HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - During the month of June, Tesoro 2Go stations on Oahu, Maui and the Big Island will accept donations benefiting Special Olympics Hawaii athletes who are traveling to the World Games this summer.

Make a donation through July 5 and enter for chance to win $1,500 in Tesoro gift cards.

Fueling Dreams will run from Monday, June 27 to Friday, July 1 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. As part of the annual event, Tesoro Hawaii will lower prices for all grades of gasoline to the same prices at two "mystery" stations.

Tesoro Hawaii employees and law enforcement officers will also participate in the cause by providing service at the pump for customers.

"Every year our employees look forward to partnering with local law enforcement to support this event for Special Olympics Hawaii -- an organization integral to the fabric of our community," Tesoro Hawaii senior regional manager Eric Lee said. "This year, Fueling Dreams takes on an even greater meaning as we work to raise funds and 'fuel the dreams' of our Hawaii athletes attending the World Games in Greece."

In 2010, Tesoro Hawaii raised $90,000 for Special Olympics Hawaii.
