Three lucky winners helped give the Lake Country Food Bank a $5000 boost.  🍎 🍇
 
The three were winners of a raffle held by the Rotary Club of Lake Country. The raffle itself raised a net $3317.75. An anonymous donor added $17.58, to bring the total up to some round figures -- $3333.33, exactly one-third of $10,000. And because the Food Bank’s purchasing power makes every dollar worth about 40% more, the Food Bank benefits by close to $5000.
 
Kim Sylvestre, president of the Lake Country Food Assistance Society, accepted the donation, symbolically represented by half a dozen bags and baskets of food, at O'Rourke's Peak Cellars winery on Goldie Road.
 
🍇First prize in the raffle, a paired wine dinner and tour of the winery’s cellar, valued at $600, won by Diane Johnstone of Lake Country.
🍇Second prize was a $400 gift card from Ex Nihilo Winery, won by Dan Gould of Lake Country.
🍇Third prize was a $400 gift card from Grey Monk, won by Dean Caban of Los Angeles.
 
Through Rotary’s promotion of Save-On gifts cards, which can be used to purchase groceries at Save-On-Foods, eight cents per dollar spent goes directly to the Food Bank, at no additional cost at all to the purchaser. Over $25,000 has already gone to the Food Bank through this program, plus ongoing support for other community organizations.
 
Make sure to visit our local wineries and Save On Foods to continue supporting community organizations including The Lake Country Food Bank. 🍎🥗
