Proceed straight to your table if you have received your tickets, as there is no need to check in. We have large crowds, and we don't want to start the event late due to long lines. If you have not prepaid, there is a will-call table at the event where you can pick up and pay for your seats.  We use assigned seating.  All tables have a sign with your name and/or your entity's name, how many seats you have at your table, and the table number. Please know that if you order a ticket, we need you to pay for it or we will lose money.

Thanks for buying tickets to our luncheons/dinners. Here are some frequently asked questions and their answers that we hop will make the event more enjoyable.

PARKING: There is free parking underneath the hotel. Enter the underground parking lot from Sage Street. Take a ticket at the entrance gate, enter and park. When you leave, the arm on the exit gate should be up. If it is not, push the button and tell them you are with the Touchdown Club.

DRESS: We ask that all who sit at the head table wear a coat and tie. People in the audience wear business to business-casual.
A lot of our female guests bring a jacket to be comfortable at our events, as the temperature is around 70-72 degrees.

ARRIVAL: Please try to arrive early, as we tend to have large events and we cannot start on time if everyone arrives at the same time.

MORE TICKETS: To buy more tickets, please e-mail, or call Neal Farmer at 713-849-9860. The hotel wants to have our seating order at least three days in advance.

LOCATION: The hotel is at the corner of Westheimer and Sage in the Galleria.

TOUCHDOWN CLUB OF HOUSTON: We are the Houston chapter of the National Football Foundation. The NFF – among other things – runs the College Football Hall of Fame and gives scholarships to undergraduates and graduates in colleges. We are non-denominational, in that we don’t solely support one team. Our purpose is to assist kids in Greater Houston. Please check our website for updates to our future events. The best way to help us is to attend our events.

We have put almost $195,000 worth of weights and weight equipment into 39 Greater Houston high schools in 14 years.

We have awarded approximately $190,000 in scholarships in the past 16 years to approximately 250 kids from Greater Houston.

We have teamed up with the Houston Texans’ Sean Washington, the director of player development, to distribute excess cleats and tennis shoes to needy area high schools.

We teamed up with event founders Phil Camp and counselor Coby Rhoden, as well as HISD and the Houston Texans, for a Senior Showcase college tryout at the Texans’ Methodist Practice Facility. More than 800 kids have landed about $80 million in NAIA, NCAA Division II and NCAA Division III scholastic aid in the first eight years of the highly successful event.
