HOUSTON -- With life-saving rescues going round the clock for five days straight, Texas first responders and front-line heroes deserve a much-needed break.
"We've been cooking all night to feed the first responders and folks in uniform for their heroic efforts surrounding the Hurricane Harvey," Levi Goode, President of Goode Company restaurants, said.
The Goode Co. Armadillo Palace held a special benefit luncheon to say 'thank you' to the brave men and women who are serving our community so valiantly after the storm.
"We have food for over 3,000 people today," Goode said. "It's just great to see how the city comes together in a time of need when many are in crisis."
It doesn't get much more Texas than eating barbecue under a giant armadillo!
And for all these dedicated heroes, taking time out for a delicious meal really hit the spot.
ApexOne Investment Partners joined Goode Company staff and volunteers in feeding the first responders.
"We're Texans! We're Houstonians, and this is the way we are," Goode declared. "We've seen it in other times of catastrophe in our area. This isn't the first flood or hurricane we've had-- surely, it may be the worst. But, it's good to see people rise up and help the community in times of need."
Now that's a well-deserved, Texas-sized salute to all our Lone Star heroes!
