Terry Bradshaw was Guest Speaker at October Meeting

10/22/2017

Picture
The meeting held on October 17, 2017 was the PVF Roundtable's biggest meeting to date.  Over 600 industry professionals attended the meeting which highlighted the annual scholarship awards and the Wholesaler's PVF Hall of Fame Award; and culminated with guest speaker Mr. Terry Bradshaw.

Scholarship awards were given to endowment schools Texas A&M University and University of Houston; and current use schools Lee College, San Jacinto College, and Houston Community College.  The PVF Roundtable impacts over 460 students at these schools and disbursed for the next school year $175,000.00 in scholarship funding.  This is an incredible accomplishment for PVF Roundtable members and volunteers.
 
The sponsor for Mr. Bradshaw was Wolseley Industrial Group and Ferguson Cares. We thank them for their incredible generosity. In addition to providing our guest speaker, Rob Braig on behalf of Ferguson Cares made a Scholarship Donation to the PVF Roundtable and was presented the 2017 PVF Hall of Fame Award by The Wholesaler.

Terry Bradshaw regaled meeting attendees with anecdotes from his personal life and career.  Examples of his leadership and enthusiasm both on and off the field were both inspirational and entertaining.  Bradshaw welcomed questions from the audience and did not disappoint with his well-known honesty and humor.

The success of the PVF Roundtable has continued due entirely to the generosity of our members, our sponsors and the countless hours put in by our volunteers at all of our events.   A special acknowledgement goes to PVF Board of Director Mr. Joe Costanzo of Wolseley Industrial Group for his role in securing Mr. Terry Bradshaw as our guest speaker.

2017 TroutBlast Tournament a Huge Success

This year's TroutBlast Tournament and dinner boasted record attendance in Matagorda, Texas.  Despite the area being hit hard by Hurricane Harvey this year, everything went according to plan.   

The TroutBlast Tournament is an event for the PVF industry to network and raise money for the PVF Scholarship Fund.   This year we had 344 fishermen and women and we raised over $50,000 for scholarships.  ?
