Leadership Corpus Christi Alumni

Hello Neighbor,

It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood.

A beautiful day for a Roast!

It’s a beautiful day to be roasted... won’t you come?

Since we are together, we might as well say...

Why we love our community's best neighbor, Casey Lain, LCC Class 38.

Corpus Christi has no better advocate for its community neighborhood — downtown — than Casey Lain.

Enjoy an evening with LCC graduates Omar Lopez (Class 34), Heidi Hovda (Class 44), Kenny Erben (Class 44) and community leaders Brad Lomax and Tina Lain as Casey is honored ... by lighting his butt on fire!

End the night with one final, ultimate roast of Casey Lain. This is the down and dirty roast from the insiders that know how to spill the tea. From employees to old-school Corpitos musicians ... the fire blazes at the House of Rock After Party.

This is a special, add-on event to give space to the community that wants to recognize the incredible path that Casey has forged. His leadership has made an impact on so many people from all walks of life. What better way to end the night than with the folks that have been around Casey before everyone wanted him to run for City Council?!

About the LCCA Roast

The Leadership Corpus Christi Alumni Association Roast was born from a lunch conversation between then LCCA Chair Omar Lopez, and LCC alum Bill Richmond and Jessica Davila-Burnett while brainstorming a way to help the Association increase funding... "We should have a weenie roast!!!" and the rest is history.

In 2009 the LCCA presented their inaugural fundraiser "We Love Bud" – the roast of L. C. (Bud) Harris III, LCC25, and the jabs haven't stopped yet. Year after year, LCCA has honored an association member near and dear to our community by placing them in the hot seat: Chris Adler LCC16 (2010), Dr. Scott Elliff LCC16 (2011), Representative Todd Hunter LCC9 (2012), Mark & Carol Scott LCC17 & LCC16 (2013), Ken Trevino LCC27 (2014), Al Jones LCC6 (2015), Paulette Kluge LCC35 (2016), the duo of Ruben Bonilla LCC1 and Hugo Berlanga LCC3 (2017), the honorable Judge Loyd Neal LCC2 (2018), Catrina Wilson LCC28 (2019), and a virtual roast honoring Debbie Lindsey Opel LCC22 and Leah Pagan Olivarri LCC11 (2020).

LCCA is grateful for the creativity, support, and love poured into the inaugural event by our three initiating alum and is proud to continue the tradition. Omar, Bill, & JDB, thanks for the laughs and for the fantastic means of honoring our beloved members.
