Wausau, Wis. – May 27, 2015 – Callon CITGO (7605 Schofield Ave) is holding its annual customer appreciation day on Friday, May 29 from 10:00AM-4:00PM where customers can dine on free food and drink and register for giveaways that will include Milwaukee Brewers tickets and CITGO Gift Cards.  As part of the celebration, Miss Wisconsin, Raeanna Johnson, will be at Callon CITGO from 11:00AM-1:00PM to greet customers, pose for pictures and sign autographs.   

Callon CITGO is a locally-owned, family- operated business that opened its doors 12 years ago.  Carrie and Chad Sickler, along with Chad’s parents, Lois and Rick Sickler, own the station.  The Sicklers have invested a good deal in the business over the years offering a food court and a unique frozen yogurt bar that is not typical of most convenience stores.  

“We are so thankful for all our wonderful customers,” said Carrie Sickler.  “We’ve worked hard over the last dozen years to provide convenience and value to our neighbors in the greater-Wausau area.  We are excited to celebrate with them on May 29.”  

Prior to her appearance at the station, Miss Wisconsin will share the story of the tragedy her family faced in losing her brother, Tyler, to addiction when she visits D.C. Everest Senior High School.  Through her project, Tyler’s Legacy, Johnson now uses her status as Miss Wisconsin to try and prevent other families from experiencing the pain she’s dealt with.  Johnson works to find opportunities to share Tyler’s story and create conversations about the tremendous impact of substance abuse.   

While Miss Wisconsin is at D.C. Everest, students will get the chance to win free gift cards when they download the Club CITGO App.    CITGO is a major sponsor of the Miss Wisconsin program. 

“Callon CITGO regularly invests in its customers and its community,” said Luke Garrow, vice president of Garrow Oil, a branded distributor for CITGO and supplier to Callon CITGO.  “Bringing Miss Wisconsin to both meet with customers and share her powerful story is another example of CITGO and its marketers and retailers investing in Wisconsin.”
