“Flint Hills Resources is proud to sponsor the 22nd annual Flights of Angels Golf Tournament,” said Valerie Pompa, vice president of manufacturing for Flint Hills Resources. “HALO-Flight, the only nonprofit air ambulance in South Texas, is an integral part of providing emergency medical services in this region. Our company’s continued support of this vital fund-raising effort is another way we back efforts that improve the quality of life in the Coastal Bend.”
The 2012 tournament grossed more than $117,000 for the nonprofit air ambulance service. Flint Hills Resources’ continued support of Flights of Angels has resulted in proceeds of more than $1.2 million in the last 12 years.
“We appreciate the long-term commitment from Flint Hills Resources and their support of HALO-Flight’s mission,” said Tom Klassen, executive director of HALO-Flight. “Support from our South Texas community helps fund a generous portion of our operational costs.”
