More than 500 golfers participated in the popular tournament, which was supported by approximately 150 sponsors and nearly 90 Halliburton volunteers. Held over a two-day period for the first time, the record amount raised this year brings the 20-year total to approximately $8.5 million that has been given to charities dedicated to an array of causes.

“It’s been a rewarding two days for us,” said Dave Lesar, Halliburton Chairman, President and CEO. “We could not have achieved this 20-year milestone or record donation amount without the participation and support of our sponsors and employee volunteers. It’s a remarkable feeling to be able to help the charity recipients in an even bigger way this year.”

The Tournament contribution to Kids’ Meals Houston will support the nonprofit organization’s goal to end hunger among children by delivering nutritious meals to the doors of children in need, free of cost, every weekday year round. Currently, the staff and volunteers deliver more than 1,700 lunches per day, but hundreds of children are on the waiting list.

Another beneficiary of The Tournament proceeds is the Justin J. Watt Foundation in support of after-school opportunities for middle-school children. To date, the foundation has provided funds to 46 different programs to help students learn the basic character traits of accountability, teamwork, leadership, work ethic and perseverance while in a safe and supervised environment with their peers.

Other charities that shared the proceeds from The Tournament are:

  • The American Heart Association – Houston
  • The Astros Foundation (Houston)
  • Driscoll Children's Hospital (Corpus Christi, Texas)
  • Dynamo Charities (Houston)
  • Freedom Service Dogs (Englewood, Colorado)
  • Greens Bayou Corridor Coalition (Houston)
  • Holocaust Museum Houston
  • Houston Area Women's Center
  • Houston Police Foundation
  • Justin J. Watt Foundation (Houston and Pewaukee, Wisconsin)
  • Kids' Meals (Houston)
  • Mercy Medical Foundation (Williston and Dickinson, North Dakota)
  • North Central Pennsylvania Red Cross
  • Small Steps Nurturing Center (Houston)
  • St. Joseph's Hospital Foundation (Dickinson, North Dakota)
  • Star of Hope Mission (Houston)
  • The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center (Houston)
  • Village Learning and Achievement Center – Village at Hickory Glen (Houston-Kingwood)

The Tournament is only part of the company’s annual charitable fundraising focus each year to help positively impact communities where it does business.

On Oct. 1, Halliburton launched its annual workplace giving campaign called “Giving Choices.” The campaign kicks off every October for employees in the United States, Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, India, Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia. For employees in seven Middle Eastern countries, the campaign takes place during the month of Ramadan.

Employees participate in “Giving Choices” by generously pledging donations toward the charities of their choice. In 2012, Halliburton employees globally pledged more than $3.4 million to assist their local communities.
