In case you didn’t have a chance to join us at the Charity Classic or you just want to relive some of the memories of the fun we all had that day, check out this highlight reel of photos and video courtesy of KHOU.com.
As reported in the following Click2Houston.com article, JJ Watt’s inaugural Charity Classic softball game filled Constellation Field to capacity, with thousands of fans coming out to cheer on their favorite Texans players and raise over $300,000 in the process. The event was an overwhelming success. “Couldn’t have scripted it any better,” said JJ. “Couldn’t have asked for a better crowd, better players, better product on the field.”
Thanks to CBS Houston, who caught up with JJ prior to his taking to the baseball field to play a friendly game of charity softball with his fellow Texans, to talk about the event. You can watch the press conference here.
And the crowd goes wild! Defense takes the game with a final score: 19-18! Thank you to all the players, sponsors, and fans who came out to make our first ever J.J. Watt Charity Classic such a huge success! Together we raised $330,000 that will go towards supporting after school programs and ensure every kid has the chance to dream big and the means to work hard to accomplish them!
As the Ultimate Texans reported, even while gearing up for the Charity Classic fundraiser coming up on April 27, JJ Watt and the Foundation still found time to make use of the funds they already do have, stopping by KIPP Spirit and KIPP Liberation College Preparatory Schools to donate $60,000.
