The new Texas A&M coach and the semi-new LSU coach will visit the Touchdown Club of Houston over the next couple of weeks, and tickets are still available to both events that help raise money for area high schools and prep athletes.
The Aggies’ Jimbo Fisher will speak on the recently-completed spring drills and his expectations for his first A&M team at noon Wednesday at the JW Marriott on Westheimer in the Galleria, and about 50 tickets remain, the touchdown club’s Neal Farmer said.
A week later on May 2, second-year LSU coach Ed Orgeron will speak to the touchdown club, and plenty of tickets remain for the engagement at the JW Marriott.
Tickets are $50 each, and tables seat 10 for both events. A regular table cost $500, while bronze ($750), silver ($1,000), gold ($1,500) and platinum ($2,500) tables also are available. Visit the club’s website here to buy a ticket or table.
The Touchdown Club of Houston has placed about $200,000 worth of weight equipment in 41 Houston-area high schools over the last 16 years, and has awarded more than $200,000 in scholarships over the past 19 years to area high school seniors, according to the club.
