Boys Town Louisiana Receives Major Gift From Valero

Darrell Johnson, Development Director, Boys Town Louisiana

Boys Town Louisiana was chosen by Valero for the 6th year as one of their local children charities to receive a generous donation of $20,000.

Darrell Johnson, Development Director, Boys Town Louisiana, attended Valero's Annual Children's Charity Luncheon representing Boys Town Louisiana to receive the gift.  

This year Valero raised $12 million through the Valero Texas Open to be distributed to charities across the United States. The all-time total raised for this year's PGA TOUR was $138 million, making it one of the most charitable tournaments of the PGA TOUR.

The charities that receive donations are nominated by Valero employees every year.

"This donation profoundly impacts our work of saving children and healing families in Louisiana," said Darrell. "Thanks to generous community partners in 2017 we were able to provide services for 381 youth and 220 families, as well as hire additional staff."

Boys Town would like to extend many thanks to Jerry Stumbo, VP and General Manager of Valero St. Charles Refinery. Additionally, we'd like to thank both Taryn Rogers and Cherie Scioneaux for their special dedication to Boys Town Louisiana's mission over the years.
