Gexa Energy Underwrites Retail Space In Uptown Park For Children’s Art Project Boutique

HOUSTON, TX - December 14, 2009 

At a time when non-profit organizations are struggling to cover their expenses and raise funds for worthwhile causes, Gexa Energy has announced it is joining AmReit to underwrite retail space at Uptown Park for The Children’s Art Project Boutique, the first retail location dedicated exclusively to merchandising original artwork of young cancer patients at The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. 

The Children’s Art Project Boutique, open Monday – Saturday from 10 am – 6 pm, offers a variety of seasonal note cards and gift items decorated with the original artwork of young cancer patients at M. D. Anderson. The store also merchandises ornaments, books, ceramic plates and mugs, t-shirts, tote bags, wrapping paper and gift tags, note cards and more. 

Besides underwriting the Uptown Park space, Gexa Energy is donating $25 to the Children’s Art Project for every new residential customer who signs up for the company’s six-month, 12-month or 24-month electricity service plan under the M. D. Anderson Cancer Center Children’s Art Project promotion. Gexa Energy’s fixed rate plans guarantee the commodity portion of the rate for the term of the plan. 

Customers can participate by visiting and clicking on the “Support a Great Cause” tab. Or, customers can call Gexa Energy at (866) 961-9399 and mention the promotion code, MDACAP. 

For more than 35 years, the Children’s Art Project at The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center has made life better for children with cancer. Through worldwide sales of young cancer patients’ original artwork featured on seasonal note cards and gift items, the project has returned more than $26 million to programs that benefit cancer patients and their families.
