For the 2018 holiday season m Strategic Partners was happy to continue our tradition of working with our friends at Casa de Esperanza de los Niños. The team went to the Casa de Esperanza neighborhood for lunch and a playdate with the children and brought the season's MVP, Santa, as a surprise. We enjoyed a special reading of Santa's favorite holiday books and were happy to see the excitement of the children as they talked about the season. mSP was also proud to be a part of Casa de Esperanza's holiday donation drive sponsoring a child's wish list, providing toys and clothes to bring some holiday magic.
In September 2018, m Strategic Partners hosted our annual charity sporting clay shoot at Westside Sporting Grounds - Cars and Clays. As our second year benefiting our friends at Casa de Esperanza de los Niños, we had a record breaking event! With more than 230 particpants including many of our frineds in the A/E/C industry, we raised $100,000 to donate to Casa de Esperanza.
m Strategic Partners was a proud underwriter of the 2018 Rice Design Alliance Gala honoring Judge Ed Emmett for his contributions and leadership to Houston. Along with the theme for the event, Public, the goal was to highlight the public service, public space, and the community that comes together to protect the city's urban landscape. From sponsorships and the silent auction, this year's event raised more than $500,000 for the RDA's educational programs and grants. mSP's Richard Morris served on the 2018 Fundraising Committee.
