The organization and planning of the annual Texas Rugby Union Hall of Fame Banquet is undertaken diligently by our dedicated TRU staff and volunteers. This annual gathering continues to elevate in prestige with each passing year. As you may understand, orchestrating such an event comes with inherent costs that are not entirely offset by ticket sales.

We highly value the opportunity to assemble as a Hall of Fame community, celebrate our camaraderie, and honor the new HOF members for their notable achievements and contributions to Rugby. However, it’s crucial to us that the associated expenses of the event, such as complimentary tickets for honorees, awards like plaques, apparel, medals, and other keepsakes, as well as amenities like the audio/visual system that uplifts the banquet experience, aren’t funded through the dues of TRU members.

If you’re inclined to assist in covering the banquet’s overhead, we kindly invite you to consider making a donation. These funds will primarily be utilized towards defraying the costs of awards and other related items. If your circumstances prevent you from attending, a donation equivalent to a ticket’s cost could be provided to an honoree or their spouse. Alternatively, any contribution to counterbalance the cost of the awards will be deeply appreciated.
