It’s a year-long culmination of philanthropic events, including: the charity Softball Tournament, the Field of Dreams Benefit, the Snowdrop Raffle, and additional fundraising events.

Use of Donations

100% of monetary donations made to Derricks & Diamonds are transferred directly to Texas Children’s Cancer and Hematology Center, while proceeds from the tournament's raffle and silent auction support the Snowdrop Foundation. NOV Inc. shoulders the tournament's operating costs so every dollar donated goes directly towards improving the lives of children living with cancer.
