Sarpy Chamber YPG Supermarket Sweep Supports Tri-City Food Pantry
The Sarpy County Chamber of Commerce (www.SarpyChamber.org) recently held their first ever Supermarket Sweep fundraising event, hosted by one of their groups, the Sarpy Chamber Young Professionals. It was held at Hy-Vee in Shadow Lake Towne Center and benefited the Tri-City Food Pantry.
Much like the classic Supermarket Sweep game show, contestants raced through the aisles of Hy-Vee with a clock counting down the seconds as they had to find the correct items on their assigned list. Many Sarpy County businesses and organizations registered teams, completely filling up spots with a total of 30 teams of 2 to 3 members competing.
All proceeds from team registration fees went to the Tri-City Food Pantry, which serves people struggling with hunger in the communities of Ralston, La Vista, Papillion and surrounding areas. Donations at the event were also accepted, bringing the total funds raised to just over $700. Food items were also collected.
The enthusiastic feedback has the Sarpy Chamber eager to expand the Supermarket Sweep Fundraiser and offer more events like this in the future.
