HOUSTON, Oct. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Hart Energy partnered with the Boot Campaign, the Military Warriors Support Foundation, and Valero Texas Open to present a custom home to a U.S. Army veteran and his family. The formal presentation was made October 15 in front of more than 2,500 luncheon attendees at Hart Energy's 3rd annual DUG Eagle Ford conference at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio.
All funds for the donated home were raised at the DUG 2012 Golf Invitational held at The Resort Course at La Cantera on October 14. Now in its second year, the DUG tournament drew 100-plus golfers.
The donated home was just the beginning. Three Hart Energy customers — Newpark Drilling Fluids, Superior Energy Services, Inc., and Waste Management, Inc. — each donated a $5,000 gift card to help the family furnish its new home, which is located in Missouri City, Tex.
"Hart Energy salutes and thanks all our service members and their families who make daily sacrifices on our behalf," said CEO Richard A. Eichler. "Our continued support of the Boot Campaign and their charities is a small token of our appreciation to those we can never thank enough."
"The company is committed to a philanthropic program that supports its strategic business goals," Eichler said. "We invest in the quality of life in the communities where our employees work and live." In these efforts, Hart Energy's focuses on education, where it funds college scholarship programs, and supports the U.S. military and its veterans, where it has donated more than $250,000 in just the past three years.
