CHICAGO, July 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- On July 25, CITGO Petroleum Corporation and its local CITGO Marketers in Wisconsin and Illinois celebrated the first of four Fueling Good Fridays as part of the Six Flags Fueling Good Summer Discount promotion. Customers who filled up their tanks at participating CITGO locations before July 25 received a discount admission offer to Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, Ill. and other exclusive perks. They also had the chance to meet Fueling Good Road Trip host Diego, Miss Wisconsin Raeanna Johnson and Miss Illinois Marisa Buchheit, who were at the park for the event.
"We are thrilled to offer our customers a chance to enjoy a summer day at Six Flags while tying in the fueling good philosophy of CITGO," said Brian Frawley, wholesale manager at Frawley Oil Company, a Wisconsin-based CITGO Marketer. "We are grateful for the support our local community provides us and we're excited to give back with events like these to the loyal customers that fuel our business."
The next Six Flags Fueling Good Friday is Aug. 1, with more events scheduled on Aug. 8, and Aug. 15. Fueling Good Road Trip host Diego, Miss Wisconsin and Miss Illinois made a special appearance at the first Fueling Good Friday to pose for pictures and greet park guests throughout the day.
