Luke Kline's Fundraising Page
"As a Texas Longhorn, and a member of the Alzheimer's community, I am proud to be serving on the Legacy Council. Help me in the fight against Alzheimer's Disease!"
Luke currently lives in Dallas and works at Mill Creek Residential Trust, a multifamily real estate group. A graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, Mr. Kline earned a B.B.A. in finance from the McCombs School of Business. Luke joined the Legacy Council for the Darrell K. Royal Research Fund for Alzheimer's Disease in 2014 for his father, George Kline, who was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's in early 2013. He is currently serving on the Leadership Committee. In addition, Luke is a member of the Advisory Board for the Think Ahead Group which benefits the Center for BrainHealth in Dallas.
George Kline grew up in Fort Worth, TX and played soccer at Menlo College before completing a degree in economics at Austin College. George’s first job out of college was as a road manager for Kris Kristofferson, which he did for two years, traveling the world. He eventually returned to Texas and moved to Dallas to work in television for KERA on a new show called Saturday Night Opry (which would eventually become the famed Austin City Limits). It was during this period that he met his wife, Kristin, a UT alum and diehard Longhorns fan. They were married in 1977. In 1981, George struck out on his own starting The George Kline Company. For the next 20 years, George built a successful television production company and raised three children: Amanda, Willie, and Luke. Following this, George worked in wealth management before retiring in 2013. George is now a grandfather to four: Jasper, Isabella, Thomas, and Russell. He lives in a memory care facility in Dallas where all of his daily needs are handled by a kind and professional staff.
Luke has felt first-hand the devastation this disease has caused his family and is determined to do everything he can to help win the fight against brain disease.
