What started as a cloudy rain turned into a downpour but that did not stop these dedicated refinery workers, contractors and families for coming out to raise money for our Community Produce Program*. Tesoro Golden Eagle Refinery, Shell Oil Products US, Phillips 66 and Valero Benicia Refinery began collecting food and money the beginning of August and ended mid-September with a fundraiser celebration which includes a Poker Run, sponsored by United Rentals, S&S, and Contra Costa Electric , motorcycle and custom classic car show, music, great food and lots of laughter. These refineries as well as their contractors and employees of both give time, money and food to help their neighbors in their community throughout the year.
It is great experience working with all of them towards our mission. So far this year, they have been able to raise over $23,000. Contra Costa Electric, Inc., S & S Supplies and Solutions, Brinderson and Discover Land Care, our Contractor Sponsors, also deserve big thanks for all the support they give to the Food Bank. The Shell Clubhouse, jumping with music by Bourbon Fixx Band was powered by DC Solar and the food was good as always when using England’s Café & Catering. Great vendors, such as, McGuire Harley-Davidson, Joyce Cid CMT, Origami Owl, Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys, Crowne Plaza, Body Savior Wraps, Fit 2 the Core, Central Valley Paranormal and Contra Costa Chiropractic, fun, games and a variety of raffle items made this day complete. We would like to thank all of you for caring and helping your neighbors in need.
