Front Row 2017 with Verne Lundquist and Ben Crenshaw

Ben Crenshaw, one of the most talented and popular golfers of the last century, will share the stage with CBS-TV sportscaster and TLU alumnus and regent, Verne Lundquist at the 14th annual Front Row gala. As is the Front Row tradition, Lundquist will conduct a live, on-stage interview with Crenshaw—who got his start in Austin—about his long career on and off the course. The evening includes a reception, an elegant dinner, and live auction with autographed sports memorabilia and other amazing items. Always charismatic and charming, Crenshaw will be sure to make this an unforgettable evening.

Front Row is an annual fundraising gala benefitting TLU’s 18 NCAA Division III intercollegiate athletics teams. Since its inception in 2004, the event has raised more than $900,000.
