$500 shopping spree helps community projects in Sooke

Sooke Harbourside Lions raise funds for charities

The Sooke Harbourside Lions have launched a fundraiser that will send a lucky winner racing down the aisles of Village Food Markets, scooping up free groceries as they go.

It’s all reminiscent of the American game show, Supermarket Sweep, in which contestants tossed as many items into their carts as possible as they raced through a vacated supermarket.

The winners of the Harbourside Lions contest will have that same opportunity, careening their carts through Village Food Markets in a five-minute spree in which they will get to keep the contents of their cart (to a maximum of $500).

Second and third place winners in the Dec. 2 draw willreceive $200 and $100 gift cards, respectively, just in time for holiday shopping.

Tickets for the draw are three for $5 and available at the Sooke Family Resource thrift store on 6715 West Coast Rd.

Sooke Harbourside Lions will also be at Village Food Market at random times; so keep an eye out for them.

It’s all to raise money for the many community projects to which the Harbourside Lions lend their support.
