"KBR is contributing $250,000 directly to front line workers that have sacrificed so much for our communities this year, and we're honored to stand shoulder to shoulder with these men and women."
Bradie continued, "KBR's young professionals always make the Charity Golf Tournament a tremendous success and this year is no different. 2020 has been challenging in so many ways, so it means a great deal to me, and to KBR, that we were able to move forward with this event and I am especially proud of the work our team put in to ensuring the safety of each participant."
The 14th annual tournament was held on Thursday, November 19, 2020 at Kingwood Country Club in Kingwood, Texas and featured extensive safety guidelines including a virtual auction and awards.
