WHETHER IT’S TOUTING THE HOUSTON COUGARS, THE HOUSTON Police Foundation or even his businesses, entrepreneur Tillman Fertitta stays at the top of his game.

Lately that game was NCAA basketball, particularly the March Madness bracket that’s always the highest level of sports excitement between the Super Bowl, the NBA Championship and the World Series.

Just like his policing priorities, the police foundation chairman knew the right choices. Like numerous titans of business and finance from across the nation, he submitted his personal bracket and anted up $10,000 for charity. For a second consecutive year, it was an event set up by Bloomberg. Termed “Brackets for a Cause,” it enables two or three winners to win “the pot” for their favorite charity.

Fertitta split the pot with a co-winner and thus deposited $161,500 into the ever-growing Houston Police Foundation coffer – which is ever and a day dedicated to helping HPD purchase equipment and facilities the city budget is unable to cover. This latest contribution will be bracketed for the HPD Tactical Training Facility

The HPOU and the Badge & Gun can’t say enough about Fertitta’s dedication and support of HPD officers in particular and the Houston area law enforcement community in general. His annual fundraising extravaganza at his River Oaks residents stands out as a top-of-the-line tradition.

And Police Week is coming up this month. You will see Tillman Fertitta out front, honoring the year’s top officers, police administrators and civilian employees as well as taking the lead in remembering those who have given the ultimate in the line of duty.

Yep, Tillman Fertitta is a true winner in both the March Madness and the May kudos and remembrances!
