A Message from the Tiger Club of Kansas City Board of Directors
We are deeply saddened by the news that Gary Pinkel will be stepping down as Mizzou’s head football coach at the end of the season. Coach Pinkel has been extremely supportive of the Tiger Club of Kansas City during his legendary career at Mizzou contributing regularly to our weekly lunches, supporting our fundraising efforts, and joining us as our special guest each year at our golf tournament. We wish him and his family only the best as he moves forward. Thank you, Coach Pinkel, for all you have done for Mizzou, Kansas City, and the Tiger Club of Kansas City.
MIZZOU Comes to Kansas City
Tickets for the 2015 CBE Hall of Fame Classic, which features Missouri and Kansas State, are on sale. The four-team tournament, which also includes North Carolina and Northwestern, is set for Nov. 23-24 at the Sprint Center.
Tickets are available through the Sprint Center.
Tiger Club of Kansas City is proud to support the University of Missouri Athletic Department and Tiger fans in the Kansas City metro area.
In addition to hosting regular weekly lunches during football and basketball season, the Tiger Club hosts special events throughout the year to bring MIZZOU fans in the Kansas City metro together to celebrate being a Tiger. Our annual events include a Golf Tournament in June featuring celebrities from the MU Athletic Department and former players. Past guests include Head Coaches Gary Pinkel and Kim Anderson along with members of their staffs. In August, we host the SEC Block Party. MIZZOU alumni along with alumni groups from other SEC Schools are part of the event hosted in the Power & Light District. New in 2014 we initiated the Power Hour Happy Hour event. A celebrity bartender entertains and offers insight into MIZZOU sports. Several Power Hour events are scheduled during the year. The Tiger Club has also hosted trips to away regular season football games, the 2014 Cotton Bowl and rallies scheduled around sports events scheduled in Kansas City. The Tiger Club is a totally volunteer organization.
Thanks to all who have joined or renewed their 2015 membership.
