Bailey finished with a score of 138 in the 15-18 boys category. Grace Ni finished with a score of 143 in the 13-15 girls category.

Other champions included Jason Bryant for the 13-14 year old boys and Madison Kidd for the 16-18 year old girls. They finished with scores of 152 and 150, respectively.

With participation growing exponentially every year, the STPGA was glad to have the addition of Total Safety as a supporting sponsor for the championship.

“It’s a great thing whenever we can get additional sponsors for our junior events, but to have a local Houston-based company like Total Safety join in on the Bay Forest Junior Championship, it’s even better,” said STPGA Director of Junior Golf Thomas Hutton of the initial partnership.



Total Safety looks forward to working with STPGA in 2015.


Total Safety’s Charity Golf Tournament Benefits Three Charity Organizations

Total Safety donates to Sky High for St Jude

Total Safety, the world’s leading integrated safety services company, today announced that funds raised during its annual ‘Tee It Up for Charity’ golf tournament will benefit three non-profit organizations focused on improving the lives of families within their communities.

Proceeds from this year’s tournament went to:

  • Sky High for St. Jude, a volunteer organization that raises money on behalf of children undergoing pediatric cancer treatment and other life-threatening diseases at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Sky High is also the largest donor of the Ronald McDonald House at St. Jude, which serves patients and families staying for extended treatment. Please visit to learn more.
  • Combat Marine Outdoors, a non-profit organization with a mission to provide wounded Marines and other service members with once-in-a-lifetime outdoor adventures, promoting a sense of accomplishment, as well as one of hope and belonging. Please visit to learn more.
  • Krysta’s Karing Angels, a non-profit organization founded by a Total Safety employee that provides support to families affected by drunk driving. In addition, the organization generates awareness for its cause by taking crashed vehicles from actual accidents involving drivers that were driving while intoxicated (DWI) to schools, universities and other events, allowing people to see and hear the devastating effects caused by driving drunk. Please visit to learn more.

Total Safety’s clients and vendor partners participated in the tournament and contributed to the worthy cause. Some of the key sponsors included Enterprise Fleet Management, MSA, Warburg Pincus, BW Technologies and Crowe Horwath LLP. The tournament is always held just before the American Fuel and Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM) Maintenance and Reliability Conference.

“Total Safety has hosted this event for 16 years, and year after year, I am always inspired by the hospitality of our clients and sponsors. We are grateful to those who participated in the event. Their generosity has directly impacted our community and provided a number of worthy causes with resources they might not have had otherwise,” said Paul Tyree, Total Safety COO.

Total Safety Partners with Serve Moore to Support Victims of Devastating Oklahoma Tornado

Total Safety Supports Victims of Moore Oklahoma TornadoTotal Safety employees are supporting local efforts to aid and assist the victims of the devastating tornados that swept through Oklahoma in May. The company has sent volunteers to assist with clean up, along with truckloads of safety equipment and supplies, including hard hats, safety glasses, Tyvek® coveralls, respirators and gloves.

“Our Total Safety volunteers, working alongside the Serve Moore organization, will do their best to help insure safety in the communities where we work and live,” says Terrell Sosebee, Total Safety account manager.  “We know we are only a handful of the countless volunteers helping out, but we’re proud to contribute the time and equipment we can.”

The Serve Moore organization currently is in need of volunteers to clear up home sites, parks, and right of ways in Moore, Oklahoma. Two dozen people lost their lives, hundreds were injured, and thousands of individuals have lost their homes as a result of the EF5-rated tornado.

David Fanta, Total Safety CEO, expressed, “Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of this storm and their families. Our desire is to support relief efforts as best we can in hopes that we can lessen the burden on those affected.”

Houston, PA Team Partners with Girls Scouts to Help a Memorial Find Its Resting Place

Thanks to Total Safety’s Houston, Pennsylvania team and the Girl Scouts of West Pennsylvania, a 360-pound stone memorial will travel more than 1,000 miles to the final resting place of the U.S. Marine whose name it bears. The memorial in honor of Marine Cpl. David Eugene Hevle of Yankton, S.D., was discovered at the closed Camp Timberlake in Washington County by a volunteer. The camp was operated by Girl Scouts Western Pennsylvania until October 2012.

Since the discovery, media coverage helped solve the mystery of why the memorial was there, and shed light on Hevle’s connection to Girl Scouts.

Girl Scout troops who stayed at the camps sent care packages and letters to soldiers serving in the Vietnam War, and it is believed that Hevle was one of the Marines who received packages from or corresponded with the girls.

Hevle was killed on April 8, 1967 when his amphibian tractor hit a mine and exploded. The Girl Scouts who wrote to Hevle are thought to have created the stone memorial at Camp Timberlake.

More than 46 years after his death, the memorial will return to South Dakota. Girl Scouts and local veterans and military organizations will gather at Camp Timberlake, 2334 Beallsville Rd., in Marianna, on Saturday, April 13, at 1 p.m., for a special ceremony prior to the memorial’s departure. The public is welcome to attend.

  • This year’s tournament included additional incentives for tournament players, including:
    A chance to win $50,000 during a “shootout,” where four players from each course (the Palmer Course pictured left) were given the opportunity to sink a hole-in-one for $50,000
  • A 3-day, all expenses paid vacation get-a-way
  • Door prizes
  • Raffle prizes

Around 300 people participate in the annual golf tournament. This is the only fundraiser Total Safety has for Chamberlain-Hunt Academy; however, all of Total Safety’s facilities worldwide participate in community service activities and fundraising projects.
