Organizers of the Houston Classic Weekend are gearing up for one of the biggest motoring weekends in the state, staged at the award winning La Torretta Lake Resort & Spa in Montgomery with Montgomery County Emergency Assistance named as the local beneficiary charity. Another charity is getting proceeds too, one I have supported for years, Holy Angels residential facility in Shreveport.
