O’Neal joins Texas nonprofit

George H. O’Neal III, former president and CEO of Triangle Family Services in Raleigh, has been named director of Spring Festival and community relations for Boys and Girls Country, a Christian home near Houston for children from families in crisis.

The Spring Festival is a carnival that brings roughly 2,500 adults and children to the group’s campus in Hockley, Tex.

The event, scheduled for May 3, is expected to net roughly $400,000, up from nearly $350,000 this year, O’Neal says.

On Nov. 6, he says, he participated in the organization’s Heritage Dinner, an event that featured entertainer Bill Cosby, attracted 2,500 guests, and netted $1.7 million, exceeding its goal by $200,000.

O’Neal resigned as president and CEO of Triangle Family Services in September after heading the agency for nearly 21 years.
