Another rescheduled event was just announced! It’s the Katy Trail Ice House Invitational that was to have taken place on Monday, March 2.
This inaugural event benefiting the Friends of the Katy Trail is being chaired by Buddy Cramer with Dallas Cowboy types Troy Aikman and Jason Garrett as honorary co-chairs. In addition to the golfing at Gleneagles Country Club, including lunch presented by Andrews Distributing at noon on Monday, March 23, there’s a Sunday Night Pre-Party sponsored by Perot on March 22 at…. Oh, but you’ve got to sign up to play or sponsor to find out where and when.
And if you do sign up as a sponsor, you’ll be in a flock of favs: Veritex Bank is the Golf Ball, Photo Book and Signage Sponsor; Andrews Distributing is also the Schooner Sponsor; Ermenegildo Zegna is the Goodie Bag Sponsor; Highland Park Village is the Hat Sponsor; PegasusAblon is the Koozie Sponsor; Defeaseit.com is the Bag Tag Sponsor; Ralston Outdoor is the Towel Sponsor; Beam Suntory is the Driving Range Sponsor; and Outdoor Signs is the Printed Program Sponsor.
Eagle Sponsors are Patty and Andy Smith, Balfour Beatty Construction, Post Uptown Dallas Apartment Homes and Sysco Foods.
Of course, you’re wondering if Troy and Jason were able to reschedule their participation. Here’s the inside scoop:
The rescheduling of the event has created some challenges for our distinguished co-chairs. Troy Aikman is supposed to be at both the pre-party and play in the tournament. Jason has obviously Cowboy obligations … he might be at the party, but he definitely can’t be at the golf tourney.
Regardless if the boys show or no, the money is going to support one of the most popular spots throughout Dallas — the Katy Trail. If you’ve ever walked or run the 3.5-mile path that winds through the Uptown and Oak Lawn neighborhoods, then you know that its popularity is due to its being maintained constantly. Such maintenance takes money.
According to Buddy, “The Katy Trail is in partnership with the City of Dallas, which owns the property; however, it is the Friends of the Katy Trail that raises over $700,000 per year for maintenance and management to keep the trail in peak condition. If you care about the Katy Trail, we encourage you to tee up with us on March 23.”
