Valero Energy Foundation Presents $ 260,000 to Harbor Area Organizations Benefiting Children
Wilmington, California, November 4th, 2016 – Hundreds of Harbor area children and their families will benefit from the success of the 2016 Valero Texas Open and Benefit for Children Golf Classic, one of the oldest and most prestigious tournaments on the PGA TOUR held earlier this year in San Antonio. Locally, Valero officials announced that in November they will distribute $260,000 of the tournament proceeds to benefit a dozen Harbor area children’s organizations which include, the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Los Angeles Harbor, Wilmington YMCA, Gang Alternatives Program (GAP), International Trade Education Programs (ITEP), Long Beach Boys and Girls Clubs, Toberman San Pedro Neighborhood Center, United Wilmington Youth Foundation, and Ronald McDonald House in Long Beach. For the 14th consecutive year, with the great support from the company’s business partners, the 2016 Valero Texas Open and Benefit for Children Golf Classic resulted in a tremendously successful fundraiser and will provide an outstanding contribution to hundreds of children’s charities throughout Valero’s nationwide business region.
