HOUSTON - University of Houston Athletics fans now have the opportunity to look good wearing the merchandise of their favorite team AND help a most worthy cause.
Officials at UH campus bookstores as well as UHFanShop.com are selling two different UH hats as part of Operation Hat Trick. Portions of the proceeds from the sale of each brand of hat will support America's Wounded Warriors, an organization dedicated to the recovery of active service members and veterans.
The hats are on sale now for a limited time at UH campus bookstores and UHFanShop.com. These hats also will be sold this weekend at BBVA Compass Stadium in downtown Houston where the Cougars face American Athletic Conference rival Cincinnati at 11 a.m., Saturday.
