Houston Charity Event Weekend: Sept. 8th-10th

Join us for a series of amazing events to raise funds for our friends and family in Houston that are being affected by the devastating flooding. All profits from these events will be distributed to local organizations that are directly helping those in need and directly to some friends of the ship that have lost everything.

If you would like to help, here’s what we need:
– Cash donations (credit cards are accepted, but we’ll need to subtract the fees)
– Donations for household items, pet supplies, and toiletries
– People with trucks who can deliver collected items to local donation centers
– Items for prize support

We’ll be collecting items at the ship from Friday, September 8th to Sunday, September 10th during the events.
