Presentation Preceded Cheerleader Tryouts
12 Apr 2008
The Houston Texans present a generous donation to an area surgical and research center.
The Texans presented a $50,000 check Saturday morning to the Methodist DeBakey Heart and Vascular Center inside the Texans 'bubble' practice facility at the Methodist Training Center.
A partnership between the NFL team and Methodist Hospital benefited the Center with the net proceeds from sales of the debut release of the Houston Texans Cheerleaders Swimsuit Calendar. The calendars, which were priced at $10, went on sale in November 2007 at Academy Sports and Outdoors stores located in the Houston area.
Calendar cover model Celina presented the check to representatives from the Heart and Vascular Center. The presentation took place before the first round of auditions began for the 2008 Houston Texans Cheerleaders squad. More than 750 ladies had registered in advance for the auditions.
