone having a blast and raising much needed funds for the South Texas Botanical Gardens.
Ronald McDonald House of Charities has an aquarium donated by Jay and Kim Woodall, with routine service donated by Aquaria Services.
Their Casa de Amor 2016 fundraiser was scheduled, with guest speaker Tony Parker from the San Antonio Spurs. Being huge basketball fans, Aquaria jumped at the chance to surprise Tony and the kiddos, showing him some support from the House. We “Spurred Up” the aquarium decorations.
Even the Fishies got excited proving they can be Hoops Fans!!
When Robstown TX begin the renovations on their city hall, we jumped at the opportunity to help them create a relaxing and enjoyable focal point. We worked alongside city contractors to build a fountain that would encourage thoughtfulness and tranquility.
Flip through the slideshow below for a step-by-step look of what it's like to build a city hall fountain from the ground up!
We worked with the Coastal Bend Audubon Society to create an environmentally conscious water feature that could be enjoyed by both the birds and the bird watchers!
David created some beautiful carved concrete leaves that drip and flow into a little concrete stream, which disappears seamlessly into the stony ground. This water feature is powered by several solar panels, leaving behind a very green footprint (and a few bird foot prints as well).
