Clint Capela will host the Celebrity Slam, his foundation’s first major event, at The JW Marriott Houston Downtown on Friday, March 29th. The NBA star and Rocket’s fan favorite recently launched his foundation with a mission to help the Houston community and single parent families. All proceeds from the event will benefit low-income, single parent families in the area. Upon arrival, guests will enjoy a cocktail reception followed by a delicious dinner and spirited live and silent auctions, which include incredible items such as Rockets courtside seats and a meet and greet with Capela, signed Rockets jerseys and exotic vacation packages. Not only will Clint be there himself, but his Houston Rockets teammates will be in attendance as well. All guests will be given a basketball for celebrity signage purposes.
Clint Capela’s CC15 Foundation’s mission was inspired by his upbringing in Switzerland. Born to a single mother, Capela and his brothers were moved into welfare orphanages at ages six and ten, only able to visit their mother on the weekends. The foundation focuses on giving kids great experiences not typically available to them in single parent homes.
The mission of Clint Capela’s CC15 Foundation is to help provide low-income single parent families with the same opportunities that are available to dual parent, middle and upper-class families.
