Pitching in…

Staff at the Nesters Market grocery store in Kelowna wanted to contribute to the purchase of a gravestone marker for the infant child of one of their co-workers. The young girl was killed in a motor vehicle accident last year. The raffle consisted of a produce basket prize done individually in each of the six Nesters and the parent company Buy-Low stores across the Okanagan, and a meat draw among all the employees. The raffle prizes generated a contribution of $1,520. The winning ticket for the $500 meat prize package was drawn by the parents of Angela, Anita and Shaun. The winning ticket belonged to Jordan Fraser, who works at the Kelowna Nesters location.       -
