A Taste of Houston, Texas

did you know?
DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT HOUSTON?

  1. Houston is the fourth-largest city in the United States of America and the largest city in the state of Texas. As of the 2009 U.S. Census estimate, the city had a population of 2.3 million.

  2. By 1910, Houston's population had reached 78,800, almost doubling from a decade before. An integral part of the city were African Americans, who numbered 23,929 or nearly one-third of the residents.They were developing a strong professional class based then in the Fourth Ward.

  3. Since the 1990s, as a result of the recession, Houston has made efforts to diversify its economy by focusing on aerospace and health care/biotechnology and by reducing its dependence on the petroleum industry. In 1997, Houstonians elected Lee P. Brown as the city's first African American mayor.

  4. Many annual events celebrate the diverse cultures of Houston. The largest and longest running is the annual Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, held over 20 days from late February to early March, which happens to be the largest annual Livestock Show and Rodeo anywhere in the world. Another large celebration is the annual night-time Houston Pride Parade, held at the end of June. Other annual events include the Houston Greek Festival, Art Car Parade, the Houston Auto Show, the Houston International Festival, and the Bayou City Art Festival, which is considered to be one of the top five art festivals in the United States.

  5. Venues across Houston regularly host local and touring hip hop, rock, blues, country, dubstep, and Tejano musical acts. While Houston has never been a widely renowned for its music scene, Houston hip-hop has become a significant, independent music scene, influencing some larger Southern hip hop and gangsta rap communities. Houston is also the home of chopped and screwed music.

  6. Prominent artists from Houston include pop and R&B group Destiny's Child. Houston also had fledgling blues and folk scenes in the sixties and seventies. Notable blues performers included Lightnin' Hopkins, Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, "Texas" Johnny Brown, Johnny "Guitar" Watson, Albert Collins, Johnny Copeland, and Joe "Guitar" Hughes; many of whom recorded with hometown music label Peacock Records.

  7. Houston's murder rate ranked 46th of U.S. cities with a population over 250,000 in 2005 (per capita rate of 16.3 murders per 100,000 population). Houston has experienced a significant rise in crime, which the Houston Police Department partly attributed to an influx of people from New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina. Houston, due to its size and proximity to major illegal drug exporting nations, is a significant hub for trafficking of cocaine, marijuana, heroin, MDMA, and methamphetamine.

  8. Within the Houston's historic Third Ward community is Texas Southern University (TSU). Founded in 1927, it is a historically black four-year university with a pharmacy school and the Thurgood Marshall School of Law.

  9. During the summer months, it is common for the temperature to reach over 90 °F, with an average of 99 days per year above 90 °F. Winters in Houston are fairly temperate. The average high in January, the coldest month, is 62 °F, while the average low is 39 °F. Snowfall is generally rare. Houston receives a high amount of rainfall annually, averaging about 54 inches a year. These rains tend to cause floods over portions of the city.

McPherson is currently preparing to host Daddy Daughter Day, Mother Son Fun, and a Family Ball. Fathers of Houston TX will be invited to have brunch, bowling and manicures with their daughters. Mothers and sons will be invited to spend a day golfing with their son, and the entire family will be invited out to a black tie evening event. This is a collaborated movement for an Atlanta, Georgia Non-Profit organization that is working to make these events memorable and hosted Annually Events in Atlanta GA and Houston TX.

We will partner with various non profits and organizations that promote and support the notion of fatherhood, motherhood, community empowerment and entrepreneurship. We will be honoring dads and moms that are active in their children's lives and single parents in Houston, TX, and to empower and encourage dads to be dads. Too many children have become at risk children due to the lack of family support, financial support and mentors due to the economics single parenting. Fathers are not in their children’s life or not spending quality time with them. Single moms are forced to balance work, and family duties, single mothers must work overtime to compensate for the low salaries. Our goal is to bring awareness to this problem and encourage dads to be willing participants in their children’s lives so that our children won’t have to be lost to the streets.

We are looking for sponsorships and guest appearances to participate in our event, to help make this day filled with fun food, entertainment, and gifts that will be memorable for dads and daughters. Sponsorships funds will be used to make the day affordable for fathers, promote the day throughout Houston’s places of worship, and various organizations, Donations to http://Pen Pointe Foundation.net. Funding will also support social networks, radio, and printed media promotions, facility rental and expenses. Several Sponsorship Packages are available and include tickets to the event, company logo or Individual patron name included in promotional material and website advertisement. Thank you in advance for you time and consideration.
