HOUSTON, Texas (FOX 26) - As game 5 of the Western Conference Finals began members of the Santa Fe High School choir sang the national anthem. The first shot for charity was taken by Rachel Blundell, principal of Santa Fe High School. To honor the students, faculty and law enforcement that have been through so much this last week, owner of the Rockets Tilman Fertitta not only invited them to the game, but took care of everything from food to transportation.
Giving back to those that have been through so much. “There is nothing like loss of life and as important as and as great as it would feel to win I would give up that win immediately to bring all those ten lives back and erase what happened today because it’s just game and everyone is still going to get paid and I’m going to still be alright regardless of a win or loss but we are where we are this is the life our God created and it’s just what we have to deal with”, says Fertitta.
