Specs Charitable Foundation Partners

Spec's At Home & In Our Community


Spec's Charitable Foundation

As a tribute to our founders, we created a charitable foundation, the Spec's Charitable Foundation, specifically for education purposes. We are quite proud of all those that have benefited from our work.

  • Spec's is a founding sponsor of the University of Houston Hilton School of Hotel and Restaurant Management. Once a year a huge golf tournament is held with the Hilton School Wine and Spirits Institute as our beneficiary. We have been instrumental in many scholarships and even an endowed professorship in the Beverage Management program.
  • In our continued effort to support our employees and their families, Spec's has partnered with the Catholic Diocese of Galveston & Houston to provide for the education of our employee's children. We provide for the Catholic School education of the children of our employees.
  • We are also proud to have a full ride scholarship to the University of North Texas. To date we have had over 100 students take part in our educational opportunities.
  • As a tribute to our 2nd generation owners and their love of music, Spec's is also a lifetime underwriter of the famous One O Clock Lab Band at the University of North Texas.
  • The Foundation's largest fundraising event is Vintage Virtuoso, which benefits the Houston Symphony's educational programs. Over the past 13 years over $2 million has been raised to bring music education to the children of Houston.

Spec's Cork Project

Spec's has been working with Nomacorc, a cork recycling company, in an effort to collect corks that will in turn be used for "up-sale" items. This keeps trash out of landfills and as an added bonus, $ .04 per cork will be donated to the Stehlin Foundation, a cancer research firm in Houston. To Date over 300,000 corks have been recycled!
