Chicago Local 134 invites all Red Stars fans to the tailgate in the North Lot of Toyota Park this Sunday @ 3:00pm. Instead of providing food, Local 134 asks that you bring something to share. All money that would have been used to purchase food will instead be donated to the Houston Dash Harvey Relief Fund in honor of the Dash SG, Bayou City Republic.
Dash player Janine Beckie set up the fundraiser with the following note:
My name is Janine Beckie and I am proud to represent Houston as a member of the Houston Dash, Hurricane Harvey has devastated Houston and South East Texas over the last three days and will continue to have a lasting impact on our community, time is of the essence for the people of Houston that find themselves caught in this disaster. As athletes we have an opportunity to mobilize our resources, contacts, family, and friends to come together and model the most basic obligation we have as human beings: to take care of one another. These are our people, this is our city, this is our home.
Please donate, something small, something large, your generosity will make the difference as we begin to find our city again, one step at a time.
Please speed the word and share our link with the hashtag #HoustonStrong
100% of funds raised will go straight to the Hurricane Harvery Relief Fund created by Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner patnering with the Greater Houston Community Foundation. This money will provide the most pressing needs for Houstonians.
Thank you everyone for your generosity and love! Come together, we are #HoustonStrong.
