Fill-up and fuel a dream in Kona Thursday and Friday

MEDIA RELEASE

Special Olympics West Hawaii volunteers and athletes pump gas, talk story and clean windows for tips during the 2009 Fueling Dreams fundraiser in Kona. These tips are donated to Special Olympics, a year-round program of sports training and competitions for people with intellectual disabilities.

Special Olympics West Hawaii, Tesoro Hawaii, Hawaii Police Department and volunteers will be filling tanks from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sept. 30 and Oct. 1 at the Tesoro on Queen Kaahumanu Highway, which is across from the Honokohau Small Boat Harbor.

Tesoro is hosting “Fueling Dreams” events statewide at 12 gas stations to raise money for Special Olympics, a year-round program of sports training and competitions for people with intellectual disabilities. Last year, the event raised nearly $4,000.

Local police officers pump gas and clean windows for a good cause — the 2009 Fueling Dreams fundraiser, which raised money for Special Olympics, a year-round program of sports training and competitions for people with intellectual disabilities.

Volunteers are needed to pump gas, talk story, clean windshields, laugh and take donations. Sign up for the following shifts: 6 to 10 a.m., 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Tell a friend, tell a co-worker, and tell your tutu. If you need gas, Tesoro is the place to be. The place will be pumping. Twice the shifts, twice the people, and twice the fun. Get out there and pump someone up.

For more information, call SOWH Area Director Dave Ross at 345-1344 or SOWH Head of Delegation Lona Warner at 989-2080.
