The Brian Ching testimonial match held on Dec. 13, 2013 raised $130,000 for the House that Ching Built and Houston Habitat for Humanity.

According to a release, the money was raised through a series of events celebrating the career of Ching, the retired Dynamo forward. The house, which is under construction, will benefit the Garcia-Andrade family of Houston's North East side.

“It all started with our ownership group and BBVA Compass, and I can’t thank them enough for setting such an amazing example,” Ching said. “I’m always overwhelmed by the generosity of our fans. I want to thank all volunteers who donated their time to put together such an amazing event.   I especially want to thank my mother and my aunts who made over 4,000 leis to help raise funds for this project.  They were a huge success.  For all those who donated their time and money, I would just like to say mahalo.”
