It’s always great to hear programs in the cheerleading industry doing great things, and the athletes and staff at Woodlands Elite have done just that. In honor of the Veterans Day holiday, the 14th annual Woodlands Elite Showcase surpassed all goals set for the weekend. It was a great day filled with routines that sparked excitement for another successful season. The amazing families and friends had an incredible bonding experience at NRG Arena in Houston. This day also gave the program an amazing opportunity to spread awareness about the Wounded Warrior Project.
WWP is a charity and veterans service organization that offers a variety of programs, service and events for wounded veterans of the military actions following the events of September 11, 2001.
With donations from the gracious Woodlands Elite families, friends and ticket sales from the event, the Woodlands Elite program was able to raise $8,000 for the Wounded Warrior Project. As a sponsor of the event, Nfinity was also kind enough to provide two backpacks that were auctioned off.
“When we started Woodlands Elite in 2002 we decided to use a military theme to name our teams,” says Allen Shearer, General Manager of Woodlands Elite. “To be able to watch over 3,000 fans, athletes and staff members support each other and also support a great cause like Wounded Warrior Project last Sunday was truly a remarkable experience. We are truly blessed.”
Woodlands Elite supports our Veterans and is proud stand behind the Wounded Warriors Project. Woodlands Elite currently has five locations in the Houston, Texas area.
