Chris’s father, Gary Kappmeyer, taught him that you get back as much as you give back. With that mission in mind, Chris champions several charities around the nation. Due to his decades of involvement with Scouting and Saint John Neumann’s Catholic Church, he avidly supports Boy Scouts of America and Girl Scouts of America, Mobile Loaves and Fishes, Legatus of Austin and several other Catholic charities. Chris enjoys giving back to the Boy Scouts of America and is a local founding Scout Master for Troop 990, the Westlake Boy Scouts troop at Saint John Neumann’s. “I’m particularly passionate about the Urban Youth Initiative we’ve started in East Austin,” he says. “We’re giving kids options that they might not have had otherwise. We’re changing hearts and minds, one Scout at time. I’m a witness of this work by helping lead these smart kids to a great future and where they can become a valuable member of society, where had they not had Scouting, might have not been given very many positive choices.“ Chris further helps fund some of these great organizations with his annual fishing tournament, the Boo Ray Bay Fishing Classic. This tournament, begun as a friend’s trip in the 2000’s, has now grown its ranks and raised tens of thousands of dollars for Chris’s favorite charities.
