The western division of the Circle K convenience store chain donated more than $340,000 to the American Red Cross at the “King of Clubs” charity golf tournament in Palm Springs, Calif. Sept. 27.
The funds were in keeping with Circle K’s commitment to helping the Red Cross community prepare, respond and recover from disasters.
“We live, work and volunteer in these communities,” said Dan Dobson, director of marketing, Circle K West. “Working with the Red Cross is a seamless way to help everyone become better prepared for disasters. Our employees take this partnership seriously as many serve as Red Cross volunteers throughout California, Oregon and Washington.”
The tournament, held at the Indian Canyon Golf Resort, brought more than 120 golfers of all skill levels.
“We are so grateful to Circle K, their vendors and sponsors for this important gift,” said Lois Beckman, executive director, American Red Cross serving Riverside County. “Together, with partners like Circle K, we are building resilient communities in our area and beyond.”
