Texas-Sized Love for the Texas Bowl
For the past ten years, DePelchin Children’s Center has been honored to be the official charitable beneficiary of the AdvoCare V100 Texas Bowl. Every December , as two teams from the Big 12 and SEC meet at NRG Stadium to compete in the Texas Bowl, DePelchin gets a front row seat to the action with player meet and greets and tickets to the big game. Since its inception, the Bowl has donated more than $850,000 in financial support to DePelchin with a record-breaking donation of $150,000 in 2014.
Meet and Greet with Players
DePelchin families are the big winners of the Texas Bowl, getting the opportunity not only to enjoy complimentary tickets to the game but also to meet the players during team visits. As part of their busy bowl week activities this year, players from LSU and Texas Tech met up with our children and families at the Children’s Museum on December 27 for an afternoon of autographs and picture-taking fun. New this year was a scavenger hunt that teamed up our children with players from each team to explore the Children’s Museum together.
Tickets to the Game
Thanks to donated tickets from the Bowl Backer program, parents and children, many of whom had never been to NRG stadium, experienced a memorable evening of football fun!
The whole event was a real class act. Thank you so much for such wonderful experiences for our family. - K. Garcia
