Local man receives a year of free fuel
Jay Hrdlicka is all about helping young adults in Evansville, Wis., be the best they can be. Whether it’s football, baseball, weight training, conditioning or fundraising, Hrdlicka is there for the kids. This sports enthusiast and Landmark Evansville c-store customer was selected to receive free fuel from Tanks of Thanks®, a program that rewards people who do good deeds for others in their communities.
Hrdlicka was nominated for the Tanks of Thanks program by Evansville High School football coach Ron Grovesteen for his dedication to developing and mentoring young athletes. In the nomination, the coach praised Hrdlicka for the immeasurable hours he spends working with the community’s youth all year round.
“It’s amazing to see what a little patience, time and encouragement can do to boost young athletes’ confidence and skill,” says Hrdlicka.
As a thank you for his community involvement, Hrdlicka will receive 12 months worth of free fuel to help continue his efforts. The reward will be provided in Tanks of Thanks gift cards (valued at more than $2,000), and a case of Maxtron® PCMO 5W-30 engine oil.
CHS and Landmark have been so inspired by the many stories told through the Tanks of Thanks program. Landmark executive vice president of energy and retail services, Adam DeLawyer, notes, “We are excited to partner with CHS on this rewarding program. We take great pride in giving back to the communities we serve, and the Tanks of Thanks program is one example of doing just that.”
“We realize that the Tanks of Thanks program does more than give away free fuel. It empowers people. People like Jay Hrdlicka and the countless others who do good things for those around them. Congratulations to Jay, and thank you for your contributions to the community,” explains Akhtar Hussain, CHS refined fuels brand marketing manager.
According to Hussain, this special one-time giveaway is in addition to the $50 Cenex gas cards given to 100 recipients every month through Tanks of Thanks. The program encourages people to nominate friends, family and neighbors for free fuel as a way to say thank you for doing good in the community. “Nominating someone for Tanks of Thanks is easy, and anyone can nominate or be nominated for any act of kindness — big or small,” he says.
