Duke Carrillo Foundation Second Annual “Live Like Duke” Benefit

November 19, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 10:30 pm CST


Duke Carrillo Foundation Second Annual “Live Like Duke” Benefit

Please join us for a night of dinner, dancing and live music featuring Breckenridge Band at the Second Annual “Live Like Duke” Benefit.


The Duke Carrillo Foundation looks forward to seeing you at the Second Annual “Live Like Duke” Benefit on Saturday, November 19, 2022 from 6:30 p.m. -10:30 p.m. at Circle R Ranch, Flower Mound, Texas. Please wear your favorite western attire and enjoy a fun night of live music by the Breckenridge Band, BBQ, drinks and dancing while supporting Duke’s enduring legacy of academic excellence and service to his country. The benefit will feature a silent auction with a wide variety of exciting merchandise and services, so come prepared to bid! Cash, checks and credit cards will be accepted for auction items. Proceeds from the event will go directly to “Live Like Duke” scholarships for college-bound seniors with a family history of military service, and to the Duke Carrillo Scholars Fund at the United States Naval Academy.

Duke Carrillo was raised in Flower Mound, Texas and was a midshipman at the United States Naval Academy. He passed away suddenly and unexpectedly during training exercises at the USNA in February, 2020. Duke was an exceptional student who was pursuing a degree in quantitative economics with the goal of becoming a naval aviator. The Duke Carrillo Foundation was established to honor Duke’s legacy of academic excellence, service to community and country, and commitment to athletics; in other words, what it means to “Live Like Duke.” Accordingly, the Foundation has awarded six scholarships to college-bound seniors from the class of 2022 at Duke’s alma mater, Flower Mound High School. In addition, the Foundation is funding the Duke Carrillo Scholars Fund at the United States Naval Academy to allow current midshipmen the opportunity to participate in leadership enrichment experiences. We are working on pursuing partnerships with other organizations that will offer men and women specific scholarships related to careers in aviation.
