Those who attended the Rise and Shine Spring Breakfast at River Oaks Country Club with special guest speaker Monja Willis, mother of Houston Rockets star James Harden, got a great message. As a single mom who worked several jobs, Monja raised James and his siblings. She relied on the Boys & Girls Club to provide safe care while she worked. She now cheers on and gives back to single mothers in Houston. Cort Keener, 2019 Youth of the Year, gave a masterly spoken testimonial as to how the club helped a perceived misfit become a productive asset to society. Breakfast chair Sean Wheeler welcomed the guests, and Sarah Joseph, community relations director for the Houston Rockets, handled the speaker introductions and raffles for James Harden bobbleheads. David Wegner, Jim Tomforde and David Henry were seen at the scene.
