CenterPoint Energy sponsored the 12th Annual Charity Saltwater Fishing Tournament in partnership with industry leaders in the transmission & distribution construction companies including PLH Group business units Edison Power and Air2, LLC. Held at the Doyle Convention Center in Texas City, the charity event was truly a day to remember. The fundraising event was filled with a day of fishing, entertainment and good old industry comradery. Moreover, CenterPoint worked tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure a good time was had by all.
