2/24/2016 (Permalink)

Purse: $6,200,000 • Winning Share: $1,116,000

As stated on the Valero Texas Open's website, "The Valero Texas Open, first played in 1922, is the third oldest PGA TOUR tournament. It's only younger than the Western Open (1899) and Canadian Open (1904). If you include the U.S. Open (1895), managed by the PGA of America, then the Valero Texas Open is the fifth oldest professional tournament in North America. The Valero Texas Open is the oldest Professional Golf Tour tournament to have been held in the same city its entire existence. Every tournament (86) has been played in San Antonio Texas."

In 2016, the event will be held Thursday, April 21st through Sunday, April 24th, and SERVPRO of North Central Austin will be there every day. We are a proud sponsor in helping to raise money for charities!

A Smoke Free Texas

Doing our part for a "Smoke-Free Texas"

SERVPRO of North Central Austin is a supporter of "Smoke-Free Texas" (www.smokefreetexas.org) who is, in their own words, "a broad coalition of organizations and individuals who believe all Texas employees and customers have the right to breathe clean indoor air. Because science tells us secondhand smoke kills, we support a statewide smoke-free indoor workplace law to protect Texans from the dangers of secondhand smoke exposure in workplaces, including bars and restaurants. All employees should be protected from exposure to secondhand smoke in the workplace." To that end, SERVPRO of North Central Austin partnered with Create A Cig (www.createacig.com), an Austin born company, to provide Vapors & Electronic cigarettes to our employees, allowing us to be a smoke free, stink free, healthy workplace. We're doing our part to keep our employees happy and healthy, and our city beautiful!
