Texas State athletics raised $40,000 during Bobcat Bonanza

SUBMITTED REPORT

Texas State assistant athletic director for development Chris Park announced that the 21st Annual Bobcat Bonanza raised $40,000 to help fund scholarships for Bobcat student-athletes.

This year’s Bobcat Bonanza was held at the Texas Disposal Systems Exotic Game Ranch last Friday night, Feb. 20, and included a dinner provided by Texas Roadhouse restaurant, an exciting live auction and music by David Conger.

“This year’s event was a tremendous success because we raised 10,000 more than last year’s event,” Park said. “We sold more than 35 tables for the dinner and a crowd of over 450 attended this year.”

In addition, Texas State Athletics also addressed an excited and captive audience about the new construction projects within the department, in particular the new club and suite levels being built at the Bobcat Football Stadium. Construction for 15 luxury suites and 450 club seats began in January and is scheduled to be completed for use before Texas State’s first football game in 2009 against Angelo State.

“We want to thank our title sponsor Texas Roadhouse, Brown Distributing, G&M Catering and the Texas Disposal Systems Exotic Game Ranch for their support,” Park added. “We could not have been so successful without their help.”
