Houston, Tx (PRWEB) August 12, 2014
The Houston Chivers proudly announced totals over $22,500 raised at their Bona Fide Meetup and Costume Battle benefiting the Jamie's Hope Foundation on May 24th. Scotty’s Pub at 10943 Scarsdale Blvd hosted a Bill Murray themed costume party, raffle and silent auction that was one for the record books! Chivers came from near and far to celebrate and support Jamie’s Hope in their mission to fund targeted therapy research at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center while supporting the Houston community and helping those directly affected by cancer.
As the Fireball was flowing, Chivers bid on a wealth of items donated by local businesses and artists. The Houston Rockets' Power Dancers were on hand to pose with the Chivers and sign autographs. Monster Energy Drink provided guests with all the energy needed to dance the night away. The raffle, silent auction, and t-shirt sales were a huge hit, bringing in a record-breaking $22,500 in total for the event.
Playing major roles in the success of the event were Houston Chivers administrators Jennifer Matte and Stephanie Fluharty, with supervisors Shawn Demaree, Beau Frederic, Dan Grant and Mike Standley leading a team of dedicated volunteers.
