Phillips Energy raised $3,972 for the Alzheimer’s Association at its annual “Longest Day” fundraiser.

The fundraiser aimed to help fuel efforts to eradicate Alzheimer’s and support families across Virginia’s Middle Peninsula that are living with it, the company says.

The event took place on June 20, the longest day of the year and the annual day of awareness across the country for the Alzheimer’s Association.

Phillips Energy dedicated a portion of its sales at the Gloucester Point retail fuel station to the cause, sold raffle tickets for a basket filled with gift certificates to local businesses and partnered with Waypoint Seafood & Grill to sell grill-out packages, summer corn, crab chowder and other appetizers.

“The Alzheimer’s Association is a cause that is very important to us and one that we are honored to support each year,” says Elizabeth McCormick, vice president of Phillips Energy. “We can’t thank our team, our customers and this community enough for rallying behind this effort to help families suffering from this terrible disease. Together we can do so much.”

The funds will be donated to the Alzheimer’s Association through Phillips Energy’s annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s team.
