The 2nd annual TCRP Summer Bash was an incredible success!

We had 413 guests (!) attend this special event, held at the beautiful TDS Exotic Game Ranch. I want to personally thank the Gregory family for their tremendous generosity.

Our headliner, bestselling author and filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza gave a captivating and fascinating speech and received a long and enthusiastic standing ovation when he finished. He then graciously stayed to personalize the 140 books that we sold to our guests.
