Annual Support Campaign Success!

 ASC donors

Have you seen out Thank You Banners up along the Katy Trail?

Each fall Friends of the Katy Trail makes a final fundraising push with an Annual Support Campaign to ensure that we end the year financially strong. This year our goal was to raise $150,000 and we are delighted to announce that our 2015 Annual Support Campaign raised more than $190,000!

Under the leadership of our Annual Support Campaign chairs, Luann Hicks and Ken Malcolmson, we reached out to Trail users, neighboring  businesses, and charitable foundations to spread our message and ask for support. We have been overwhelmed with community generosity this year making this our most successful campaign to date. We would like to extend a big thank you to Luann and Ken; we could not have done it without you.

Our friends at the Katy Trail Ice House sure know how to throw a party and their inaugural 2015 KTIH Invitational was no exception. The golf tournament was held on March 23rd after being pushed forward a few weeks from the original date due to freezing weather. Troy Aikman and Jason Garrett served as honorary event chairs and we are excited to announce that both have agreed to return to the event again this year! The tournament was a smashing success and generated $75,000 for the Katy Trail.

The 2016 KTIH Invitational
is set for March 21st 2016!
