In just a few weekends, a partnership between two local restaurants and county emergency services, raised over $23,350.25 for the Greater Houston Community Foundation for the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund.

The total comes after the completion of both the spaghetti feed which raised $9,948.00 and the boot drive held in Williams which raised $13,402.25.

Dozens of local businesses sold spaghetti feed tickets and collected donations, and even local youth got evolved.

“We want to thank all of the businesses that participated,” said Dino McCarty of Granzella’s. “We’d like to give special thanks to Alaina, who raised money through her lemonade stand.”

Area businesses included Rocco’s, Alsco-Geyer, Davies Oil, Davison Drug and Stationery, Fouch & Son Pharmacy, Granzella’s, Sankey Auto, Valley Farm Transport, the Williams, Princeton, Arbuckle, and Colusa Fire Department.

McCarty said the group would like to extend extra thanks to Alsco-Geyer, Colusa Industrial Properties, Davies Brothers, Sankey Auto Co., Shirley Cecil, Weston Buildings, the 520 Squad Club, the Princeton Fire Department, Sysco, Louis Cairos, Maggiora Baking Company, U.S. Foods, and General produce for their additional monetary donations or donation of supplies.
