A Message from your New Chairman

Rudy Ramirez: 

Brothers I want to thank you all for a great year so far. Without you all, we wouldn’t be able to do all the things we do. The month of October was full of activities. We had another Great Knights Classic Golf Tournament that raised over $12000 for scholarships. We had a number of successful fundraisers including Texas Rangers ALCS and World Series ticket raffles, and football pick ‘em for the first half of the NFL season. We had a great turnout in Houston for our tailgate and soccer game between FC Dallas and the Houston Dynamo. Brotherhood has stepped up big time. We are now in our big philanthropy part of the year with our Thanksgiving food drive in full effect and our Elves Toy drive on the horizon. The year is winding down, but our work is still going strong. Your continued support is greatly appreciated

I hope you can Join us in our continued work for the community !!

In Eternal Brotherhood,
Rudy Ramirez
DFWAA Chairman 2023

FC Dallas VS Houston Dynamos
Kickin' It in Houston: Thank You for the Dynamo Duel!

A massive thank you to all who journeyed to Houston for the FC Dallas vs. Houston Dynamos game! A whopping 78 people, including ODPhi’s DFW, Houston, and Houston KDX AA, made it a phenomenal turnout. Although the game ended in a 1-1 tie, the real victory was the fantastic tailgate and pregame festivities. Your enthusiasm made it an unforgettable experience.
