This year, we have the privilege of hosting daily hospitality events for our esteemed sponsor, Phillips 66. A dedicated Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo (HLSR) sponsor, Phillips 66 is eager to deepen its collaboration with our organization, not only locally but on a national scale as well. These events are vital opportunities to strengthen our relationship with Phillips 66 by engaging with their leadership and employees, ultimately fostering their continued support of our mission.

This event also serves as a significant platform in Texas for volunteer and outreach support.

Volunteer Roles: These events will require extensive preparation and outstanding execution with approximately 125 guests attending each event over the course of 5 days. We’re looking for volunteers to help with setup, prep, cooking, serving, and cleanup during these daily hospitality events. Your dedication and passion will shine as you show what Operation BBQ Relief is made of!
