The Clutch City Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) established in 1995 by Rockets owner Leslie Alexander to Provide help, hope and inspiration to those who might otherwise be forgotten. Since its inception, the Clutch City foundation has raised more than $10 million for those who are less fortunate. Tux & Tennies is the foundation's premier fundraiser, and over the years has helped thousands of Houstonians in need.

Season of Giving
This has become a holiday tradition bringing together
Rockets players, their families and members of the business
team, as they host a series of events for members of the
community who are less fortunate. Each year, hundreds of
children and their families are the recipients of private
parties, gifts and surprise visits by players.


United Way
Our partnership with the United Way of Greater Houston is just one more way that we are investing in our
community. Throughout the year, our entire organization volunteers for service projects and special
committees, as well as make personal donations to the annual campaign.
