October 4, 2011 · Updated 2:14 PM
The 36th annual Coupeville Lions Shopping Spree will be held on Saturday, Nov. 12 at the Prairie Center Red Apple. The winner will have three minutes to pick up as many items as they can. Alcohol and tobacco products are excluded. Meats are not included in the spree, but a $50 certificate for meat is given to the winner.
Tickets are $1 or 6 for $5 and will be on sale during the Business Expo, Oct. 15 and 16, at the Coupeville Lions Club booth in the high school gym.
Tickets will also be on sale Oct. 28, 29, and Nov. 4 and 5 at the Red Apple; and at Whidbey Island Bank Oct. 28 and Nov. 4. The winning ticket will be drawn on Wednesday evening, Nov. 9, at the Lions meeting and the winner will be notified by phone from the meeting.
Proceeds from the ticket sales support the Lions community programs such as the Food Bank, Gifts from the Heart and Help House. Some winners in the past have even donated their Shopping Spree to the food bank. Find a Lion, buy some tickets and join the fun in supporting your community.
