From Nancy Byron:
Houston, TX - Hip Hop stations are always looking for an appropriate way to reach out to the children in their community but Morning Show Host, Madd Hatta, and the higher-ups at 97.9 The Box routinely come up with perfect ways to do just that.
Reminiscent of his Hatta's 100's community outreach effort, where he requested school-aged males send him letters about how they planned to 'keep it 100' during the upcoming school year and awarded the most deserving 100 kids a Suit Mart shopping trip for their first day of school, Madd Hatta has this time requested parents write in and send a brief letter about their child that talks about why that child should be one of Hatta's Elves. The reward is that child's participation in 97.9's annual Hatta's Elves private Christmas party. Beginning Monday, December 15th and continuing through Friday, December 19th, the most deserving children will be selected at the rate of 100 per day; 500 children ages 7 - 12 in total.
The party, which is being held at Houston's original Dave & Buster's location (6010 Richmond @ Fountainview), will feature a visit from Santa himself, free breakfast and fun and games sponsored by Dave & Busters, a live performance by DJ Unk and the chance to win a multitude of sponsor-donated prizes. Sponsored items include 100 bikes courtesy of Active Athlete, 100 basketballs courtesy of The Kenny Thomas Foundation (Sacramento Kings) and 100 pair of Rockets tickets courtesy of the Houston Rockets. Each attending child will also be allowed one free visit to the Houston Children's Museum.
The Madd Hatta Morning Show will broadcast live from the event which takes place on Tuesday, December 23rd from 7 - 10AM. (This event is not open to the public)
Media coverage at the event is encouraged and The Box welcomes Morning Show live cut-in opportunities from Houston's local news channels.

Also look out for the Madd Hatta feature story in the January 9th issue of Radio & Records Magazine.
"I look forward to Hatta's Elves each year." shares Madd Hatta. "This year is the biggest ever with 500 kids, tons of prizes and a lot of fun. I hope it's one of the Holiday moments each kid remembers for a long time to come."
