Classic fun brings in thousands to support Hope For Three

L to R: Rhett, age 5, dad, Matt Smith, and Darla Farmer
Last week, two individually hosted events featuring favorite family games raised nearly $10,000 for Hope For Three, a local nonprofit and autism advocacy organization.

Matt Smith, an autism dad, organized a family-friendly cornhole tournament, Airmail for Autism, at Houston Premier Sportsplex that raised $3,500 to benefit Hope For Three. Smith’s five-year-old son, Rhett, who lives with autism, was the inspiration behind the fundraiser. Missouri City councilwoman, and autism mom Lynn Clouser, also organized a BINGO fundraiser at Cabo Dogs, Missouri City that raised $4,200. BINGO participants took home a variety of incredible prizes with raffle items from Rocking M Ranch.

Both families now aim to make these successful events annual fundraisers supporting Hope For Three’s programs. Hope For Three provides resources and financial aid to families directly impacted by autism spectrum disorder and lead programs that inspire and teach the community, like, Teen Huddle. It’s Cool to Care and Crisis Intervention Training.
