Stripes® Convenience Stores Annual Turf + Surf Event Raises Over $525,000 Benefiting 38 United Way Agencies Across Texas, New Mexico And Oklahoma

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas, Oct. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Stripes® Convenience Stores raised over $525,000 at its annual Turf + Surf event fundraiser benefiting 38 United Way agencies across the Stripes® Convenience Stores market areas: Texas, New Mexico, and Oklahoma. The event was held on September 26 and 27, 2013, in Corpus Christi, Texas.

The Annual Turf + Surf fundraiser is a signature event for Stripes Convenience Stores. Steve DeSutter, Stripes Convenience Stores President and CEO, addressed a crowd of over 850 participants, supplier partners and sponsors at the American Bank Center.  He also recognized representatives from several United Way agencies throughout the tri-state area. "I am very proud of our Stripes team, our generous suppliers and the power of our partnership with The United Way as we serve the communities where our customers and employees live and work," DeSutter stated. Currently, DeSutter serves as past-chair of the board of directors for the United Way Chapter of the Coastal Bend.

The fundraiser featured an appreciation dinner which offered a raffle, silent auction, a bid board auction, and a live auction. The festivities continued the next morning with three rounds of golf and a fishing tournament.  David Stockton was this year's celebrity golf pro. Stockton hosted a private clinic for premium sponsors and offered golf tips for participants in the tournament.
