Houston Astros Flood Refeif Efforts 5/29-6/4

Dear Group Leader,

Please feel free to inform the members of your upcoming event the following information should they choose to participate.

The Astros and the Astros Foundation are hosting a food drive supporting the Houston Food Bank during the Chicago White Sox and Baltimore Orioles series.  Fans can participate by bringing canned goods or other non-perishable food items with them to the games and they will be collected at the entrance gates, starting  2 hours before game time until the end of the 1st inning. Monetary donations will also be accepted.

 

The Astros Foundation will also host a raffle during both series with great prizes like tickets to Picnic in the Park, game used and autographed memorabilia.  Raffle tickets will be available for $5 each or 5 tickets for $20 at collection points.  Mystery Grab Bags will also be available on Friday, May 29 and Saturday, May 30 for a $25 donation at the Astros Community Clubhouse located near section 108/109 on the main concourse.  All proceeds benefit the Houston Food Bank.
