CITGO Honors Fenway Park Centennial With 'Greatest Moments' Campaign
BOSTON -- CITGO Petroleum will commemorate this year's centennial anniversary of Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox, by launching the "Boston's Greatest Moments Under the Sign 'Good Moments Make Great Memories'" campaign in partnership with Sports Radio WEEI 93.7FM/850AM. Each week from now through Oct. 4, baseball fans are invited to submit their greatest memory in the form of a favorite picture under the CITGO sign for the chance to win a $50 gift card.
"CITGO celebrated its 100-year heritage in 2010, so we are proud to welcome Fenway Park into the Centennial Club," said Alan Flagg, general manager of Light Oils Marketing with CITGO. "Together, the CITGO Sign and Fenway Park have helped create wonderful memories for millions of people, and it is exciting to have a forum where fans can share these special moments."
The CITGO sign has been part of Boston's skyline since 1965 when it replaced the original Cities Service logo. Since then it has illuminated Kenmore Square and inspired homeruns, marked the last mile of the Boston Marathon and more, according to the company.
"We are always humbled by the loyalty that Red Sox fans and Bostonians have for the CITGO Sign," added Flagg. "Serving as a beacon of light in Boston's night sky, we look forward to remaining in Boston's Kenmore Square for many years to come and continuing the great services provided by the nearly 6,000 locally owned and operated CITGO locations across the country."
To enter the contest, fans can submit a photo at www.weei.com/promos/citgo. Each week a random winner will be selected and win a $50 gift card. Additionally, winning photos could be featured online at www.weei.com.
Throughout the 2012 season, Red Sox Baseball on the Radio will feature the 100 top memories in Fenway's 100-year history presented by CITGO. Milestones include the first official game against the New York Highlanders on April 20, 1912 and the Ted Williams' 502-foot homerun on June 9, 1946.
