MaxHome is honored to be a community sponsor of the annual Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™ in 2023. This event, which has been held annually since 1932, showcases Western heritage, features live music and other entertainment, and is an essential piece of educating the public on livestock, ranching, and wildlife. It also raises funds for ongoing educational support in our community—and we’re proud to support an organization that has granted over $575 million to Texas youth and education.
