Houston family, businesses benefit from World Series win

HOUSTON (AP) The Houston Astros' World Series win has not only given an emotional boost to a city still recovering from Hurricane Harvey. It has provided an economic lift as well.

For one Houston family, the championship run gave them a way to financially help their grandparents rebuild after the devastating storm. Brianne Bueno's family bought two tickets for Game 3 of the World Series in Houston but didn't use them.

The family raffled them on Facebook and raised about $10,000. That money will be used to repair the Houston-area home of Bueno's grandparents.
