Shahn Beats Last Year’s Record
Posted November 22, 2018 at 9:36 am by Tim Dustrude
Shopping Spree winner Shahn McGuire again ran for the 28th Annual San Juan Lions Club Shopping Spree on Tuesday. She filled shopping carts with $2007.22 worth of groceries in her 4 minute run and donated all of it to the Food Bank, (minus a couple of chocolate bars).
5 year old Lily Easley once again picked the Grand Prize Winning ticket. Last year, Lily Easley age 4 at the time, also picked the winner and remarkably, picked Shahn McGuire for the 2017 run as well!
The odds of this happening are… well, who knows ?
Shahn’s run last year for the food bank netted $1,076.95. (and she was as amazed as anyone to be picked for the 2nd year in a row)
This year, 3 Turkeys were also awarded to:
- Andy Zall
- Ruth Fleming
- Rikki Swin (Rikki was the 2016 Grand Prize Winner)
The 2018 Raffle Sales were the most successful EVER in the 29 years San Juan Lions club has been doing the Annual shopping Spree with over 3600 tickets sold. 100% of the funds go to LOCAL Scholarships.
Thanks to Kings and Market Place for allowing San Juan Lions to do this annually and allowing the Giant Shopping Cart to be parked outside.
