HOUSTON — (August 2 2012) — Houston brand experience firm, BrandExtract, LLC, along with BoyarMiller, CultureMap and The Tasting Room, is proud to celebrate the success of this year’s Back To School with SEARCH campaign, which raised more than $28,000 in donations to purchase much-needed school uniforms for Houston children serviced by SEARCH Homeless Services.
