Total Safety's Charity Golf Tournament Benefits Three Charity Organizations

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - Jun 28, 2013) - Total Safety, the world's leading integrated safety services company, today announced that funds raised during its annual 'Tee It Up for Charity' golf tournament will benefit three non-profit organizations focused on improving the lives of families within their communities.

Proceeds from this year's tournament went to:

  • Sky High for St. Jude, a volunteer organization that raises money on behalf of children undergoing pediatric cancer treatment and other life-threatening diseases at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Sky High is also the largest donor of the Ronald McDonald House at St. Jude, which serves patients and families staying for extended treatment. Please visit www.skyhighshoot.org to learn more.
  • Combat Marine Outdoors, a non-profit organization with a mission to provide wounded Marines and other service members with once-in-a-lifetime outdoor adventures, promoting a sense of accomplishment, as well as one of hope and belonging. Please visit www.combatmarineoutdoors.org to learn more.
  • Krysta's Karing Angels, a non-profit organization founded by a Total Safety employee that provides support to families affected by drunk driving. In addition, the organization generates awareness for its cause by taking crashed vehicles from actual accidents involving drivers that were driving while intoxicated (DWI) to schools, universities and other events, allowing people to see and hear the devastating effects caused by driving drunk. Please visit www.krystaskaringangels.com to learn more.

Total Safety's clients and vendor partners participated in the tournament and contributed to the worthy cause. Some of the key sponsors included Enterprise Fleet Management, MSA, Warburg Pincus, BW Technologies and Crowe Horwath LLP. The tournament is always held just before the American Fuel and Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM) Maintenance and Reliability Conference.

"Total Safety has hosted this event for 16 years, and year after year, I am always inspired by the hospitality of our clients and sponsors. We are grateful to those who participated in the event. Their generosity has directly impacted our community and provided a number of worthy causes with resources they might not have had otherwise," said Paul Tyree, Total Safety COO.
