The event was a huge success and sold over 850 bbq plate tickets! The plate sales from the annual Spring BBQ benefit The Arc of the Capital Area. The Cowboys’ utmost goal is to provide service to the University, our surrounding community, and the great state of Texas.  The Arc is a nonprofit organization founded in 1949 to support children with mental disabilities.  For the past 60 years, The Arc has played an essential role in addressing the issues that affect individuals with mental retardation and developmental disabilities.
