We would like to invite you to join us in the honor of presenting this event through your support as a sponsor. The continuous generosity of our sponsors has helped us to grow this event and increase the number of students who will benefit from the Alumni Association Scholarships. As a result of the 2015 event, the Alumni Association was able to award over $70,000 in scholarships to deserving students at the University of St. Thomas! In addition to raising scholarship funds for current students, Two Saints and a Taco Tasting strengthens involvement between the community and alumni.

This year, our goal is to raise $80,000 to award next fall, and we would like to invite you to help us reach this goal! As a contributor in this project, you would receive the benefits associated with your support level as listed in the Sponsor Packet. Please contact Hank Emery, Director of Alumni Relations, at 713-525-3111 or alumni@stthom.edu if you have any questions.
