A sold-out crowd of 350 guests at Eccelsia near downtown cheered on the success of Project 88 on Friday, April 22. Founders Ericka and Garrett Graham were joined by founding chairs Hannah and Cal McNair and Lisa and Chris Seay. Their goal is to empower underserved students and end generational poverty in the city of Houston through supporting college advisors in Houston public schools and sponsoring summer success programs at Rice University.
Emcees Chester Pitts and Devi Dev kept the energy high throughout the evening as paddles flew high during the live auction. The Spazmatics added to the fun and kept the tunes going late into the night. Over $250,000 was raised to support the Game Day Gala mission.
