Houston, Texas (PRWEB) June 19, 2017

Total Safety, a leading global provider of integrated industrial safety services, recently hosted its 20th Annual “Helping Heroes Charity Golf and Sporting Clays Tournament,” and donated more than $210,000 in proceeds to three benefiting charities: Combat Marine Outdoors, Sky High, and Krysta’s Karing Angels. The tournament was held on Tuesday, May 23, 2016 in New Orleans. Since its inception in 1988, the event has raised and donated more than $1,000,000 in cumulative proceeds for the benefiting charities.

What started as a small, four-team tournament in 1988 has grown to become one of the industries’ premiere charity tournaments in the south, featuring both golf and sporting clays events, with more than 75 teams and 300+ participants. Proceeds from tournament sponsorships help support “heroes” whose mission is to improve the lives of wounded veterans, children suffering from cancer and other life-threatening diseases, and families who have lost a loved one to a drunk driver.

“I am extremely grateful for the generous support of our loyal sponsors and this incredibly philanthropic industry,” says Paul Tyree, Chief Operating Officer for Total Safety. “The Helping Heroes Charity Golf and Sporting Clays Tournament not only brings together industry leaders and organizations for a day of networking and recreation, it also has purpose and meaning. Supporting our local communities is core to our values at Total Safety, and I am humbled and honored by the way in which this event has been embraced over the years. Together, we are making a real difference in the lives of others, and that’s a powerful connection to share.”

The Helping Heroes Charity Golf Tournament 2017 major sponsors included: MSA, Sunbelt Rentals, Industrial Scientific, Ansell, Littlejohn LLC, JOB Industrial Services, Valero, Accendo International, HollyFrontier, Citizens Commercial Banking, PSC and more. The Sporting Clays portion of the tournament was added for the first time in 2017 in an effort to expand tournament reach; major sponsors included Industrial Scientific, Sunbelt Rentals, Monroe Energy, Scott Safety, FlexTek Resources, ELF Freight, Rapid MEQ, and many others.
