The end of the year always fills me with childlike wonders. The magic of twinkle lights on the houses in the neighborhood, the cheerful music blaring over the speakers in the stores and the joy on the faces of my family and close friends. This year has been amazing!

The OU Club of Collin County had one of it’s best years and we couldn’t have done it without you. We meet so many new friends and reconnected with others. We settled in to our new home at Henderson Kitchen and Tap in McKinney and thanks to a very generous anonymous donor, we able to give away incredible prizes every game!

But we’re not done yet! We have some exciting things planned for the spring! We are going to kick off basketball season by watching a bunch of the Saturday games at Henderson Kitchen! Our annual scholarship golf tournament is Monday, April 23, 2018 and sign ups are starting now. And of course, we have plans to give away some pretty big scholarships this year. AND our football team is in the playoffs, which means we have more football to watch!

This is also this time of year that we want to thank you for everything you do for us. To all of you who joined or rejoined the OU Club, came to an event, bought a t-shirt or raffle ticket, sent encouraging e-mails, followed us online, encouraged us to pick star students for our scholarships, volunteered your time and your energy, we really couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you for being awesome Sooners!

Like I said, the biggest thing we will do in 2018 will be to award another set of scholarships to deserving students from the area. And we still need your help. There’s still time to make a donation to the OU Club to help enrich one of these student’s lives. All donations are tax deductible and you can do it online by clicking here. Or you can just link your Kroger and Tom Thumb reward cards to our account. Then when you’re buying Santa his cookies and milk, they will donate a few dollars to the Club. It really couldn’t be easier.

We truly hope that this holiday season brings you good times with friends and family as you enjoy the magic of the season. And we hope your new year starts out right, not only with a win over Georgia on New Year’s Day, but when you come hang out with us as we ramp up for OU Basketball! We can’t wait to see you!
