Bike Around the Bay 2021


On October  23-24, 2021, The Friends of the Phoenix our team will be riding around Galveston Bay in the 15th annual Bike Around the Bay cycling event. We are riding to support the most productive bay in Texas that provides habitat for more than one-third of all threatened and endangered species, produces more oysters than any other body of water in the United States, and supports vital industries like agriculture, tourism, and more.

Did you know that half the population of Texas lives within the Galveston Bay watershed? You can help make a difference in preserving and protecting the Bay right in our own backyards by making a tax-deductible donation to a rider on our team. Your contribution will support the Galveston Bay Foundation which works with all Bay users to preserve the beauty, tranquility, and health of Galveston Bay. Every donation, no matter the amount, helps create a better bay!



February Fried Rice Fundraiser

February Fried Rice Fundraiser

In light of the current COVID climate this year, FOTP has modified the 4th Lunar Festival into a Fried Rice Pop-up. Friends and supporters are encouraged to come to the Phoenix and or pick up fried rice for dine in, carryout, or drive in and eat in your vehicles.

We can take your To-Go orders the day of. Just DM us with your contact number and order!

$10 gets you fried rice made your way and a Vietnamese style eggroll.

This charity event will raise money for the FOTP emergency fund and Education pillar.

The Friends of the Phoenix is a nonprofit 501c(3) on a mission to give back to the greater Houston area. FOTP was founded by a group of friends who met through the Phoenix on Westheimer, a local pub.


Update March 25,2021
