Fraberts Fresh Food handed out nearly $300 in free groceries thanks to the wonderful performance of our Olympic athletes in Vancouver and Whistler over the past two weeks.  Canadians won fourteen gold medals during the Vancouver 2010 Olympics, a record performance for the Winter Games.

 “We are real Olympic fans and wanted to celebrate with our customers,” stated Jackie Fraser, who owns Fraberts Fresh Food with her husband, Chef Derek Roberts.  “This was the best Olympics ever for Canada and it was fun to come in nearly every day and reward a customer for our athletes’ gold medal performances.”

 Ballots were available for customers to fill out each time they shopped at Fraberts and one was drawn every time Canada won gold.  Congratulations to Lindsay Burnett, Joanne Wooddisse, Michelle Offer, Avis McFarlane, Colleen Cox, Patti Klein, Diane, Kathy Fitzpatrick, Dianna Burns, Jane McDougall, Lois Lanktree, Heather Pederson, Melissa Seagrove, and Angela Murphy who all won $20 in Fraberts gift certificates.

 “We are so proud of our athletes’ performances over the past two weeks,” Fraser continued.  “It was great to see our customers and Canadians everywhere get into the Olympic spirit.  Come by the store to see our Wall of Olympic Gold.”
