Although the coronavirus crisis prevented us from celebrating this year’s FightNight XXXII, it did not stop us from drawing winners from our annual Associate Leadership Council raffle. This year, the raffle raised $98,400 to help fund the 2020 ALC class project as part of the ongoing Dallas Catalyst Project.
This year, our ALC class will work alongside Cornerstone Baptist Church to install a small market next to the Cornerstone Community Laundromat and fill the second of three sites in a shopping center on South Boulevard. The market would provide Forest District residents with access to low-cost household items.
You can learn more about the project and the rest of TREC community investment efforts during the pandemic here.
We are grateful to this year’s ALC class and FightNight XXXII chairs the Lunsford family for working so hard on both the project and in selling tickets and procuring prizes for the raffle. We’d also like to thank everyone who purchased raffle tickets and the companies that donated prizes for their support of the raffle.
We would also like to recognize ALC class member Matt Goyne with Compatriot Capital, who raised $35,750, more than any other class member in the history of FightNight! While we regret not being able to recognize you in the ring this year, we look forward to celebrating this accomplishment during our fall event on September 17.
Now for our raffle prizes. On Thursday, April 30, TREC hosted a virtual raffle drawing to determine prize winners. We’d like to congratulate each of the winners listed below.
