Derricks & Diamonds Softball Tournament

May 6 - May 7

Charity Softball Tournament benefiting pediatric cancer research at Texas Children’s Hospital and the Snowdrop Foundation.

About Derricks and Diamonds
Every school day, 36 children are diagnosed with cancer. Though survival rates continue to improve, pediatric
cancer remains the leading cause of non-accidental death for children in the US. Join National Oilwell Varco
and Schlumberger in the battle against pediatric cancer by participating in the 13th Annual Derricks & Diamonds
Charity Softball Tournament supporting Texas Children’s Hospital (TCH) and the Snowdrop Foundation.
Derricks & Diamonds unites the oil and gas industry to make strides toward eradicating pediatric cancer and
improving the lives of children suffering from the disease. Over the past 12 years, the tournament has raised
over $2.6 million dollars making it one of the most successful community events benefiting Texas Children’s
Cancer Center and the Snowdrop Foundation.
Derricks & Diamonds’ financial success depends on the generosity of its donors. For every $5,000 donated, a
company is allowed one 9-15 person co-ed softball team to participate in the Derricks & Diamonds Tournament,
in addition to the following valued benefits.

Use of Donations
100% of monetary donations made to Derricks & Diamonds are transferred directly to Texas Children’s Hospital
Cancer Center and Charity Care Program, while proceeds from the tournament’s raffle and silent auction
support the Snowdrop Foundation. Host companies, National Oilwell Varco and Schlumberger, shoulder the
tournament’s operating costs, so every dollar donated goes directly towards improving the lives and care of
children suffering from cancer.
