The 11th grade team is fundraising to help defray the travel expenses and you can help by joining them on Thursday, May 15th, at Sweet Tomatoes Restaurant, 8775 Katy Fwy, Houston, TX 77024 (on the southside feeder road of I-10, between Campbell and Voss).

If you bring the attached flyer and buy dinner and a drink, Sweet Tomatoes donates 15% of the proceeds to the team. You get a great meal and support us at the same time.  However, if you forget your flyer, a team representative can give you a replacement. Thanks so much for your consideration and we hope to see you at Sweet Tomatoes on Thursday night.
