Nov. 27, 2006 – Bret L. Boteler, president of EnerMax, Inc. (http://www.enermaxinc.com) announced today his plans to allocate a portion of the proceeds from oil and gas operations to the Happy Hill Farm Academy/Home. At the end of each quarter, EnerMax will donate five percent of the income from all producing wells in which it has ownership and a development interest. These funds will have a direct impact on the lives of at risk children through assistance with food, clothing, shelter and educational costs.
Happy Hill Farm was founded by Ed and Gloria Shipman in 1975. In a personal encounter with two teen aged runaways, the Shipman’s recognized the need for a safe haven for children in crisis. As a result they opened their doors to provide socially and academically disadvantaged adolescents with the opportunity to live, work, and study in a year-round, residential school/farm setting. Mr. Boteler, expounding on his motivation behind this heartfelt gesture explains “I believe that Mr. Shipman and the staff at the Happy Hill Farm are nothing short of amazing and I am honored that EnerMax can play a positive role in supporting their mission.”
Mr. Ed Shipman, founder of the Happy Hill Farm organization, responded by stating “We’re grateful for EnerMax’s generous financial commitment. We wish them every success in their endeavors and hope they will make a lot of money for at-risk children.”
Happy Hill Farm Academy/Home is totally dependent on the gifts from its friends in the private sector. It receives no State or Federal funds, nor any United Way monies. The Farm invests directly into the lives of at risk children by devoting over 90% of their annual budget to food, clothing, shelter, and education. Because of their strong fiscal responsibility and determination to make a positive influence in the lives of at-risk children, Happy Hill Farm has garnered support of celebrities such as Dr. Phil and Troy Aikman.
