After the decision was made to cancel the Cowboys preseason game against the Texans so the Houston players could return to their homes and their families, Jerry Jones and the organization decided to turn the free night into another chance to help raise funds for the victims of the hurricane.
Current Cowboys and legends gathered at AT&T stadium for live practice and telethon with all the proceeds going to the Salvation Army for Hurricane Harvey relief.
One of the biggest donations of the night came from Jerry Jones himself, who surprised with Dez Bryant with a phone call, and a $1 million pledge!
Houston Texans General Manager Rick Smith said of the Cowboy’s efforts, ” I can’t say enough about how cooperative, how impressed I’ve just been with the Jones family and the entire Cowboys organization. The way that they have cooperated with us and helped us — I can’t extend more gratitude to the Joneses and the Cowboys organization and how much we appreciate that.”
