In addition to breakfast, all donors will receive a special holiday t-shirt and be entered into a drawing for a $50 gift card that will be given away at the end of the day. Donors will also be eligible to win two tickets to see the Super Bowl® which includes a three night stay in Houston. The game drawing will be held at the end of December.
