A 10-minute shopping spree was recently raffled as a fund-raiser by the Cameron-J. Jarvis Troup Municipal Library.
Michelle Best, of Henderson, was the winner and completed the shopping spree, held Thursday, March 7, at the Troup Brookshire’s location. The groceries in her cart added up to $1,479.44.
“It was surprising how long 10 minutes was, it was never a completely mad race,” stated Melanie Brumit, director at the Troup Library.
The gross amount raised for the library was $6,000, according to Brumit. Though they did pay for the groceries from the raffle proceeds, Brookshire’s paid a portion as a donation to the library.
“We may do this again next year,” Brumit added, noting that the fundraiser went well. “Everyone has to eat.”
Plans are already underway for the library’s next fundraiser. The library will host its annual fall luncheon Saturday, Sept. 14. Liz Ballard, executive director of the Tyler Rose Festival and director of the Tyler Rose Museum, is the scheduled speaker for the event. Information regarding tickets will be released soon.
