Fort Worth Vaqueros Announces Capirinhas & Cleats Kickoff Party
The Vaqueros need cleats, not for the minor league soccer team, but for the community. In order to do so, the Vaqueros are hosting the Capirinhas & Cleats Kickoff Party presented by Rafain, The First Prime Brazilian Steakhouse to benefit the Kicks for Kids program. Capirinhas & Cleats begins at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday May 13 at Rafain Brazilian Steakhouse and Crockett Square amid the trendy West 7th district. The capirinha is Brazil’s national cocktail and a specialty at Rafain, which will be only $5 during the event.”Rafain Brazilian Steakhouse is excited to partner with the Vaqueros and promote Brazilian culture in Fort Worth! Gooooaaaaalllllll!” Hayley Young, Rafain Brazilian Steakhouse’s assistant manager said. There is no cover charge for the event. However, every supporter that brings either a new or gently used pair of cleats (for youth or high school age players) to the party will get a pair of tickets to the May 16 season opener.
“We look forward to kicking off the 2015 season with our incredible supporters and sponsors,” Vaqueros owner Michael Hitchcock said. “We hope all our fans can join us at Rafain to party for a good cause. Please, bring a pair a gently used cleats, enjoy hanging with fans, meet the Vaqueros players and enjoy a capirinha and great Brazilian food while we celebrate the start of the 2015 Vaqueros season.”
