The Valero Texas Open is widely known for their many charitable fundraising efforts. This year, First Connect was proud to be one of the sponsors of the 2015 Valero Texas Open. In the months leading up to the Valero Texas Open, there are two main fundraising programs that are focused on. The Birdies for Charity fundraising program is designed to give participating charities and schools the opportunity to generate contributions through the Valero Texas Open. Birdies for Charity is a no-cost program that gives 100% of the funds raised back to the participating organizations. The funds are generated by soliciting pledges from individuals and corporations for every “birdie” made throughout the Open.
In addition to Birdies for Charity, the Valero Texas Open, is designed to focus on improving the lives of children nationwide through the Valero Texas Open Benefit for Children Golf Classic. The Benefit for Children Golf Classic started as a small golf tournament to benefit a San Antonio charity. It has since grown into a nationwide project coupled with the Valero Energy Foundation and has proudly delivered millions of dollars to children’s charities across the United States since the Valero’s title sponsorship began in 2002. The Valero Texas Open’s mission has always been about the children and together with the generosity of their sponsors, have distributed funding to children’s charities in the communities where Valero has major operations. The result is a network of strong, well-supported agencies with the means to help thousands of disadvantaged, abused and neglected children. First Connect Insurance along with The Valero Texas Open Benefit for Children Golf Classic is proud to partner with these agencies to make a lasting difference in children’s lives.
