2016 Golf and Rally – Success!
The 2016 Paul & Susan Henderson Golf and Rally, a collaborative effort of the Greater Dallas Razorback Club (GDRC) and Arkansas Alumni Association-Dallas Chapter (DCAAA), was fabulous! The weather started out chilly with rain in the forecast. However, temps warmed up and the rain stayed away making for an excellent day on the golf course (not counting my round). We had approximately 120 golfers, with the numbers almost evenly split between the GDRC and DCAAA.
Coach Bielema was stationed on one of the par 3 tee boxes and hit a drive for each team. Of course – in typical Coach B fashion – he hit his drive in sandals.
The Rally dinner later was even better. We had BBQ (chicken, pork, beef, ribs) that was smoked on site and was delicious. Coach B, as he always does, gave us an entertaining update on the state of Razorback football. He highlighted not only the athletic side of the team, but also the tremendous academic achievements of his players.
In addition to enjoying a day of Razorback fellowship, the Rally is the primary fundraiser for the GDRC. This year didn’t disappoint. For our live auction two of our members donated 4 tickets to the winning bidder’s choice of Cowboy game, in their suite, with parking and all the food and beverages. This sold for $3000.
Coach B then took the gavel in hand and auctioned some tickets to the Alabama game. He added in a few extra inducements and got the price for a pair of tickets past $1000 – and the winning bidder took several pair at that price.
For everyone that showed up to play golf, enjoy BBQ, and listen to Coach B – thanks a million. Because of your support the GDRC was able to raise a hefty chuck of change for our donation to the Razorback Foundation in support of Razorback athletics.
If you missed it this year, not to worry – we’ll be doing it again next year.
