GENEROUS 2016-17 SPONSORS
Much of what we are able to do as an Association is possible because of those who help sponsor special events.

FEBRUARY 18, 2017
This year the Dallas Gathering is being combined with a Scholarship Fundraiser at TOP GOLF in the Colony. Top Golf is an indoor unique, challenging and fun experience for the whole family. There will be and fun for all who participate prior to the big gathering at the Haggard Party Barn.
The purpose of the events is renewing acquaintences and having an enjoyable evening. At the same time, we have a real need to fund the scholarships we have committed and awarding scholarships next fall. That's where the fundraising part of the Top Golf event comes in. If you will invite one person to sponsor you at the Top Golf Tournament, you attend both events for about half price Two sponsors make it free for you. The more sponsors you get, the more you can do in providing scholarships.
