Common Cents Stores

A record year in fund raising for Shriners!

For 24 years, Common Cents Stores collects pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters to benefit the transportation fund for the local Shriner's across 3 states from their customers. These contributions make a difference in providing vital transportation to and from Shriner's Hospitals for children who need specialized treatment. 

Common Cents Stores doesn't stop there; putting together a charitable golf tournament in which vendors who supply 29 convenience store locations across South Dakota, Wyoming and Utah play.

Through these efforts what started as a $12,000 charitable event has grown and today the final numbers are in for the 2023 campaign. 

Drum Roll Please . . .

The final totals for the annual Common Cents Charity Golf Tournament and customer donations for Shriners are in and an all-time record was set - $125,000!

The annual golf tournament was again held at the Golf Club at Red Rock in Rapid City on August 24, 2023. The 130 employee, suppliers and Shriners who golfed were blessed with beautiful weather for a day to raise money for charity. After everything was paid, the tournament netted a record $65,000 for local Shriner's Transportation Funds across 3 states! 

But, as always, the real fundraising happened out in the field and through the support of the local communities. Through those donations another all time record was set, raising $65,346!
