TRTF Plans Exciting New Event at TRTA Annual Convention!

The Texas Retired Teachers Foundation (TRTF) looks forward to the upcoming 65th Annual TRTA Convention in San Antonio, being held April 8-10, 2018.

For the first time in its history, TRTF will host a golf tournament to raise funds for its charitable programs! Held on the Palmer Golf Course adjacent to La Cantera Resort on April 9, 2018, the $125 tickets include breakfast, a box lunch, swag bag, range balls, green fee and cart. Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, closest to the pin and longest drive. Registration begins at 7:00 a.m., and the shotgun start for the four-person scramble begins at 8:00 a.m. Mulligans and raffle tickets will be available for purchase onsite.

Sponsors Needed!

TRTF is in need of sponsors for this first annual event! If your local unit is interested in being a hole sponsor for just $150, please visit this link to learn more (or to register as a player). The first thirty players receive ten percent off the ticket price by using the promo code TENOFF.

TRTF Luncheon, Training Session, and More!

As in years past, TRTF will host a luncheon on April 10 at 12:15 p.m. The menu features crisp prosciutto chicken, mashed potatoes, and seasonal vegetables with vanilla strawberry cheesecake with whipped almond cream for dessert. Tickets are $45 per person and may be purchased when you submit your convention registration form (see page 8 of the first quarter issue of The VOICE or register online).

Our 30 Classroom Assistance Grant and 15 Beginning Teacher Scholarship recipients will be announced during the luncheon. The Foundation will also provide an update for members about our Disaster Relief program, “A Helping Hand,” the Legacy Campaign and the Lehr-Pritchard Endowment Fund.

It is common for individuals, districts and local units to present gifts to the Foundation in honor or in memory of someone at the end of the luncheon. If you are attending the luncheon and would like to make a donation, you may complete a form to include a personal message. Forms will be available on your table or in The Ledger, our monthly e-newsletter, and can be downloaded here: Luncheon Donation Card.

TRTF will host a training session on April 9 at 2:00 p.m. in the San Lorenzo room on the third floor. It is recommended that Local Unit Foundation Representatives and District Foundation Liaisons join the session. Understanding the roles of Liaisons and Representatives, fundraising, and program implementation will be discussed. See you there!
