DESTIN, Fla. -- Circle K Stores' Florida and Gulf Coast regions raised approximately $450,000 for United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) through its annual FishStix event, a golfing and fishing tournament sponsored by the retailer, which has held April 28–30, 2008.
"Circle K has a long history of supporting United Cerebral Palsy," Michael Struble, vice president of Circle K's Florida region said in a statement.
"Events like FishStix allow UCP affiliates to continue providing the critical services that people with disabilities in our communities so desperately need. Circle K is proud of this partnership, and supports UCP as they strive to help people with disabilities live life without limits."
All proceeds from the event were given to UCP and its network of 100 affiliates across North America, Western Europe, Canada and Australia, the company stated.
Through the FishStix event and a year-round in-store coin canister program, Circle K has contributed more than $35 million over the past 25 years to UCP to help support affiliate programs and services, the company stated.
"Circle K's generous support of United Cerebral Palsy through events like FishStix enable affiliates to provide vital services to people with disabilities, offering them a chance to live full, independent and productive lives," Stephen Bennett, president and CEO of UCP, said in a statement.
