Snowdrop Foundation is dedicated to assisting patients and families at Texas Children’s Cancer Center through funding for continued research to eliminate childhood cancer and scholarships for college bound pediatric cancer patients and survivors. By raising awareness and funding, Snowdrop Foundation celebrates the hope that one day a cure for all childhood cancers will be found allowing the purity of every child to remain untouched by the devastating diagnosis of cancer.
Our History of Giving
Houston Tweet Drive is an annual, collaborative charity event that uses social media and the evolution of online collaboration tools to bring our local community together for a holiday toy drive. At the event, each guest’s donation serves as their entry ticket to a night of live music, local grub, drinks, and community cheer – all in honor of this year’s beneficiary, Snowdrop Foundation, who are in need of toys for children during the holiday season.
Starting in 2010, Houston Tweet Drive has grown tremendously in its efforts to connect the Houston community with an opportunity to “give back” to those in need.

We are excited to announce that this year’s Houston Tweet Drive will be held at local hotspot, Irish Cowboy.
Irish Cowboy provides a sanctuary of space and character like no other by combining two of the best social gathering concepts under one roof (an Irish Pub blended with a vast backyard feel of a Texas Hill Country Ice House and Bar). From the stage to around-the-bar entertainment, Houston Tweet Drive decided that this spot would be perfect to host the event again this year.
