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.
