Members of Austin Professional Landmen’s Association (APLA) and the Austin Petroleum Exploration Society (APES) understand that philanthropy goes hand-in-hand with their membership.  While events throughout the year provide networking opportunities for petroleum oil and gas members, they also include fun ways for the industry to come together and make a difference in a variety of nonprofits.  For the third year, members are raising funds through their annual golf tournament to help the Food Bank nourish hungry Central Texans.   This popular event sells out early and has doubled its fundraising for the Food Bank each year.  An ambitious goal of $20,000 is set for this year’s tournament’s 272 players and 38 sponsors.

We wish the participants heading out to the Barton Creek Country Club Fazio and Crenchaw Golf Course good luck this Friday, warm sunny weather, and a cure for the common slice.

A special thank you goes to Title Sponsor, Statoil.
