Tacos + Beer = $90,000 in Scholarships!
Savory tacos from some of Houston’s best-loved eateries, coupled with world-class beer courtesy of Texas’ oldest craft brewery, amounted to a huge boost for UST scholarships! Two Saints and a Taco Tasting
, UST’s popular annual alumni event, was held April 23 and raised more than $90,000 for the Alumni Association Scholarship fund --the most ever for this event. That amounts to a 78% growth from the previous year!
Held for the fourth year in a row at Saint Arnold Brewing Company, Two Saints was attended by a capacity crowd of more than 500 alumni and friends. UST extends a heartfelt thanks to this year’s participating restaurants for sharing their fabulous fare: 100% Taquito, Bourbon & Bacon, Los Cucos, Skinny Rita’s Grill, Torchy’s Tacos, Saint Arnold, Escalante’s, El Tiempo Cantina, Hearsay Gastro Lounge and Red Ox Bar & Grill. Congratulations to Skinny Rita’s, winner of the Judge’s Choice Award, and to Bourbon & Bacon, winner of the People’s Choice Award.
Thanks to all who supported the event, including the Two Saints committee, led by UST alums Joe and Kathy Ridley ’69/’69, and lead sponsor Michael Fleming & Associates. Your contributions provide life-changing scholarships for our students!
