Halliburton golf tournament sets new charity fundraising record


HOUSTON -- The 22nd annual Halliburton Charity Golf Tournament raised a record of more than $3 million for 43 nonprofit organizations across the U.S., making it one of the largest non-PGA golf tournament fundraisers in Texas. The tournament, held Oct. 13 and today, surpassed last year's record of $2.4 million, and has donated almost $14 million to charities over its 22-year history.

More than 500 golfers participated in the popular two-day tournament, supported by about 200 sponsors and more than 100 Halliburton volunteers.

"At Halliburton, we take our commitment to helping the communities where we live and work seriously," said Dave Lesar, Halliburton chairman and CEO. "We are thrilled to give over $3 million to advance the mission of this year's recipient organizations and thank the participants, sponsors and volunteers who give their time and resources year after year to ensure the tournament's success."
