Guests enjoyed views of the Houston skyline at SkyHouse Houston along with wine, beer and hot eats from Frank’s Pizza as SAY (The Stuttering Association for the Young) opened its second season in Houston on May 22, 2016 with a party to kick off the upcoming George Springer All-Star Bowling Benefit.
Noah Cornman, executive director of SAY, expressed his appreciation for southern hospitality and cheered with excitement for the city’s support in spreading awareness for Camp SAY, a life-changing summer camp for young people who stutter.
Guests were encouraged to load up the bases by purchasing sponsorship and benefit tickets and take part in a raffle. Scoring big with the steal was Alder Valdez, the raffle winner of four dugout seat tickets to a Houston Astros game.
George Springer, a celebrated Houston Astros outfielder, is a person who stutters and a spokesperson for Camp SAY. In its inaugural year, Springer hosted the Bowling Benefit to establish the George Springer Kids Fund. All proceeds from the event will send children from families-in-need to the camp.
