Recently, Tony and Cynthia Petrello hosted a party at their Shadyside estate to celebrate the return of Tommy Tune to his home town of Houston, Texas. Tony Petrello is a Houston oil executive serving in the position of CEO for Nabors Industries. He and his wife invited 50 friends and the Miller Outdoor Theatre Advisory Board to celebrate Tommy Tune’s return. Tune graduated from Lamar High School and his dance teacher was Patsy Swayze, Patrick Swayze’s mother and an acclaimed film choreographer and dance instructor.
Tommy Tune is well celebrated in his home town of Houston after receiving numerous Tony Awards for Broadway performances in “Grand Hotel”, “My one and Only” and “Nine”, just to name a few. He was in town to perform “Tommy Tune Tonight” at the Miller Outdoor Theatre. The well attended event attracted 5,000 excited fans.
Tony Petrello was happy to host this event as it fits right in with the goals he and his wife share. Establishing the Petrello Family Foundation in 2001, Tony and Cynthia strive to help education, the performing arts and medical resources improve and become available to those who are in need. When their daughter, Carena was born with periventricular leukomalacia, an infant disease developed as a result of poor oxygen flow to the brain, she developed cerebral palsy. Now, both parents are focused on finding a cure. To further their efforts, they established the Jan and Dan Neurological Research Institute, which focuses on helping children with neurological diseases.
Tony Petrello grew up in Newark, NJ. His family had money struggles and he was very aware of that, so he applied himself to his studies. He hoped he would one day attend a good college and improve the financial status of his family. At public school, he studied so intensely that he mastered calculus and other mathematics-based problems. Upon graduation he received a full scholarship to Yale.
At Yale, he continued to impress his teachers and even helped Serge Lang, the mathematical theorist work on number theory. He eventually graduated from Harvard Law School after switching his major from math to human sciences.
As the CEO of Nabors Industries, a leading oil and natural gas drilling company, he has topped the charts as one of the highest paid executives during his tenure. Despite the level of his earnings, he has remained humble and honest. Tony Petrello has been responsible for helping thousands of workers obtain good paying jobs at Nabors Industries and he continues to give to people through his foundations. He is one of the rare human beings, a builder, a provider and a giver.
