J.J. Watt Announces 1st Annual J.J. Watt Charity Classic in Texas to Benefit the Justin J Watt Foundation
The Justin J. Watt Foundation is excited to announce the launch of the J.J. Watt Charity Classic in Texas to benefit the Justin J Watt Foundation.
The event will be held on Saturday, April 27, 2013, at Constellation Field in Sugar Land, Texas, a suburb of Houston, Texas. Events will kick off at noon with a home run derby followed by the softball game (two hour time limit). Defensive and offensive players from Watt’s NFL team, the Houston Texans, will compete on opposing teams during a seven-inning game.
Tickets for the event will go on sale on March 15th at 9 a.m. both at the Constellation Field box office and online www.sugarlandskeeters.com.
In addition, the event will feature a silent auction with items such as autographed apparel, autographed game-day memorabilia and an “experience package” to sit in the dugout during an inning. J.J. Watt merchandise will also be available for sale.
Funds raised will benefit the Justin J Watt Foundation. Our mission is to provide after-school opportunities for children in the community to become involved in athletics, so that they may learn the basic character traits of accountability, teamwork, leadership, work ethic and perseverance while in a safe and supervised environment with their peers.
“The Justin J Watt Foundation encourages children to dream big and work hard,” says J.J. Watt. “We hope to provide the motivation and means to turn those big dreams and hard work into something incredible.”
Volunteers for the event have been finalized. Media requests or sponsorship information is available through Capture Marketing firstname.lastname@example.org or 262.696.5177.
We look forward to seeing you there!
