2014 Dallas CASA Classic Golf Tournament Contributes $1.7 Million To Help Abused Children In Dallas

Pioneer Natural Resources, Goldman Sachs and AT&T joined forces Monday, April 28, 2014, to host the Dallas CASA Classic, benefitting Dallas CASA, an organization that provides advocates in court for abused children. The three hosts presented a check to Dallas CASA for $1.7 million, the largest proceeds to date from a one-day charity golf tournament in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

Scott Sheffield, Chairman and CEO of Pioneer, said, “We are honored to co-host this golf tournament for such a worthy cause. Pioneer has been a champion of Dallas CASA for many years. By teaming with Goldman Sachs and AT&T, we have been able to expand the tournament to involve more participants and provide greater funding for CASA to increase their trained volunteer base with a goal of serving all abused children in Dallas by 2019. We are very grateful to our generous business partners for their participation and to the hundreds of employee volunteers who made this tournament a success, thus providing hope for children in foster care.”

Beverly Levy, Executive Director and President of Dallas CASA, commented, “Every day we see firsthand the terrible impact of abuse and neglect on children. Each one of these children needs an advocate to make sure they find a safe home where they can thrive. The Dallas CASA Classic is the single largest source of support for our program and our children. The event provides critical funding to recruit and support the volunteer advocates who help ensure that abused children are safe and protected. Pioneer Natural Resources, Goldman Sachs, AT&T and their business associates are evidence that there are good people willing to support these children. Through their remarkable efforts, we are well on our way to making sure that no child will have to face an overwhelmed child welfare system alone.”

“We are excited to partner with Pioneer Natural Resources and AT&T and will continue to extend our support to CASA in their mission of helping Dallas’ most at-risk children,” said Tom Dowling, Goldman Sachs partner and head of the Irving office. “Through the commitment of our business partners and employees, we help provide abused children with a powerful voice in court to enable them to find safe and healthy home environments.”
