Culture Map Houston – Proving again to be one of the most likable off-the-field teams in professional sports, the Houston Astros took over one of Houston’s hottest style spots for a feel-good fundraiser for some worthy causes at the recent Team Up for Kids and K9s event.
On a day off against the Cleveland Indians, World Series champs José Altuve, Lance McCullers, and Dallas Keuchel held court at fashion mecca Tootsies, which was festooned with Astros photos, a red carpet, and the World Series trophy. The iconic retailer crafted a mix of sports hype and runway elegance.
The Astros trio strolled the carpet, met with media, and spread the word about their individual non-profits: the Lance McCullers Jr. Foundation, which focuses on spaying, neutering, and finding homes for homeless animals; the José Altuve Foundation at Athletes and Causes, which aids The Sunshine Kids Foundation; and the Dallas Keuchel Foundation at Athletes and Causes, which benefits The Sunshine Kids Foundation and animal charities. (The Sunshine Kids focuses on enriching the lives of children with cancer.)
