Every year we do one big fundraiser to help a local Houston family, last year our focus was two families impacted by Harvey. With the help of our community we made a tremendous impact on helping them rebuild after devastation to their homes. This year our focus is on a Houston family of four that is in need of help for their 2 year sons medical bills.
The Zertuche's have been financially struggling the past two years. Recently their two year old child Guillermo has been diagnosed with the probability on the spectrum of Autism. In order for his chances of the best outcome, the physician has recommended 40 hours per week of behavioral therapy. Although they have health insurance, the $5000 deductible and continued copay has put a financial strain on this family that they are unable to handle.
To help the Zertuche's we're selling raffle tickets with the chance to win gifts from Space Montrose and a $300 gift card to our store. Each ticket is $5 and can be purchased online or at Space Montrose (1706 Westheimer Rd.) Anyone that contributes more than $5 will be entered for a chance to win. The winner will be announced September 1st in Space Montrose at an event we're hosting for the Zertuche's little boy, 10% of all sales will be contributed to them the day of the event in addition.
There's a naivety about me that believes we can easily come together and raise this money for little Guillermo. There's a lot of us and we just need to sale some raffle tickets. Let's do this Houston, together we can provide peace of mind to one family that really needs us right now.
