Row for Dough 2017

This fall, Texas A&M Crew is hosting their Row for Dough event, their main fundraiser for the semester. In this event, the team will be put into their racing lineups and row for 60 minutes. This year, Row for Dough is Saturday, November 18th. Parents, donors and companies will choose a boat or rower to sponsor with a money pledge per one kilometer that that rower or boat completes in the 60-minute timeframe. Most crew boats will complete about 10-12 kilometers in one hour, depending on their speed. This is a great opportunity for parents, alumni and friends to show their support for the team!

Texas A&M Crew is entirely supported through funds from team membership dues and donations. Our plan for the upcoming year is to raise enough money to do serious repairs on one of our eights, as well as do various repairs on other older boats, their equipment, and our boathouse. With our hard-working team, having as many boats up and running as possible is essential to the development, growth, and competitive abilities of the group.

If you are interested in pledging money to this fundraiser, please send an email to: fundraising@crew.tamu.edu with 1) the name of the rower or the boat you want to sponsor, 2) how much money you are willing to pledge per 1k completed, 3) how you plan on paying (cash or check).

Thank you so much for being part of the Texas A&M Crew family!

Row for Dough 2016

Howdy friends, family and alumni of Texas A&M Crew! 

I hope you are all well and have been having a great year so far. If you haven't received an email from me before, my name is Kassie Stagner and I am the External Relations Officer for Texas A&M Crew this year. I am looking forward to interacting and possibly meeting all of you! 

This post is mainly focused on our Row for Dough fundraiser coming up in a few weeks on October 15th. While the main idea of the fundraiser is outlined in the information sheet attached below, I will give you a brief synopsis of how it works. 

Basically what we will do is we will go out to Lake Bryan on that Saturday morning and row for an hour on the water. For each 1K completed, a monetary donation of your choosing will be made on your behalf. For those that are not aware, in an hour a crew boat can usually complete about a 10-12K meter piece, so if you are interesting in pledging, please keep this in mind! 

Below I have attached the information form and the pledge form. This will also be posted on our Facebook page, our website, and sent out to our rowers. If you have any questions about this form, please contact me individually at fundraising@crew.tamu.edu.

This is our main fundraiser of the year, so please help spread the word! We are looking to use the money that we receive from this fundraiser on boat repairs, buying needed equipment, and maintaining and improving our boathouse.

Please contact me if you are considering pledging money to our cause and I will help you get set up, or if you have any questions concerning this event, as well as any other problems or questions you have with Crew and I can try to help you get those sorted out! I hope to be in contact with some of you soon!

As always, thank you so much for your continual support to our team. We could not do it without you!
