Dripping Springs LC - Leads the Way for CAMPaign Vision2020 & Beyond

Kerrville, TX - February 21, 2020.  During the February 2020 Board Breakfast, Stephen S. Mabry, President & CEO of TLC, addressed the Board of Directors and prominently featured the results of the Feasibility Study and architectural plans for TLC's future. Immediately following his report and request that the Board officially take action to open a Capital CAMPaign known as Vision2020 & Beyond, the Dripping Spring Lions Club stepped forward and surprised and delighted all in attendance by presenting a $100,000 pledge to TLC to kick-off the CAMPaign.

According to Dripping Springs Lions Club President, Lion Doug Marsh, "the Dripping Springs Lions Club has been working for sometime to make this gift to TLC a reality as we definitely wanted to be apart of the new CAMPaign in a BIG Way! All of us in Dripping Springs are thrilled to be able to make this Leadership Gift at this time to demonstrate our commitment and belief in the future of TLC."
"The timing, material sum and heart behind this lead gift could not have come at a better time. To have just asked the Board of Directors to open a campaign - and then to have the Lions of Dripping Springs demonstrate immediately their belief in our plans - sets the appropriate tone and pace for the rest of the State to now follow. In the coming months and years, we will each have an opportunity to weigh our own commitment to this effort and decide how to respond to the challenge that lies before us. Whatever that financial commitment might ultimately come to mean, it will be borne from each of us doing our part", said Stephen Mabry.
Stephen went on to add, "My admiration and gratitude goes out to each member of the Dripping Springs Lions Club for their gift and for propelling TLC forward in its quest to prepare to receive future generations of Texas Children. Thousands of Texas Children depend on the services offered through Texas Lions Camp, some of whom have yet to be born."
