Annual Costco Shopping spree

This year our organization was delighted to take single father families from Miller Intermediate on our annual Costco Shopping spree. As always we like to thank the whole crew at Costco and all of our celebrity athletes who came out to shop with the fathers and their families. We salute our fathers who don’t always get the recognition they deserve!

M. D. Anderson YMCA visits the Houston Symphony

How the Grinch Stole Christmas was a fantastic way for the Chester Pitts Charitable Foundation to end the 2013 year. We had a blast taking elementary aged children from the M.D Anderson YMCA branch to the Houston Symphony to see Dr. Suess’ classic story. Thank you to our friends at Macy’s and SuitMart for helping us dress up the children in suits and dresses. They all had a wonderful time picking out their outfits at the stores and looking their best on the day of the concert.

The children loved the concert and enjoyed signing along to songs with the audience. After the performance the Houston Symphony treated the kids to craft stations, cookies and punch and best of all a meet and greet with the Grinch himself!

Yes Prep West at the Houston Symphony

What’s a great way to kick of the fall school year? How about taking Yes Prep students to a symphonic experience at that Houston Symphony. The young teens were in awe watching the cirque artists perform to the sounds of lively symphony music. The youth were treated to a meet and greet with the performers and the conductor after the concert and all of them had an unforgettable experience.

Our 2nd annual ‘Tee It Up For the Arts’ celebrity golf tournament was a success this year!  We experienced great weather for golfing and a few of the celebrities seen on the green were Andre Johnson, Jonathan Joseph, Brian Ching, Kareem Jackson, Caleen Carr and Paul Wall. The funds we raised from this event will send some of our underprivileged youth to experience the Houston Symphony for the very first time as well as other foundation programs and scholarships geared towards fine arts and culture.  We like to say a big thank you to all of our sponsors and supporters of this event.  We look forward  to doing it again next year!
