Summerfest a Huge Success!


Last week, PMCI members from across our great state came together for the First Annual, PMCI Summerfest to celebrate our industry’s success, have fun, network and to raise money for the PMCI PAC.

We raised $8.6K in personal contributions in support of the PAC, with $6.1K being donated in advance of the event and another $2.5K raised during the event. These contributions are critical in an election year to help PMCI support candidates who understand our industry’s issues. In total, PMCI has raised $27.4K toward of the goal of $40K in 2018. THANK YOU to OUR PAC CONTRIBUTORS! 

On Thursday evening at Prairie Meadows, participants enjoyed live horse racing, cocktails, dinner, and live music while placing their bets on each race thanks for the event sponsor, RINAlliance. In between races, there was time to catch up with friends and colleagues, bid on silent auction items, enjoy dessert, or throw bags outside on a truly gorgeous evening. In the silent auction, great gifts like a Yeti Cooler, Ladies Bulova Watch, Beats Headphones, Fitbits, and a Laser Range Finder and Odyssey Putter for the avid golfer were displayed among others. The big winners were Frank Bradley of ET Products, Todd Kanne of Community Oil, Don Burd of Otter Creek Stores, Bev Jessen of Cylinder Express, and Lisa Abens of Wessels Oil.

PMCI sponsored race #5 and delivered their message of “Fueling Iowa’s Economy” to the crowd and enjoyed a group photo with the winning horse. Once the races were over, everyone took their winnings to the casino floor for more fun. The craps table was rocking and several PMCI members enjoyed a fun and lucrative evening for a great cause.

The next morning, Summerfest participants enjoyed a great breakfast and then had the option of a day at Adventureland amusement park, or an 18 hole best shot event at the beautiful Legacy Golf Club. The weather was perfect for each – 79 degrees and sunny, we couldn’t have asked for more. After a brief address from PMCI’s Dawn Carlson, the golfers were off for the 9am shotgun start. There were birdie’s aplenty and great fun for all.

As the players made the turn, they enjoyed a grilled lunch sponsored by Harm’s Oil and the challenges of the back nine. The beverage cart sponsored by Molo Petroleum kept the players cool and the swings in tune as they tested their skill for the pin prizes and EMC’s sponsored hole. The winning team of Jim and Cindy Pauk from W & H Cooperative, and Unified Contracting’s Allen Boeckman and Chad Dejoode ran away with the title with a score of 12 under par. Olsen Fuel Supply cleaned up on the pin prizes as Barb Olsen won the longest drive for the women, and Jon Olsen won the longest drive for the men. Cindy Pauk won the closest to the pin prize and Acterra Group’s Tony Howell walked away with the longest putt. The golf event could not be made possible without all of our major sponsors, Mast ATM, Iowa Lottery, Valero, EMC, Grysson Oil, Seneca Companies, Community Oil, Otter Creek Stores, and Molo Petroleum.

Thank you to everyone for coming out to make Summerfest such a huge success!
