Alumni and Family Summer Gathering 2018

The 2018 TCU Ranch Management Alumni & Family Summer Gathering is just a few weeks away.  We are busy finalizing the details of the event, and we hope you will contribute to the planning of this fun filled weekend.

2018 marks the 32nd year of the Summer Gathering.  We are excited to host the event on June 8th-9th at the Texas Tech Equestrian Center in Lubbock, TX.  The arena is located just southwest of Lubbock and there are stalls for rent on site.

The Summer Gathering is one of several events hosted by the TCU Ranch Management alumni.  The event is planned entirely by volunteer leaders and financed by donations.  This event is a way for our alumni and their families to catch up and reconnect with other alumni and their families.  It is also a way for us to raise scholarship money and money to help alumni through a crisis fund that is currently being created.

The Summer Gathering would not be possible without the support and contributions from people like you.  We would love for you to consider a sponsorship opportunity and be part of this wonderful event; please get in touch with one of us regarding sponsorship opportunities.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions or suggestions.

We appreciate your support and hope that you will join us at this year’s event!

Sincerely,
