A Texas based convenience store is introducing two Selena commemorative cups right before the "Fiesta de la Flor" event in Corpus Christi taking place on March 24 - 25th. The press release states that the commemorative Selena cups will be sold starting March 1st through April 4th (while supplies last) at participating Stripes stores in Corpus Christi, the Rio Grande Valley, Laredo, San Antonio, Houston and select stores in the Midland and Odessa area. Part of the proceeds will go to the Selena Foundation.
Suzette Quintanilla Arriaga posted on Sunday evening (Feb. 19) about a surprise gift to Selena's fans who would meet her at the Selena statue in Corpus Christi the following morning. Suzette gave away one of the two commemorative cups to the first 50 fans.
Eduardo Pereda, the VP of Marketing Conenience Brands for Sunoco LP says: "Our guests are at the center of all that we do and we know that honoring Selena's legacy is incredibly meaningful to her fans. We are honored to build on the success of Fiesta de la Flor in this special way. These commemorative cups are a unique opportunity to show our support and starting March 1 our guests can pick them up at our participating stores."
