University of St. Thomas alumnus Michael P. Fleming (’84) and his firm are proud to be the Title Sponsor again at this year’s 5th annual Two Saints and a Taco.
The event was created by the University’s Alumni Board to raise money for the Alumni Association’s Scholarships.
Each year the event gets bigger and has such a loyal following that the huge hall at the Saint Arnold Brewery is at capacity every April. Numerous restaurants in the Houston area participate in this sold-out event. 500 alumni and friends look forward to the festivities every year.
Scholarships Are Important
The cost of a university education is always on the minds of students and their parents and scholarships play an
important part in assisting families with financing an education. The money raised at Two Saints and a Taco
will allow the Alumni Association to continue to fund their awards for sophomores and juniors. In addition to that, the University of St. Thomas has many other scholarship opportunities for freshman and transfer students whether the scholarships are funded through events like this or from outside private sources.
The “Other” Saint, Arnold
Saint Arnold Brewing Company has been the perfect partner for this event, not only for making it “2 Saints” but the location, the large facility and the fantastic beer. As in years past there will be a number of restaurants putting their best “taco” forward in a competition, including the culinary experts in Saint Arnold’s pub kitchen.
5 O’Clock Pils, the latest creation from the brewers, will make its first appearance giving taco tasters a chance to tame the spicy flavors that can accompany some of the entries.
