Children’s charities gain from all-star effort
Houston celebrities Tracy McGrady and Mary Lou Retton have thrown in their hats to help the All-Star Miracle Homeª of Houston. Appearing at functions and in marketing campaigns, these heavy hitters will serve as spokespeople for this $2 million fundraiser for the Children’s Miracle Network of Greater Houston and the Houston Rockets’ Clutch City Foundation.
With two worthy charities benefiting from the All-Star Miracle Home, Retton and McGrady are happy to be the stars supporting the fundraiser. Helping families with sick young ones, Children’s Miracle Network supplies financial support to families who cannot afford medical costs. In fact, the Houston organization was able to help 15,000 children with $21 million in 2005. Assisting a number of community outreach and charity programs, the Clutch City Foundation strives to provide hope to those who might be overlooked if not.
Open to the public for tours, the All-Star Miracle Home is located in the Spice Ridge neighborhood of Sienna Plantation in Missouri City. Fully furnished, this 4,100-square-foot home will feature four bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, a media and game room, as well as a custom pool and landscaping.
Built and donated by Meritage Homes and its partners, the general public is encouraged to buy $100 entries to win the home. With only 20,000 entries available, the chances of winning the All-Star Miracle Home are high – and the chances of helping children along the way are definite. Purchase tickets for the home at 1 (866) 616-2244 or www.allstarmiraclehome.com/houston.
