Austin, TX (March 3, 2017)- Drillinginfo, the leading oil and gas analytics company, has once again earned the top “Business Fundraiser” for this this year’s Amplify Austin fundraising event. This marks the fifth year in a row that Drillinginfo and its employees have led local businesses in fundraising for the popular community event. Drillinginfo employees led all other participating companies with $106,208.17 in donations and 100 percent of employees again making contributions this year to the Stretch Fund that benefits all participating charities.
In February, Austin-based Drillinginfo rallied their employees in a company-wide effort to again participate in the 24-hour “festival of giving” that aims to help nonprofits meet critical needs. With more than 700 charitable non-profits involved, companies can participate in the “Business Fundraiser” category whereby company leadership encourages their own employees to open up and donate to the non-profits of their choice.
“Austin is Drillinginfo’s home and our company and its employees continue to be deeply ingrained in this unique city,” said Allen Gilmer, Co-founder, Chairman and CEO of Drillinginfo. “We live here. We give here,” he said.
“I’ve always thought the world of our team, but usually for their professionalism in our area of expertise, which happens to be energy analytics. But when you see something like this happen you pretty much stop, take a breath and swell up with pride” continued Gilmer. “We learned years ago when we first participated there was something special about our employees. It’s an honor to earn this recognition, but I can say with confidence on behalf of everyone at Drillinginfo, all credit goes to the organizers of Amplify Austin and the incredible work they do for our community,” concluded Allen.
Dave Piazza, Chief Financial Officer of Drillinginfo, added “I am really proud of all of our employees who have selflessly contributed to their favorite causes, both big and small, local as well as national. Coming together the way they all did on this day for Amplify Austin exemplifies Drillinginfo’s core value of ‘One Team.”‘
100 percent of Drillinginfo’s Austin employees participated in this year’s Amplify Austin and the event concluded the evening of Friday, March 3 raising more than $9.9 million for charitable non-profits in the community.
