The San Juan Island Lions Club held their annual “Shopping Spree” fund raiser raffle draw on Saturday, a decades old San Juan Island tradition of selling tickets ($1 each or 6 tickets for $5) at Kings & Marketplace grocery stores, with 100% of the money used to support the SJ Lions Club annual Scholarships awarded every Spring.
The winners this year are:
Shahn McGuire, Grand Prize,
Danna Diaz, &
1st Prize allows Shahn a 4 minute "Run" through Kings Market filling up shopping carts provided by Kings.
The winning ticket in 2015 really paid off as within four minutes on November 24, 2015, that year's winner scooped up $892.62 worth of groceries at King's Market -& then donated all of it to the Food Bank.
Diaz and Earle both won a turkey.
