Please take a moment to read about Billy’s experience with Spindletop!⁠

How Billy Began His Journey with Spindletop⁠
“My first exposure to Spindletop was through the Spindletop Golf Tournament. The camaraderie of the attendees was contagious, and I was impressed by the direct impact to the beneficiary organizations at the tournament. I was hooked!”⁠

Why Spindletop Is Special to Billy⁠
“In a unique way, Spindletop Charities harnesses the power & influence of the energy industry’s value chain to directly improve the lives of at-risk youth in Houston. The mission to target at-risk youth lands on a value my family holds dear, and what makes Spindletop really special is the instant ability to create tangible, positive impact at multiple charities supporting this mission while broadening your network in the energy industry.”⁠

Billy’s Favorite Spindletop Activities and Memory⁠
“There are too many activities and events to list out. I love the direct engagement with the charities. The Spindletop events are always so well-orchestrated and bring together such a great group of folks, so there is never a dull moment. But my favorite memory is when the Emerging Leader Steering Committee did our first retreat to formalize our strategy. A group of strangers left as friends unified, committed and energized to carry the mission forward and grow our impact. It’s been great to see the plan play out.”
