The Houston Rockets, along with the family of team owner Tilman J. Fertitta and Harris County Precinct 1 Constable Alan Rosen, are hosting a relief drive at Toyota Center for victims of Hurricane Ian. Fans who donate at least seven needed items will get a ticket voucher.
Items will be accepted at select times on Friday, Oct. 7 and Saturday, Oct. 8, and the voucher can be used on free tickets for the team’s regular-season game on Monday, Oct. 24 versus Utah.
Here are more details from the team’s announcement, including details on when and where donations are being accepted:
The Fertitta Family, Houston Rockets, and Harris County Precinct 1 Constable Alan Rosen are teaming up to host a relief drive for victims of Hurricane Ian which caused widespread damage last week in the southeast United States.
Donations will be collected curbside at the intersection of Polk and La Branch Streets at Toyota Center on Friday, Oct. 7 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. (local time) prior to the Rockets’ preseason game later that night versus Toronto.
Fans attending the Rockets’ annual open practice and fan fest on Saturday, Oct. 8 are also encouraged to donate items when they enter Toyota Center. Information on registering for Saturday’s event, which is open to the public, is available at Rockets.com.
Fans who donate at least seven items will receive a voucher to attend the Rockets game vs. Utah on Monday, Oct. 24. Items needed include water, non-perishable food, baby food, diapers, and cleaning supplies. American Red Cross Texas Gulf Coast is aiding by identifying those in need from impacted areas to distribute the donated items.
Constable Rosen was first elected to his position in 2012 and has three decades of experience in local law enforcement. He established the first homeless outreach team for his department and managed security of the NRG shelter during Hurricane Harvey in August 2017.
Further information on all of these events and activities is available from the team’s official website at Rockets.com.
