Giving to the United Way improves the community here in Houston. We’re glad Memorial Herman put us in touch with Memorial Credit Union, because we were able to work together to supply a great prize for the auction.
Houston, TX (PRWEB) September 16, 2013
Home Theater Gear is teaming up with Memorial Credit Union and Memorial Hermann Sugar Land Hospital to support the United Way and the greater Houston community. The Houston-based home theater company and Memorial Credit Union collaborated to provide a complete home theater system for the hospital’s annual silent auction.
The hospital will feature the portable indoor/outdoor theater as the grand prize in their silent auction. The prize includes a projector and screen, a Blu-ray player, a complete audio system and convenient carrying cases. It can be easily dismantled and reassembled in virtually any location. In addition to this big ticket item, the hospital will raffle off many other prizes, including $500 and $200 VISA gift cards, and a fifth generation iPod touch. Each department of the hospital prepares a basket of prizes to be raffled. Baskets include anything from Houston Texans merchandise to a weekend for two getaway package.
Visitors can see the theater system on display at the hospital from September 16th to 20th. Bidding starts on the 19th and ends at 2pm on the 20th. The silent auction is part of Memorial Hermann’s annual fundraising campaign. Every year Memorial Herman Sugar Land Hospital mounts an enormous effort to gather sponsors and carry out a powerful fundraising campaign. The money goes to United Way of Greater Houston, an organization that supports Houstonians at all stages of life. Their programs help Houston’s low-income families become stable and strong, so they can pursue a better future.
“We are thrilled to be a part of this great fundraising campaign,” says Home Theater Gear store manager Mark Okelberry. “Giving to the United Way improves the community here in Houston. We’re glad Memorial Herman put us in touch with Memorial Credit Union, because we were able to work together to supply a great prize for the auction.”
