The Board of the Clay Eichler Memorial Fund is proud to announce the recipient of this benefit is TAMU-T, thus allowing students the opportunity to receive a local education at a great university. His parents said, "As parents, we believe this would please Clay, a proud Aggie himself."

About The Benefit

After the tragic death of their son Clay, Gail and Ed Eichler wanted to create an event to honor their son's memory and give back to the community that has been so gracious to them during their loss and pain. The Clay Eichler Memorial Fund was created and is a nonprofit tax exempt organization. Recipients of future benefits will be chosen by the Board through applications submitted each year from local charity organizations providing the greatest impact in our community and in need of financial support.
