DALLAS, April 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Breitling Energy Corporation (OTCBB:BECC) will present the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Ft. Worth with a $5,000 donation tomorrow at the 10th Annual North Texas Gas & Oil Crawfish Boil, held annually at River Ranch in the historic Ft. Worth Stockyards.
More than 4,000 oil and gas professionals, local Ft. Worth area civic leaders and the general public turn out for the event, which features live music, 7,000 pounds of boiled crawfish and other refreshments.
"Our industry has been down overall this year, and we were aware the sponsorship level wasn't what it was in the past. This is one of my favorite charities, and as a company we're happy to step up and contribute an additional donation to help this very worthwhile cause," said Chris Faulkner, Breitling Energy's Chairman and CEO. "There's no better investment than in our youth and the Boys and Girls Clubs has more grass roots programs to help underprivileged kids across America than anything I've found. We are happy to support such a good organization."
The Annual Crawfish Boil raised over $2 million for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Ft. Worth over the past nine years. Serving over 11,000 youth in North Texas, the organization focuses on academic success, healthy lifestyles and good citizenship for youth ages 6-24.
