AT&T SportsNet is excited to support the Astros Foundation again this season by broadcasting the annual Charity Game as a way to raise awareness of the Astros’ extensive efforts to fight childhood cancer in our community,” said David Peart, General Manager, AT&T SportsNet. “The event helps to raise funds in support of those efforts as well as the worthy beneficiaries for this season’s event.”

“We want to thank AT&T SportsNet for their partnership and support of our efforts,” said Senior Vice President, Community Affairs and Astros Foundation Executive Director Twila Carter. “Childhood cancer awareness is one of the Astros Foundation’s cornerstone initiatives and we are thrilled to partner with AT&T SportsNet to bring awareness to our efforts as well as many deserving charities.”
