If you have some free time around 10 tomorrow morning, or plan to be out grocery shopping anyway, West Seattle Thriftway (WSB sponsor) invites you to come cheer for the West Seattle Food Bank‘s big shopping spree, courtesy of a customer. Michele from Thriftway explains::
During West Seattle Thriftway’s 26th Anniversary Event the company held a fundraiser to benefit the West Seattle Food bank raffling off a $500 Western Family Shopping Spree. Ticket were $1/each and the grand total of money raised reached over $1,500!
The winning ticket, chosen on March 26th, was designated by the purchasing customer to go to the West Seattle Food Bank. Please join us on Friday at 10 a.m.. to cheer on Chris Porter, from the Board of Directors for the Food Bank, as he runs down the aisles grabbing as much Western Family merchandise he can in 4 minutes!
Last year’s spree also turned into a giving spree for the Food Bank. This time of year, giving to the WS Food Bank or its neighboring White Center Food Bank counts extra because until the end of the month – six more days! – the Feinstein Challenge (explained here) magnifies the gift.
