The Houston Chapter of the LHAB has played two events in 2013. The first was a memorial reception for Louis M. Pearce, Jr. The reception was held at the River Oaks Country Club in Houston and attendees included members of the UT athletic department (from whom the request to play came) and people involved with the Houston Rodeo and Livestock Show. As Mr. Pearce was avid in his support of both institutions, a large number of people paid their respects. The second was the annual spring fund raiser for the Houston Texas Exes.
We are scheduled to play for the 70th anniversary of the Seven Acres Jewish Geriatric Center on April 27. This event will be similar to the one in Austin in late March and will honor Darrel and Edith Royal for their founding of the DKR Foundation to find a cure for Alzheimer’s. We also expect to play during the summer at Longhorn Night for the Sugar Land Skeeters, Houston area’s minor league baseball team. We may even make it for the Houston Astros.
