Leaders in the energy industry from Houston and across the country came together to support kids being treated at Texas Children’s Hospital. Houston-based Musket Corporation, the trading and logistics arm of the Love’s Family of Companies, and Trillium, a provider of alternative fuel systems and renewable fuels, hosted its sixth annual Drive for a Child (DFAC) golf fundraiser at Topgolf in Houston. Approximately 300 people from 74 companies who frequently work with Musket and Trillium attended the event that raised more than $290,000.
Since 2013, DFAC has raised more than $1.39 million for Texas Children’s, the local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. The annual event gives participants the unique opportunity to interact with a family benefiting from the dollars raised.
Grace Anto, 10, and her family golfed and met with attendees. Grace’s diagnoses include coronal suture craniosynostosis, a premature fusing of bones in the skull resulting in restricted skull growth. Grace has and will continue to have, multiple stays at Texas Children’s for various facial surgeries. Grace’s mother told the group how much their continued support means to them.
Texas Children’s is the largest children’s hospital in the United States and is recognized as a national leader in pediatric health. Support from companies like Musket Corp. and Trillium helps the organization continue its mission.
