HOUSTON – Oct. 18, 2017 – The 23rd annual Halliburton Charity Golf Tournament raised more than $2.5 million for 24 nonprofit organizations across Houston and the U.S. The tournament, held Oct. 18, has donated almost $14 million to charities over its 23-year history.
More than 400 golfers participated in the fundraiser held at Topgolf in Spring, Texas, instead of its previously planned location at The Clubs of Kingwood, which suffered damage from Hurricane Harvey. More than 100 sponsors supported the event.
"The spirit of the Halliburton Charity Golf Tournament is to provide funding to charities in the Houston area and across the U.S.," said Jeff Miller, Halliburton president and CEO. "We moved forward with our tournament, despite the logistical challenges of an alternative location, because we know that the funds raised are vitally important to the more than 24 recipient organizations, including the Houston-based charities that can use the donations in their Harvey recovery efforts."
This year’s golf tournament beneficiaries are:
