Event Overview:


The Houston based FFFFF fund raising event was established in 2004. Near 100 cooking teams will be competing and serving food from hors d’oeuvres, salads, soups, gumbo, entrees to deserts. The teams will be judged by a select panel containing a number of nationally known chefs. The evening will be filled with great fun, food and fellowship along with adult beverages and door prizes valued in the 10's of thousands of dollars (with most geared to toward the wives and the ladies of our industry).


Proceeds from the FFFFF event helps support the AADE activities and the Knowledge Box program as well as other educational initiatives. The Knowledge Box program is administered for AADE by the Education Director of the Offshore Energy Center in Galveston and is designed to provide educators a forum to effectively present the petroleum industry and to inform students of the vast career opportunities in the field. It is a mobile exhibit showcasing the many aspects of the oil and gas industry and includes teacher resources, hands-on activities and interactive lessons.
