Everybody needs groceries and that’s the aim of the annual summer raffle fundraiser by Voice of Vashon. The grand prize is a shopping spree at Vashon Thriftway.

“Our test run rang up a total of over $2,000 when we rehearsed the spree using the raffle rules of play,” said VoV Executive Director Lisa Breen. “Three minutes of shopping probably doesn’t seem like much but that’s why we tested it out and it’s really surprising how much you can get into your cart in that time.”

Whoever wins the raffle will put together a three-member team to do the shopping. The rules allow the winner to bring along two spotters to race ahead and point the shopper to the best merchandise in the store. The team of three will have three minutes to fill as many carts as they can. The team is encouraged to visit in advance to plan out their sprint through the store.

“Thanks to this generous support from Vashon Thriftway, the raffle funds will go directly to our community broadcasting mission. That includes KVSH 101.9FM, the Emergency Alert System, and our public access television station,” said VoV Board President Rik Reed.

VoV will launch this year’s raffle on July 1 and it will run through the end of the month, including Strawberry Festival. The winner will be drawn at the Jean Bosch Broadcast Studio on First Friday, August. 2nd.

The grand prize is the shopping spree and there are five second prizes of $50 Thriftway gift cards. Tickets are $20 each and if you buy four tickets you get a fifth one free.
