September 7, 2011
On Friday, September 9, 2011, the Houston READ Commission and the Houston City Controller's Office Bank on Houston program will present the McGraw-Hill Companies sponsored Financial Fitness Festival to Houstonians in a fun-filled atmosphere to simultaneously entertain and educate guests about money management.
Money management seminars will be offered throughout the day in English and Spanish. There will be activities for the entire family, including cookie decorating for children, book readings and opportunities to learn about valuable financial services in Houston.
There will be free food and water (until supplies run out) and raffle off door prizes including gift cards, Astros tickets and books.
Informed financial decision-making is more important now than ever. Houston READ Commission and Bank on Houston realize the future success of our community depends on financial education because it empowers individuals to make wise money decisions.
