The Dynamic Duo of HOWARD SACKS, Chair of Levitt Pavilion Houston, and BILL BURHANS, President of the Willow Waterhole Greenspace Conservancy, will provide details regarding the $millions coming to Southwest Houston via the Kinder Foundation.

So tune in Monday night and hear about it all…Kinder Bucks, Trails, New Access Street and Parking, Levitt Pavilion….where does it stop or does it!
