Citgo Raises more than $400,000 for MDA

You may only think about the Muscular Dystrophy Association once a year when you see the Jerry Lewis Telethon; but there are hundreds of people who spend the whole year giving to the organization that does so much for kids with muscular dystrophy.

Last night, I got to spend a couple of hours with some very generous employees and partners of Citgo at the 24th Annual Citgo/ MDA Corporate Golf Challenge Tee-Off Dinner.

It was my third year to emcee the event at Hotel ZaZa. This year, everyone who made a donation to help send a kid to MDA Summer Camp got leied with these light-up “leis of hope.”

Since 1986 Citgo Petroleum Corporation has raised more than $120 million dollars for MDA. This year, Citgo surpassed its  goal of raising $400,000.
