Grocery Grab 2018

To the Lions/Lioness Clubs who participated in 2017 congratulations on your efforts. Many Clubs took the opportunity to use the Grocery Grab as a membership drive, others gained great media exposure for their Club and from the Supermarket supporting Lions.

Beginning in 2005 through to 2017 the Foundation run a very successful GROCERY GRAB with Lions/Lioness Clubs from all over Australia participating in conjunction with their local supermarket. In 2017, 27 Clubs participated in this project raising $15,000.

The upcoming 2018 Grocery Grab will be held between the 1st September and the 6th October. With the draw on or after the 6th October. Each year the Grocery Grab moves the dates slightly to reflect the closest date to the beginning of September and the first Saturday in October. Some clubs prefer later dates and we accommodate these changes by changing the dates on the tickets to suit that club.

It had come to our attention that several Clubs wished to have the selling price of tickets raised to $2 instead of the current $1 per ticket. With the option of selling tickets - 3 for $5 (displayed inside a starbust) on the newer priced $2 ticket, giving the purchaser that option. If your Club wishes to continue selling tickets for $1 each then tick the appropriate box on this year’s Entry Form and return no later than Friday 27th July 2018.

If your club wishes to be a participating club please Click here for this Year's Entry (382KB) - To be returned by the above date.
