Grocery Grab 2017

To the Lions/Lioness Clubs who participated in 2016 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 2016 and again this year the Foundation ran a very successful GROCERY GRAB with Lions/Lioness Clubs from all over Australia participating in conjunction with their local supermarket. In 2016, 38 Clubs participated in this project raising $20,000.

The upcoming 2017 Grocery Grab will be held between Sunday 3rd September and Sunday 8th October. With the draw on or after the 8th October. Each year the Grocery Grab moves the dates slightly to reflect the closest date to the beginning of September and the first Sunday in October.

CONTINUING WITH MULTIPLE TICKET PRICING 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 28th July 2017.

With the fantastic level of support given to the Great Australian Grocery Grab by Lions Clubs throughout Australia the Lions Cord Blood Foundation has chosen to continue the project during 3rd September to 8th October 2017 where your Clubs‘ backing is sought once again.

The Foundation with the help of Lions and Lioness fundraising and disbursements were able to continue its funding for a research microbiologist that to quote the Director of the Bank is the lynchpin of their organisation and they could not do without her.
