Capital City A&M Club’s 2017 Coach’s Night event will include guest speaker Kevin Sumlin, head coach of the Texas A&M University football team.

The June 15 event is the biggest fundraiser of the year for the Central Texas Aggies organization.

“Our mission and passion is to provide scholarships to outstanding Central Texas high school students attending Texas A&M University,” said Amy Morris, 2017 Coach’s Night co-chair, in a statement. “Over the past 25 years, we have awarded over $1.27 million in scholarships to area youth thanks to the generosity of our amazing members and donors.”

Sumlin’s program starts at 7 p.m. in the H-E-B Center at Cedar Park, 2100 Avenue of the Stars, and will include live music, a barbecue dinner provided by RS3, visits with Reveille and the Yell Leaders as well as a live and silent auction. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.

Sumlin is expected to discuss Aggie football and the Southeastern Conference.

“Kyle Field is now the premier college football stadium, and we anxiously await Coach Sumlin’s assessment regarding the 2017 season and the next crop of playmakers that he has recruited,” Morris said.

During the event, there also will be updates from The Association of Former Students and the 12th Man Foundation.

Tickets are $40 for adults and $20 for children ages 2 to 12 years old. Parking is free.
