More than 1,000 people showed support for the UTSA Alumni Association at the monthly Third Thursday event, sponsored by Silver Eagle Distributors. As a joint event with “1st and Rowdy Tailgate Party,” guests got the chance to meet the UTSA Roadrunners and head coach Larry Coker.
Attendees were able to have their photo taken with Coach Coker, and all proceeds from the event, held at the UTSA Institute of Texan Cultures, benefitted the UTSA Alumni Association. It was also an opportunity to purchase some of the first season tickets for the inaugural UTSA football season, which will begin in the fall of 2011.
Third Thursday began in July as a way to raise funds for non-profits and a place for ‘younger’ professionals to enjoy an evening with friends. The next Third Thursday will be held at The Pearl Stable Breezeway on October 21, and all of the $10 door donations will benefit Hope4Heroes. A new addition this month will be a Kids Corner, hosted by the Twig book shop.
