Celebrating its 23rd year, the annual Chevron Phillips Charity Golf Tournament was a success again. This year, nearly $200,000 was raised to support vulnerable children and families in Southeast Texas through the tournament hosted at Bayou Din in Beaumont, Texas.
Since 1999, the annual tournament has raised more than $3.6 million to help Buckner meet the needs of vulnerable children through the local programs available in the area: foster care and adoption, FAYS, Project HOPES and the FYi center.
“Chevron Phillips has been dedicated to ensuring that each year, the golf tournament is a success,” shared Laura May, executive director of Buckner Children and Family Services in Beaumont. “Their commitment to helping us serve the children and families of our community has been going strong for 23 years. We are so blessed to have them collaborate with us.”
The event was held on Sept. 24. To celebrate the joint efforts, volunteers and members of both Buckner and Chevron Phillips gathered after the tournament to celebrate the amount raised. With limited sponsorships, reduced teams and no auction this year for COVID-19 safety, the golf tournament was still quite the success.
“The team members of Chevron Phillips have a heart for what we do and are always interested to hear how what they do benefits children and families in our community,” said Jeff Ross, senior executive director, Southeast Texas.
The longstanding tradition between Chevron Phillips and Buckner continues to blossom and look to the future of continuing to work together.
