The Results of the Softball Game

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!

I saw that this post had no comments and it made me sad. So I'm leaving one. Hey, Murray.

Thanks Scott! Although I just published it about 30 minutes ago.

But, it is always nice to hear from you!

Paul Doyle sure has established himself as the go to heavy hitter at the courthouse. Good for him.

It's nice to see that our lawyers and judges now support crack addicted hookers and religious coverups over crime victims after much of the Houston non-profit and socialite world has removed their support!!!
