Circle K Florida, UCP's largest corporate supporter, presented UCP affiliates with an oversized check for $552,837.73 during an awards dinner and ceremony at the company's FishStix 2012, an annual golf and fishing tournament in Fort Myers, Florida. The amount represents the proceeds that were raised from last year's FishStix event and funds raised through canister donations and other in-store promotions from June 2011 to March 2012. "Circle K Florida cares deeply about the communities where we have stores and operate," explained Darrell Davis, vice president of Circle K Florida. "It is paramount for Circle K Florida to give back to the people that we serve, and our decades-long partnership with UCP will continue to raise funds that serve local people with disabilities, making Florida communities stronger and inclusive of everyone." "Without Circle K's support, there are many types of services that we provide that we couldn't continue to provide. Circle K Florida has such a huge impact -- hundreds of thousands of people are impacted by their support, just in our territory alone," said Craig Byrd, executive director of UCP of East Central Florida.
