2015 Valero Benefit for Children
The 2015 Valero Benefit for Children, the Valero Energy Foundation's annual charitable fundraiser focusing on children in need, began Sunday, March 29, with an extraordinary Welcome Party at the fabulous JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa immediately following the conclusion of the Valero Texas Open. It continued on Monday, March 30, with golf outings on 11 of San Antonio’s top courses, including both the Greg Norman and Pete Dye courses at the beautiful TPC San Antonio, and a Sporting Clays Tournament at San Antonio's "National Shooting Complex."

It's All About the Children

What began in 1996 as a small golf tournament to benefit a local San Antonio charity is today a nationwide effort to improve the lives of children. The Valero Benefit for Children, a project of the Valero Energy Foundation*, has proudly delivered millions of dollars to children’s charities across the U.S. since Valero became title sponsor of the PGA TOUR's Texas Open tournament in 2002. Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, funds are distributed 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. The Valero Benefit for Children is proud to partner with these agencies to make a lasting difference in children’s lives.

*The Valero Energy Foundation is a tax-exempt public charity under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
