2019 Buckeye for Sky High Event Recap
A letter from Joe Sauger, SVP, GMT Operations & Engineering and Sky High Board Member.
Looking back on 2019 and our 3rd Annual Buckeye for Sky High Event, we had several noteworthy highlights. We were able to kick off the year in April with a visit to Texas Children’s Hospital with Buckeye leadership and many of our top sponsors to enjoy a day of learning and painting with patients who were undergoing treatment. In June, La Cantera Resort in San Antonio provided us with a beautiful venue to raise a record $1.2 million! A special thank you goes to our title sponsor, Tarsco, who stepped up in a big way as Sky High’s record highest event sponsor. Buckeye enjoyed hosting former NFL football player and Houston Texan, Devon Still, who was able to share his personal experience with pediatric cancer and his daughter Leah’s success story.”
No matter your level of support, your participation was and will be greatly appreciated by myself, the leadership here at Buckeye, Sky High, and the children fighting for their lives. Buckeye Partners is proud of the impact we are able to make together in the fight against pediatric cancer as a result of this event, and we are grateful for the time and resources that you set aside to be a part of this fight with us. With your contribution we are able to continue our mission of providing comfort, funding research, and saving lives of those fighting pediatric cancer and other life-threatening conditions. We hope to have your support again next year! San Antonio was good to us in 2019 but keep an eye out soon for details on our 2020 event – Buckeye for Sky High will be on the move.
