Welcome to Oil Patch Kids

Oil Patch Kids is part of a heritage that is uniquely West Texas; a heritage that was built on compassion, generosity and community fellowship. Thanks to the generous West Texas spirit and the investments of hundreds of supporters, corporations and volunteers, thousands of young lives have been forever changed.

Since its founding in 1994, Oil Patch Kids has raised over $875,000 to support at-risk children, right here in the Permian Basin. Some of the children served have been removed from their homes due to abuse and neglect, while others are considered to be at-risk and may come from single parent and low income families. Oil Patch Kids provides these children with necessities and opportunities to give them hope and a chance for change. These opportunities would not be made possible without the unwavering support of the local oil and gas community.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” - Margaret Mead, An American Cultural Anthropologist (1901-1978)

Dear Golfers, Volunteers and Supporters of the Oil Patch Kids,

I can’t believe it, our little “Pat” (as we fondly refer to the kid in our logo) is all grown up.  The Oil Patch Kids organization is now twenty years old.   That means that for twenty years now folks like you have been making an impact in the lives of children.  Thanks to all our supporters for the 2013 tournament we were able to distribute over $138,000 to 29 different organizations in the Permian Basin that support children from all walks of life.  We want you to know that without your support, we could not have done this.  In the past 19 years, we have raised a combined $850,000.  Since 2014 will be a special year for us, our goal is to hit the One Million dollar mark.  With your support I know we will be able to do that.   We are already off to a great start as we hosted our first ever Casino Night in February.  During that event, we raised over $30,000! 

As we head into our 20th year for the golf tournament, we have an exciting announcement.  Due to growth of the Oil Patch Kids Invitational Golf Tournament, we are expanding our tournament to two courses of play this year.   Hogan Park Golf Course will host us again and we will be playing both Quail and Roadrunner for AM and PM! This expansion will help us to accommodate more players, have faster play and in turn make a bigger impact in our community. 

The year’s tournament will be held July 18th & 19th and registration is under way.  Please visit our website at www.oilpatchkids.org to register your team today!  For more information on teams or sponsorships please call Heather Godfrey 432-269-4148 or Susan McHughes 432-352-4196


We look forward to seeing you there!
