About Us


The Belles of Houston is an elite group of women dedicated to raising funds to help support The Lone Survivor Foundation. Since our inception in 2010, we have raised more than $350,000 to help restore hope for wounded service members and their families.

We come from all walks of life, but we all have found commonalities in the mission that we serve: to engage the power, wisdom, and generosity of women within the energy sector to increase networking opportunities through philanthropy. The promise to do good begins with the spirit of caring and empathy. I truly believe service connects us to those we serve and gives us a kind of satisfaction that self-interest can never offer.

The long-term benefits since becoming a Belle are endless but include a continuing development of how to work with other powerful women, the opportunity to create life-long friendships and the ability to raise money for a wonderful organization such as The Lone Survivor Foundation. Our annual events: Belles Bugs & BBQ and The Belles of the Ball Christmas Gala both provide us with the avenues for our fundraising endeavors.

So, how do we fuel this journey? With patience and perseverance and through partnerships with individuals and sponsors who share our mission, passion and determination to make meaningful, systemic change within our community. And with great humility and unwavering commitment, we are determined to do better every year.

As we begin our 10th year of serving the Houston area, we celebrate the accomplishments and progress that have only been possible because of all of you. The backing and partnership of our generous community has allowed The Belles of Houston to have a significant impact in a very short time. We couldn’t undertake this important work without you as we expand the safety net of services and support for our veterans, and we remain, as always, grateful beyond all measure.

To the individuals and businesses who have supported us over the years, I cannot thank you enough. I am so excited about the work we are doing, the impact it is having, and what our future holds.

Since 2010

The Belles were formed in the winter of 2010, when Brandy Roberts had the creative vision to bring a group of women together to network and support each other for success in the oil and gas industry. There were five original women that planned the first event to kick-off the organization. With much success, the Belles soon were hosting multiple events per year and quickly realized that there was a great opportunity to harness this energy for a bigger purpose…one that was felt by all could truly bring awareness to the cause and make a difference in the lives we could touch with our many blessings.

Our Future

From there began the evolution of what we now refer to as The Belles of Houston (TBOH)… which has developed over the last 10 years into a successful 501-c3 non-profit with a strong network of women associated with the oil & gas industry. We strive to Empower Women in our industry for Success and give our full fundraising support to honor our veterans and first responders through a partnership with the Lone Survivor Foundation.

In Honor of our Heroes We will Never Quit on those who NEVER QUIT on us! They voluntarily choose to protect us every day so we can live and work freely in this great nation…we volunteer in support of them!! God Bless the USA!

Who We Stand For
