Over $300,000 in Scholarships

Originating in the late 1970’s, local societies that served members in the oil and gas industry would get together at the Coalition Blowout, to network and have a great time. Sometime in the 1980s, the event stopped being held.

The Coalition Blowout was resurrected in 2008 with a bigger and better purpose. The volunteers from the local societies now band together to throw a party to honor and celebrate the people that make the oil and gas industry great.
