    A Message from your New Chairman

    Rudy Ramirez: 

    Howdy brothers,

    February was a busy month for us. We had great turnouts at each of our membership event and are building momentum here at the beginning of the year.

    Our Membership total is at 78 registered brothers with Delta and Tau leading the charge with 14 members each. Our first fundraiser of the year “Super Bowl Squares” was a big hit. We raised funds to help us with our yearly operations costs and Our second fundraiser starts next week with our March Madness Bracketology. Be on the lookout for the details.

    We have a lot planned for March including our Annual Conejo Picnic which is our first family event of the year. We will have good food, Easter egg hunt, and fun for the whole family. We end the month with a happy hour event in the Colony on the 87th day of the year.

    We hope to see you all at these events and hope you enjoy what this brotherhood is about. Remember to bring a brother back to the DFWAA.


    In All Eternal Brotherhood

    A Message from your New Chairman

    Rudy Ramirez: 

    My name is Rudy Ramirez from Delta Chapter at Texas A&M University. I crossed in 1993 and I am a founding member of DFWAA. I was voted Chairman for 2023 and I want to welcome everybody to the 23rd year of the DFW Alumni Association of Omega Delta Phi. I first want to take some time to thank Mike Dominguez and the board for the last couple of years for the hard work they put in and overcoming the obstacles of the COVID years. Thank you gentlemen.

    This year our focus is BROTHERHOOD. We have many events set up for the year that start with our first in person meeting Jan 11th and our Wing Knight on January 19th. We will have Happy Hours set up throughout the year every 87th day in different locations across the metroplex. We will do our annual school supply drive in August, Thanksgiving Food drive in November, our Elf Toy Drive in December and the 20th Knights Classic Golf tournament in October. There will also be an end of summer bbq/pool party, and other great events that we have planned for the year (be on the lookout for our calendar that will be available soon).

    As we begin the membership drive I’d like to challenge each of you to bring a brother back to the brotherhood. Reach out to your chapter brothers, your crew that you keep in contact with, any brother you know that lives in the DFW and bring them to a happy hour, service event, or meeting. I know y’all are tired of being cooped up the last couple years, what better excuse to get out than going to break bread with your brothers. We have a special gift for the chapter with the most members to sign up (there will be a tracker up on the website), So get to the website and signup and I hope to see your face at our events.

    In All Eternal Brotherhood

    Rudy Ramirez

    DFWAA Chairman



    December Wrap up

    DFWAA Elves Have Done it Again! 

    Thank you to all that donated to our 2022 Elf Toy Drive and for the brothers that came out to help us shop. In addition to a truck full of donation items, we also raised over $1300 to spent on gifts for kids in need. In the end, we racked up a toy receipt taller than 2 Elves! All toys and donations were dropped off at the Children's Advocacy Center of Collin County.

    Check out our Highlight Reel HERE!

    Mike's Farewell

    Chairman's Message: 

    Happy Holidays brothers! 

    As they say,  all good things must come to an end.

    This month's newsletter marks the end of my 2 years as Chairman of the DFWAA! I hope that you all have enjoyed these newsletters, and our event programming over the last two years, as much as I have enjoyed planning them for yall. 

    What will Mike do with all of his new found free time? Well, I do plan to keep involved under whoever takes up the mantle of chairman next year but will step back as Linda and I are planning our wedding late 2023! Woot! 

    This section of the newsletter has always been a cathartic one for me. While I do not know how many of you actually read it in its entirety, if you have found yourself scrolling through, I would like to thank you for taking the time out of your day to check-in with our brotherhood.

    It can be too easy to lose hours running from meeting to meeting, too easy to lose days running the same weekly errands, and all too easy for those lost weeks to turn into months or even years. Do me a favor... Take a deep breath. Enjoy the moment. Maybe send a text to your Big bro, your little bro, chapter bro, or even a friend from your college days. I'll leave it to you to figure out the message. This organization brought us all together for a reason, and I am ever grateful to have you all in my life because of it.

    As always if you need anything, or would just like to chat, feel free to reach out at my contact below.

    Yours in Service and Brotherhood,


    Mike Dominguez

    November Wrap up


    DFWAA Community Raise over $3000 to provide Thanksgiving Meals to families in need! 


    We would like to thank every single person who donated to our annual Thanksgiving Drive this year, which benefitted the students of Dewitt Perry Middle School. Special thanks to brother, Long Le, for spearheading this effort, Billy Macklin for getting us connected with the sponsored school, and Brother Bryan Rodriguez for getting us set up with Kroger and our turkeys for the drive. Many thanks to the administration and staff at Perry MS for facilitating this drive. Thanks to your generosity, we were able to ensure over 25 families were able to celebrate a Thanksgiving feast together. Thank you to all of those who donated time or money to this amazing effort. Happy Thanksgiving to all!!

    The Annual Turkey Bowl Crowns Its 2022 CHAMPION!!!

    Thank you to everyone that was able to come out to our annual Turkey Bowling Tournament in Arlington last month. Brothers, 87 FAM, and DFWAA community members had a great time enjoying Whiskey samples, ZaLat Pizza, and of course getting the chance to compete in our Turkey Bowling Tournament!

    Competition was FIERCE this year, as it all came down to a showdown between defending Champion, Zach "Wreck'n Bowls" Dominguez and Tau brother/event organizer Roy Ferretiz. In a NAIL BITING set of last frames, Roy narrowly picked up a spare to close out his round. Unfortunately for Zach, his hopes of a 2nd year's victory were TARNISHED as he failed to knock down the dreaded 7-10 split.

    Congratulations to our 2022 CHAMPION ROY "Shake-In-Bake" FERRETIZ.

    Chairman's Message: 

    Hello Brothers,

    Happy November to all! Last month we had a great time out at our annual golf tournament. It was awesome getting to see to many familiar faces and to meet some brothers for the first time! I would say it was one of our most diverse alumni attended events that we have hosted in the past couple years. I was glad to see brothers both young and old distinguished hanging out and having a great time out a Irving Golf Club.

    Now that October has passed, we find ourselves entering the end of the year holiday season. Both November and December are the times that we really double down on our mission to help the surrounding DFW with our Annual Turkey Food Drive and our Elf Toy Drive.

    I hope that you all can find it in your hearts to help donate to these great causes, and/or to support us by sharing these events with your friends and family. It is only through you, our readers and dedicated DFW network that we are able to continue to grow these programs year after year. 

    As always if you need anything, or would just like to chat, feel free to reach out at my contact below.

    Yours in Service and Brotherhood,

    October Wrap up


    Another HUGE Success for the Knights Classic Scholarship Golf Tournament Sponsored by Liberty Realty Advisors!

    Click here to see all of our Team photos like the above!

    We cannot thank everyone enough for their support of this year scholarship golf tournament. Thanks to your support we were able to break our previous attendance record of 113 by having a Whopping 126 participants in our 2022 tournament!  Not only that, but thanks to your donations,  next year's scholarships will bring our organization to over $100,000 in college scholarships awarded to college students since 2015!

     Our Knights Classic Tournament has always been one of our stand out events for the DFWAA, and would never have made it this many years without the growing support of our volunteers, our annual sponsors, and the support of brothers and their friends that they bring out to golf each year.

    We would like to give a special shout out to our Title Sponsor, JJ Chapa and Liberty Realty Advisors!. For years JJ and his team have made the annual commitment not only to sponsor this tournament, but to come out as a team to help stuff gift bags, set up registration, taking pictures around the course, and making sure everyone is having a great time. The DFWAA are always greatful to have them come out each year, and we are excited to see the Liberty Realty Group and all of our other participants/ volunteers out on the course next year! 

    The Knights Classic will return on October 6, 2023 Sponsored by Liberty Realty Advisors at the Irving Golf Club. We will be celebrating our 20th Anniversary of the Knights Classic. We encourage everyone to save the date and to register early before we sell out again.


    Thank you to all of our Sponsors this year for your continued support.
