Shopping Spree Raffle to benefit Grant Fine Arts
Ok, you’re at the starting line ready for the signal.
It’s a moment that has involved preparation along the way, developing a plan mapping a route, and making sure the legs are in shape.
Suddenly the word ‘Go!’ is heard and you’re off, forging ahead with the shopping cart in front of you and turning down the pre-chosen first aisle toward …….
That’s right. We’re not talking about the upcoming St Nick Kick, we’re referencing a different type of event. A 60 second shopping spree at Gene’s Family Market in Grant. One full minute to pack your cart with whatever groceries your hungry heart desires.
The 2017 Shopping Spree Raffle Drawing will be held on December 11, 2017. The lucky 1st place winner will have the opportunity to go on a 60 second shopping spree on Wednesday, December 13th; 2nd place is $200.00 cash and 3rd place is $100.00 cash.
There will be 1,000 tickets printed and sold for $10.00 each. Tickets can be purchased at either of the Gene's Family Markets, Grant or Croton. They can also be purchased from a member of the Grant Music Boosters or email firstname.lastname@example.org and someone from the boosters will contact you.
Elliott and LaRissa Vanderlaan who purchased the store this past year see the ‘Spree’ as a way of showing their appreciation for the support they have received from the community
“We have been blessed with a great opportunity and platform to provide groceries and extra cash during this sometimes hectic, but wonderful time of the year,” said Elliott.. “During this season of giving, we wanted to create an event in between the holiday of giving thanks for what we have, and the holiday of giving gifts of things we don’t have.”
“The Grant Music Boosters, Charlie McKinley and Eleaze Farrell are responsible for providing us with this great opportunity,”added LaRissa “We look forward to hosting the Shopping Spree for one lucky winner!”
The money raised will help enhance Fine Arts in the community through support of the theatre, choir and the marching band programs at Grant High School.
