Our first annual Charity Classic was a grand slam, raising over $300,000 to support the foundation’s mission of providing after-school athletic programs for children in the community. Thank you HoustonTexas.com for capturing some of the magical moments and memories of that day here.
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.”
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!
