HOUSTON, Texas — It’s amazing that organizations would take time out of Super Bowl week to give back to our community! Super Bowl Gospel Celebration, volunteers from Generation Hope, an outreach of Joel Osteen Ministries, and other community partners will host an indoor “Super-Size Tailgate Party” for the homeless women and children at Houston’s Star of Hope Mission.
The event features area celebrity chefs designing and preparing a traditional “Tailgate Fan Meal” for an estimated 200 homeless clients of Star of Hope. The dinnertime menu will include burgers, hot dogs, wings, mac and cheese, chips, dip, and cobbler. This will all be hand delivered to each client at their decorated table by the Generation Hope team, former Houston NFL players, city officials, and Houston Super Bowl Host Committee members, with the possible surprise drop-in of Houston Texans and other celebrities.
This unique celebration takes place on Tuesday, January 31, 2017 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Star of Hope Transitional Living Center, 6897 Ardmore (near NRG Park) during Super Bowl Week. This will allow the homeless women, and children to experience something close to a normal life activity as they literally get a taste of, and share in some of the Super Bowl excitement that will be surrounding them.
Area Celebrity chefs include Paul Friedman (Peli Peli), Richard Knight (Hunky Dory), Luca Manfe (Winner of Masterchef Season 4 / Lucky Fig), Justin Turner (Bernies Burger Bus), and Josh Collier (Café Dolce Gelato).
We welcome the local and national press to attend and participate in this spotlight on Houston’s heart for charity and generosity during Super Bowl Week.
