JJ Watt Charity Classic

After the Justin J. Watt Foundation took a year off to focus on Hurricane Harvey relief efforts in 2017, it's time for the games to resume! JJ Watt is excited to announce the JJ Watt Foundation Charity Classic and home-run derby will be on Saturday, May 4, 2019, at Minute Maid Park. Watt and his teammates will play softball to benefit the foundation's mission to provide funding for middle schools across the country that have insufficient or no funding for after-school athletic programs.

In addition to enjoying the softball game, Charity Classic attendees can also purchase raffle tickets, JJ Watt Foundation merchandise, or bid on various silent auction items.

Tickets for the JJ Watt Charity Classic go on sale ONLINE ONLY Tuesday, December 18, at 9:00am.
