What’s Up at KOPR?

Kick Off to Fall at KOPR

Cooler weather is just around the corner—thankfully! and all of us at KOPR are ready for fall activities! The season promises to be action-packed in our hometown of Austin, TX. UT Football, ACL Music Festival, and the Texas Book Festival, are just a few popular favorites.

Before we dive into these great Fall events, we wanted to share some highlights from summer!

Our client St. David’s Foundation awarded 53 Neal Kocurek Scholarships to Central Texas area high school graduates who are pursuing healthcare professions. The scholarship fund’s namesake, Neal Kocurek, was the longtime CEO of the Foundation, and an advisor to many educators here in our area. Scholarship recipients will receive up to $7,500 per year for four years, as well as funding for graduate studies and medical school at Texas universities. Congratulations to all of the winners!

Summer isn’t officially over until we experience Central Market’s annual Hatch Fest! Austinites visited both CM locations from Aug. 10 – 23 to grab plenty of the popular New Mexico-sourced pepper. Meats, salsas and bakery treats were just a few of the Hatch-chile dishes we savored during this must-do event.   We can’t wait to see what Central Market unveils to tempt our taste buds this Fall!

Twenty-six—Thirty—Hike! As we bid goodbye to summer, we say hello to Longhorn football season! Longhorn Network, ESPN’s 24-hour All Things UT network, is gearing up for its sixth season of covering Texas football. This year there’ll be a new presence on the field at DKR—BEVO XV will debut at the first home game and will attend all home games this fall. Welcome, BEVO XV!

We hope to see all of you out and about, enjoying all that Fall has to offer!

All the best,

Everyone at KOPR
