Steve and Amber Mostyn Host Event to Raise Money for Special Olympics Texas
Date:10/26/2013

Houston, Texas (PRWEB) October 26, 2013

Houston trial lawyers Steve and Amber Mostyn hosted the “Celebration of Champions” fundraiser last night to benefit Special Olympics Texas (SOTX). In total, more than $250,000 was pledged to the athletic organization.

The event, organized by the Mostyn Moreno Foundation, was held at the home of Steve and Amber Mostyn. Funds from the event are earmarked for the completion of the Christi Stanley Building in Austin, the future headquarters of SOTX. The new building will be named after Amber Mostyn’s mother, Christi Stanley, a longtime advocate for people with disabilities.

“We’re delighted to continue our support of this great organization,” said Amber Mostyn. “Organized athletics are important for all kids. Steve and I are honored to be the host of this event in celebration of the accomplishments of these amazing athletes.”

In addition to Thursday’s fundraiser, the Mostyns have donated over $2 million to SOTX for the completion of their new headquarters. The Christi Stanley building will host training seminars for coaches and athletes as well as house the organization’s administrative offices.

“Support of the Special Olympics allows kids and adults to have a chance to engage in activities that may not be part of their normal life”, said Steve Mostyn.” The organization provides priceless support beyond the field and courts these athletes participate in.”

Guests to the fundraiser included former Olympic athletes and prominent members of the Houston community.
