What: The Friends of SpringSpirit “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” Fundraiser

Or: The Memorial area home of Peggy Kostial

PC time: In addition to raising funds for SpringSpirit which serves more than 900 young people in the Spring Branch area, the focus was on the baseball-chic outfits that most of the 150 guests donned. Special among them were the new Houston Astros Space City Jerseyswhich proved to be a multi-million dollar earner for the team, with the new jerseys selling out faster than peanuts in the stadium.

Churrascos provided catering that mirrored but surpassed popular baseball stadium meals.

The evening raised record funds for the SpringSprit programs which are conducted at the Campbell Road and Pitner Road campuses in the North Spring Branch. The programs are designed to provide pathways for young people to realize life opportunities through athletic, educational and mentoring programs based on Christian principles.
