Invitation to the Kenny Houston Hall of Fame Dinner on April 12th

Houston, TX - 3/29/2007

Many former professional athletes will join the Methodist DeBakey Heart Center and Houston Texans Foundation on April 12 for the Kenny Houston Hall of Fame Dinner in the fight against heart disease.

Heart disease is a leading cause of death for men and women in the United States, and former professional athletes can find themselves at an increased risk once they retire from a life of training.

Kenny Houston Hall of Fame Dinner

The dinner will include an interactive program with players and a silent auction of NFL memorabilia. All proceeds from the dinner and silent auction will benefit the Methodist DeBakey Heart Center and the Houston Texans Foundation.

Tickets to the event are available to the general public. For more information, please call April Beasley with the Houston Texans at 832-667-2033.
