Last week I was honored to be present for a wonderful evening at the Cosmos Club in NW, DC. The campaign for TCU is a campaign run by TCU to raise money for financial aid and scholarships. Here is a little blurb from their website describing the campaign;
“Through Vision in Action, TCU’s most recent strategic planning effort, Trustees, faculty, staff, students, alumni and parents have charted the University’s future. We are creating a world-class, values-centered university experience for our students. Such educational excellence comes with a high price tag. Consequently, the University is embarking upon its most ambitious comprehensive fund-raising campaign, with a goal of $250 million.”
The event was help at the Cosmos Club in Washington, DC and that place is freakin’ amazing! Inside and out it is just a beautiful place. I was treated to a wonderful meal as well as some outstanding music by TCU’s cello professor Jesus Castro-Balbi and TCU’s piano professor Gloria Lin. The main portion of the event was a discussion which was moderated by TCU alum and CBS News super-star Bob Schieffer!
How awesome is this place?!
