East Arkansas residents “Open Hearts, Pump Up!” for the Ranch

Recently 11 Circle ‘N’ market stores in east Arkansas collectively raised over $10,000 during their annual Open Hearts, Pump Up campaign to benefit the ranch.

During the week-long fundraiser during the week of Valentine’s Day, Nimocks Oil Company, parent company of Circle ‘N’, pledged to donate two cents for every gallon of fuel purchased at each of its 11 locations.  Circle ‘N’ customers and vendors also made donations to help reach a total of $11,162.  Way to go east Arkansas!

Nimocks Oil Company owners Mallory and Carla Nimocks presented Ranch Chief Executive Officer, Mike Cumnock, and several County Sheriffs with a check on March 19 for the total amount raised during Open Hearts, Pump Up 2012.

Note that this check was printed before all donations were collected.
