West Seattle Thriftway shopping spree: WS Food Bank wins twice!

Grocery shopping is a popular thing to do on Saturday mornings. Not quite the way Bart Eldredge and son Chase Eldredge did it today, though. They won the West Seattle Thriftway (WSB sponsor) benefit raffle for a shopping spree of as many Western Family-brand products they could grab in that time. Chase was an ace:

Thriftway’s Michele Grasso checked the Eldredges out, tallying a grand total of $728 in merchandise:

Not only did the raffle-ticket sales raise $3,179 for the West Seattle Food Bank, the Eldredges donated more than half their haul to WSFB, whose executive director Fran Yeatts was there to say thanks:

The Thriftway fundraiser was just one of their ongoing community projects, and was also in celebration of the locally owned grocery store’s 27th anniversary this spring. Another popular annual fundraiser is their series of Saturday benefit lunchtime barbecues, and Michele tells us the first one is just two weeks away, on May 2nd.
