PEORIA (25 News Now) - Shoppers in Bloomington-Normal had a chance to fill their grocery carts for a good cause.

With the help of the Bloomington-Normal Daybreak Rotary Foundation, the Hy-Vee in Bloomington held a grocery grab. Tickets were available for sale, with three lucky ticketholders winning either one, two or three minutes to race through the aisles and fill their cart.

Organizer and Daybreak Rotary member Dan Irvin says this is the first year for the event but hopes it won’t be the last. “We’re really hoping that we can take this week before Thanksgiving in the future for years and years to come and have people looking forward to this event and getting excited about it, so we can raise hopefully more and more funds and support more and more non-profits.”

This year’s proceeds went to help the Western Avenue Community Center, The Salvation Army and Home Sweet Home Ministries
