The Board of the Clay Eichler Memorial Fund is proud to announce it will provide seed money to establish the ArkLaTex 100 Club, Inc. in our community. The sole purpose of the ArkLaTex 100 Club , Inc. is to benefit our local police and firefighters on both sides of the State Line. The primary goal of this new 100 Club is to raise funds for the dependents of our first responders lost in the line of duty. Any remaining funds will be used to purchase any unbudgeted but necessary life-saving equipment and additional safety training. Now, more than ever, is the time to stand behind these brave men and women who risk their lives each day when they go to work. There is not another organization in our region that provides these services to our area’s first responders and their families. The ArkLaTex 100 Club, Inc. is closely patterned after the 100 Club of Houston, which has been an overwhelming local success for more than sixty years (the100club.org).
The Board has received enthusiastic support for this endeavor from the local Chiefs of the four Police and Fire Departments. We also have the support of the community leaders and have received pledges from past benefactors. The Board pledges to remain excellent stewards of all donations and money raised for this charity and any chosen the past or future.
The Third Annual “Clay’s Golf and Guitars” is scheduled for Saturday May 20, 2017. The Golf Scramble will be at the Northridge Country Club. The band will be announced as soon as a final confirmation is made. With your continued generous support, we know this next annual event will be even more successful, memorable and fun for everyone.
We cherish your support in honoring our son’s memory and in realizing the ultimate goal of making our community ever stronger and safer for all.
With our gratitude,
Gail and Ed Eichler
