Proceeds go to Ekey Neighborhood Park Project
The Hays Sunrise Rotary Club is sponsoring its annual Grocery Grab fundraiser.
The winner gets to spend five minutes wheeling their grocery cart through the Dillon’s store at 1902 Vine, at 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 15.
“It’s the best way I know to shop for Thanksgiving Dinner,” said Larry Dreiling, Hays Sunrise Rotary Club president. “For a suggested donation of $10, you get to pick up almost an unlimited amount of groceries.”
The only restrictions are entrants must be 18 or older, cannot purchase pharmacy, alcohol, tobacco, or health and beauty products, and are limited to one minute in the meat department with a maximum pick-up of two items each, and five items of one kind each.
The proceeds for the annual Grocery Grab will go toward improvements at Ekey Neighborhood Park. To get tickets, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or visit hayssunriserotary.org. The winner will be notified Nov. 11.
