Black Elk Energy holds West Delta 32 fundraiser

Offshore staff

HOUSTON – Black Elk Energy Offshore Operations reports that it has successfully hosted the West Delta 32 charity event, designed to assist the families of workers injured or killed in the accident on the platform last November.

Black Elk Energy and Oilfield Helping Hands teamed up to host a special tribute sporting clay shoot for the six families affected by the incident. The sold-out event was held on March 15 at the GOL Shooting Range in Maurice, Louisiana. 

Net proceeds from the fundraiser will be used to establish a higher education fund for the children of the victims. As a result of the charitable contributions and personal efforts made by members of the energy industry, Black Elk Energy and Oilfield Helping Hands were able to donate more than $130,000 for this cause.
