NEXT EVENT SEATING CHART:

40th Rice-University of Houston Bayou Bucket Luncheon, presented by H-E-B

Please check back for updates, as seating is subject to change. We will have a food drive to benefit the Houston Food Bank. Please bring non-perishables.

noon,  Thurs., Sept. 9, 2021
Bayou City Event Center, 9401 Knight Road at Holmes Street

 

Proceed to your table, as there is no need to check in. If you have not prepaid, there is a will-call table at the event where you can pay for your seats.

Please feel free to bring items for the Houston Food Bank.

We will social distance per CDC Guidelines with five people per table. In the past, people sat 10 to a table. This year, a group of 10 people will social distance by sitting five people at two tables. In other words, this year a full table of 10 seats equals five people sitting at two tables. Participants are asked to wear masks until they reach their table.

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 seat, we need you to pay for it or we will lose money.

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.

COMMUNITY SERVICE PROJECTS:
We have put more than $220,000 worth of weights and weight equipment into 47 Greater Houston high schools since 2002.

We have awarded approximately $225,000 in scholarships to approximately 315 kids since 2000.

We have teamed up with the Houston Texans to distribute excess cleats and tennis shoes to needy area high schools. The Texans also underwrote our Weight Room Program in 2020.

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 900 kids have landed about $900 million in NAIA, NCAA Division II and NCAA Division III scholastic aid since 2011 of the highly successful event.
