Benit Fuel Recognized as First Recipient of the Gulf Oil Local Giving AwardLouis DeBenedittis of Benit Fuel Sales & Service, a Gulf supplier on Long Island, was awarded the first “Gulf Oil Local Giving Award”. President of Gulf Oil, Ron Sabia, presented the award to Louis at Gulf’s Distributor Advisory Council meeting this past November. The “Local Giving Award” has been introduced to help recognize those customers who demonstrate awareness, involvement, dedication and innovation throughout their communities. Louis has consistently been a strong supporter of Making Strides over the past several years and has challenged his employees, stations and fellow Gulf Distributors to help make a difference in their communities. Benit Fuel Sales & Service raised over $7,000 this year and plans to further grow their fundraising efforts in the coming years. Since Gulf formalized its partnership with the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in 2012, Benit Fuel & Service has contributed over $20,000 towards Gulf’s overall fundraising efforts.
To thank Louis for his dedication, innovation, and involvement in raising awareness for breast cancer research and programs, we honor him with the first ever “Local Giving Award” for giving back to his community.
