Katy, TX News (May 5, 2015) – Better Homes & Gardens Real Estate Gary Greene, (BHGRE) pulled out all the stops on its “Let’s Go To The Hop” Katy Sunshine Fest to raise funds for two children’s cancer charities, The Sunshine Kids and Triumph Over Kids Cancer. With the support of such longtime sponsors as Firethorne, ticket sales and matching funds by University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, the annual fundraiser brought in $45,000 to help bring hope and joy to children undergoing cancer treatment, as well as to fund research specific to pediatric cancer.
According to Event Chair Bob Miles, a Realtor with BHGRE Gary Greene, Firethorne has partnered with the Katy Sunshine Fest from the benefit’s beginning. This year’s 50s-theme party was held at Faith West Academy in Katy.
“We were drawn to help sponsor the Katy Sunshine Fest because cancer is not something you choose, but it has the potential of changing everyone in the family’s life, not just the patient’s,” said Firethorne Marketing Director Janet Burkett.
M.D. Anderson Cancer Center President Dr. Ronald DePinho was a special guest and spoke at the benefit.
