Thursday 3/29 is the first official day of the PGA Tour Houston Open.  HEART really needs volunteers on Thursday to help us kick off the tournament. It is predicted to be a gorgeous day.  And, it will be very busy!  Volunteers need to wear khaki pants and a T-shirt and BRING A HAT.  We’ll give you a HEART T-shirt to wear while you’re volunteering.
