When you come from a home that is virtually nothing, you have an appreciation for the less fortunate things in life and for that reason, Tony Petrello knows what it is like and vows to help others who are also less fortunate.
Since Tony Petrello has become the CEO of Nabors Industries, he has done remarkable things to ensure that others who face certain circumstances have support behind them to help when the times are tough. For the employees of Nabors Industries, they have been lucky enough to have experienced this first hand. During the Hurricane Harvey time period, the employees of Nabors suffered from the damages caused by the hurricane. When the storm was over and the flood waters drew back, the homes of the Nabors employees needed to be repaired. That is when Tony Petrello helped to ensure that the employees would have the time they needed to help rebuild as well as the means to do so.
The employees were granted paid time off in order to help rebuild their lives and homes. Not only were the employees receiving paid time off, they also had help by other employees who raised funds to help the employees who were affected. That is when Tony Petrello offered his help to also raise funds to support the employees. The money that was raised by the employees was then matched by Tony Petrello.
Tony Petrello has a passion for the arts as much as he does for helping others. For this reason, the Petrello family has held a gathering for the Broadway Star, Tommy Tune. When Tommy returned to his hometown of Houston, he was greeted by fans and also a party sponsored by Tony and Cynthia Petrello. At the party, Tommy was greeted by 50 invited guests.
Aside from the love of arts, the Petrello Family has also offered their help to raise funds to help the Texas Children’s Hospital. The Petrello family has dealt with their own medical problems stemming from the premature delivery of their daughter Carena. When she was born, she developed a typical health concern that most babies who are born prematurely suffer from. Since then, the Petrello family is set to help others to learn about the health concerns that come with prematurity and to help others who are faced with the same problems learn how to cope. Since Carena was born so early on, she developed Cerebral Palsy which is another thing that the Petrello family hopes to one day find a cure for by donating as much as they can to the childrens hospital to help fund research.
