Wal-Mart give-away is this Saturday
Centre Wal-Mart and Kingsford have teamed up to raise funds for Relay For Life 2011. For the past few weeks, WalMart has been selling chances on a Charcoal grill, along with other accessories including lighter fluid, charcoal, trash bags, salad dressing and others which will be given away this Saturday, May 29, at 2 p.m.
According to Aaron McKenzie, grocery department manager for Centre Wal-Mart, the Wal-Mart Relay For Life team has raised close to $5,000 and the store will match whatever the team raises and they hope the total will surpass $10,000.
“Kingsford gave us a call and asked if we wanted to do a display and raffle off this display,” said McKenzie. “We said ‘sure, we have plenty of fundraisers between the Relay For Life going on and raising money the store is trying to raise for storm victims. We also have the Children’s Miracle Network fundraiser that is coming up in the next week or so. Anything we can do to partner with our vendors and raise money for these causes, we are all for it.”
McKenzie and other Wal-Mart crew members ask citizens to stop by this week and purchase a chance on the Kingsford grill and display.
