PLM Canton recently coordinated a fund raising effort in the Canton Ohio office to benefit the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank and their annual Harvest for Hunger campaign. “Harvest for Hunger” is a partnership between four food banks that serve 21 counties in Ohio. This particular campaign is the Foodbank’s largest and it helps to support food distribution for the organization all year long. By contributing to this cause they were able to assist the 1 in 4 children or the 1 in 7 individuals in Foodbank’s service area who struggle with hunger. Every $1 raised helped to provide 4 meals for a person in need. The PLM Canton office set a group goal to raise $300 in monetary donations, in addition to 50 lbs of food. They’re pleased to announce that they far-exceeded our goal and ended up raising $326 and additional 289 lbs of food!
The MLBC Golf Event was held at Oglebay Resort, just outside of Wheeling, West Virginia. It raised $22,000 for the WVU Children’s Hospital and Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, bringing the 8 year total of the event to more than $175,000 donated. Several of our clients played in the event; Gulfport, NNE, RRC, and EQT. The winning team consisted of a few of our former client landmen from EQT. Our team finished middle of the pack, but was respectable and everyone had a great time. One client made an 80 foot putt. Rick Gillette ate 47 chicken wings in 25 minutes, and only stopped because the server refused to serve him, stating “you’ve had enough sir”.
Purple Land Management recently participated in Oklahoma City’s largest event of the year- The OCAPL Golf Tournament at Oaktree Country Club. David Brooks, Gene Vallandingham and Arthur Medina represented PLM at the event, and they even had some success in tournament play. Gene Vallandingham won a “closest to the pin” award, while David Brooks won the long-drive competition and the tournament’s most handsome award. Medina’s team finished in the top 3, posting a score of 59. The Playbook Committee was able to get a few comments about the event from Gene Vallandingham. This is what he had to say. “The Oklahoma City oil and gas community is a very tight-knit community, and events of this nature are very special to the folks of Oklahoma City. It does seem to be an alumni event for those who graduated from Big 12 schools, and I hope to see more SEC alum in the years to come. All in all, it was a great event for our team to connect with the 100 plus contacts that came out. Press on!”

Purple Land Management – Corporate has finally made the big move into the historic Winfield Place building, located at 210 East 8th Street in downtown Fort Worth. Originally designed as the very first parking garage in Fort Worth in 1919, the building features exposed brick walls, high ceilings, and concrete floors. The centerpiece of the building is the old freight car elevator, which PLM has converted into an elevator conference room. After months of planning and remodeling Purple is excited to make this old building our new home!
