HCK2 Proudly Supports United Supermarkets’ 21st Jacky Pierce Charity Classic

Since May 2011, HCK2 has been honored to work with United Supermarkets, LLC (United), parent company to Market Street, Amigos, United Supermarkets and United Express.

We love United at HCK2, in fact our own Kerri Fulks spends most of her free time - and paychecks - at Frisco’s Market Street. I have even been known to spend a few weekends in Lubbock, often grabbing friends to stop by Amigos for the amazing fresh tortillas and Market Street for lunch.

So, when given the opportunity to support one of United’s many community relations efforts, HCK2 was honored. We sponsored the wine for the events dinner held for all supporters…of course, this only seemed fitting.

“We are fortunate to partner with a public relations firm that not only supports all of our endeavors, but truly believes in what we are doing in all communities we serve,” said Eddie Owens, director of communications and public relations for United. “Over the past year-and-a-half, I have really gotten to know the team, so was I surprised when they chose to be our wine sponsor for the evening? Not even for a second.”

This year, United Supermarkets raised $220,000 from its annual Jacky Pierce Charity Classic, and all proceeds were donated to local United Way chapters. Now in its 21st year, the annual golf tournament has raised more than $2.8 million for local charities.The tournament is named in honor of United Supermarkets’ longtime produce director, Jacky Pierce, who lost his battle with cancer in August 2002.

Our hat is off to you United. Thank you for our valued partnership and your continued support of local communities.
