Wal-Mart give-away is this Satur­day

Cherokee County Herald - - SPORTS - By TERRY DEAN Edi­tor

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.
