In the Community - Feb. 7

By Tony Nolte

Welcome to my new blog on all things Dynamo Charities. Throughout the year, I will provide updates and information on Dynamo Charities events and happenings.

Before I talk about our 2013 program, let me take a minute to wrap up 2012. We ended the year with the annual Dynamo Celebration, and what a perfect end it was to a near perfect season. Held at the Hotel Zaza, the event was simply fantastic. Glenn Davis did a marvelous job as emcee, the auction went well and everyone had a great time. It was THE event to cap the year for Dynamo Charities.

Other notable events last year included Calen Carr's bowling event at 300 Houston, Will Bruin's Bald is Beautiful head-shaving event, fighting breast cancer with Bobby Boswell, the Kroger shopping spree with Brian and the Ching's Champions and our annual salute to the military with Brad’s Brigade.  I want to thank all the players for their work in 2012, as well as each of you  that supported one or more of our events. 2012 was our most successful year yet, and the Dynamo Charities Board of Directors along with Executive Director Lori Ginsburg are excited for 2013.

We will have all of the fan favorite events back in 2013. Our first event for the year will again be the Fire Sale, where lots of Dynamo gear from last season will be available generally at discounted prices. The sale will be held the same day as our annual Meet the Team Day, and is open only to season ticket holders. So if the play on the field or the fantastic stadium is not reason enough to be a season ticket holder, then Meet the Team Day and the Fire Sale should be!

As we move into the season, we will announce specific information for initiatives such as Brad’s Brigade, Bald is Beautiful and Bobby Boots Cancer. We are also hoping to have a few new initiatives this year and we hope to release full details soon

In September, we will again form a team to ride in the ADA Tour de Cure (with the coolest bike jersey you'll find) and we will of course end the year with Dynamo Celebration

Thanks for taking the time to read my first blog. I hope to provide regular community updates throughout the year. You can also follow me on Twitter @dynamochrtytony for up-to-date information on Dynamo Charities initiatives.

We look forward to taking another step forward in 2013, and with your support, we can make a big impact in the Houston community.

Thanks for your help!
