GEORGETOWN, TEXAS—CEFCO hosted its 20th annual Hackers-R-Us Charity Golf Tournament this week, raising over $280,000 for The Fikes Foundation, which will provide scholarships and grants to various charitable organizations.
“We are proud to host another successful tournament, and we are grateful for all who came out to support The Fikes Foundation,” said Ken Rowland, chief operating officer of CEFCO. “Thank you to all of our vendor sponsors for your continued support, and thank you to Cimarron Hills for their support in hosting this event.”
The Fikes Foundation was founded in 2017 by James and Kim Fikes to gather funds that could then be used to serve communities, provide scholarships and support charitable causes. James Fikes was passionate about helping children, both medically and educationally, so that they could have the opportunity to grow up and pursue their dreams. Events, such as the CEFCO annual golf tournament, allow The Fikes Foundation donate to organizations like the McLane Children’s Medical Center, Eldred’s Nursery, the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor, Children’s Miracle Network and the American Heart Association.
The Fikes Companies include CEFCO Convenience Stores, Group Petroleum Services, CORD Financial Services, Digital Network Solutions, Fikes Fuels, Fikes Wholesale and JF Air.
