Oilfield Helping Hands (OHH), a nonprofit charitable organization composed of volunteers devoted to providing financial assistance to oilfield workers in financial crisis, has been named the 2017 beneficiary of the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) Distinguished Achievement Awards Luncheon.
OTC will hold the Distinguished Achievement Awards Luncheon on 2 May 2017 at NRG Center in Houston. The event recognizes industry achievements, raises funds for a chosen organization, and provides an excellent opportunity for industry leaders to network with colleagues from around the world.
Joe Fowler, chairman of the OTC Board of Directors, said, “We’re proud to name Oilfield Helping Hands as this year’s beneficiary. The event’s Executive Advisory Board was most impressed by the organization’s commitment to helping families that have been a part of our industry and have hit hard times.
“Specifically, Oilfield Helping Hands assists families in financial crisis due to medical and other serious circumstances. It works diligently to keep costs low to ensure as much money as possible can go directly toward benefitting the families,” Fowler continued.
Gregory Rachal, president of OHH, said, “The OTC Distinguished Achievement Awards Luncheon does more than just support great causes in the industry, it also raises awareness about them. We’re beyond proud that Oilfield Helping Hands has been chosen as this year’s beneficiary and know this honor will have a positive impact on the lives and wellbeing of several worthy families in need. To date, we have distributed more than USD 3.3 million to hundreds of families across the US. Thanks to OTC, we are confident that we’ll be able to support even more oilfield families experiencing financial crisis.”
