Boyett Petroleum Raises $275,000 for Local Children

Funds raised during annual golf tournament will benefit local children’s programs.
July 17, 2017

​MODESTO, Calif. – Boyett Petroleum’s Make Dreams Real Endowment Fund hosted its 2017 golf tournament, the single fundraising event responsible for building the Make Dreams Real Endowment Fund, at Del Rio and Oakdale Golf and Country Clubs. A portion of the fund is distributed annually to local children’s educational programs through a grant process overseen by an advisory board.

Since the fund’s inception in 2009, more than $720,000 in grant funding has been awarded to local children’s programs and organizations, including Foothill Horizons Outdoor Education, Modesto Symphony Carnegie Youth Program, Society for Disabilities and Juline Foundation. 

Along with numerous donors, petroleum industry partners Williams Tank Lines and Valero Energy Corporation sponsored the tournament, which was held in May. Boyett Petroleum underwrites all costs associated with the tournament, and 100% of monies received are directly deposited to the fund.

Cruisers, the Boyett convenience store brand, raised more than $6,000 for the fund during the annual “Send a Kid to Camp” campaign, which ran during the month of May at local Cruisers locations. Customers made donations at the pumps or inside the stores.

The goal of the Make Dreams Real Endowment Fund is to enhance the lives of local children by providing stimulating enrichment opportunities that may not be otherwise available. 

The 2018 Make Dreams Real Annual Golf Tournament is scheduled for May 17, 2018; registration will open online on October 1, 2017. Those interested in golfing, sponsoring, making a donation or purchasing items to benefit MDR are encouraged to visit www.makedreamsreal.org
