As I mentioned last month, the second softball match up of the year between members of the Harris County Defense Bar and the Harris County District Attorney's Office was held on October 19th. One of the added features of this particular game was that five generous donors had agreed to donate $100 per run to the Harris County Drug Court in the name of Mike Anderson.
I'm happy to report that the results of the fundraising were a tremendous success and raised a whopping $12,500!
Those donors (Chip Lewis, Paul Doyle, Will Womble, Walter Umphrey and Kristi Schiller) all combined for an outstanding tribute to an outstanding cause in the name of an outstanding leader and man.
In a related story, the County Commissioners unanimously voted to name the Drug Court's courtroom earlier this month. It has now been officially named the Mike Anderson Memorial Courtroom.
Congratulations to everyone involved!
