It’s an all-you-can-eat affair at The Heights Lodge, 4115 Washington Ave, on Saturday, May 3, 2014, from 1-5pm. Join your friends (and your friend's friends!) for crawfish, drink specials, appetizers, volleyball, and music. It promises to be a great time at a great location.

Recovery Efforts Continue In The Aftermath Of Devastating Oklahoma Tornadoes


Almost nine months have passed since a series of devastating tornadoes ripped through the middle of Oklahoma and the hearts of Oklahomans. In Moore, work continues to help people affected by the storm. The OU Club of Houston along with the Houston chapter of Texas Exes raised more than $7,500 to support the recovery and contributed that money to the United Methodist Disaster Response Program which has become the lead organization in continuing to offer help and hope.

Find out how your contribution continues to provide assistance to our fellow Oklahomans in need. And visit our Club Website and Facebook page to learn how you'll soon be able to provide hands-on support for those in need right here in our own Houston communities.
