HOUSTON, Texas – May 6, 2015– Trenegy consultants volunteered last weekend at Boys and Girls Country of Houston’s annual Spring Festival. Trenegy co-sponsors the event and Managing Director Bill Aimone serves on the Board of Directors.
The festival kicked off with Pedal for a Purpose, a charity bike ride, early Saturday morning. Beautiful weather, fun rides, and a great cause brought over 3,500 attendees. The festival and bike ride raised approximately $600,000.
Proceeds will go toward funding expenses for the 88 children staying at Boys and Girls Country and the 14 young adults in the College and Career program. Boys and Girls Country is a home for children whose families are in crisis and are in need of a place to live.
“We believe in giving back to our community in ways that leave a legacy for future generations. Our whole team is committed to giving our time and talents to support nonprofit organizations that make positive changes in the lives of children in our community,” said Managing Directors Bill Aimone and Peter Purcell.
$139 a day provides a home, food, medical care, clothing, ‘round the clock Teaching Parent Staff, and after school tutoring and counseling. The money raised at Saturday’s event is critical to helping children transition to Boys and Girls Country.
