Food Lion associates and its customers raised a record $101,149 during its “Thriller on the Griller at the Beach” events, which benefit Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. The events were held June 17-July 3 at 14 Food Lion stores located along the coasts of North Carolina and South Carolina.
“We, at Food Lion, appreciate the community’s generosity this year at our events,” said Joe Stock, director of operations at Food Lion and organizer of Thriller on the Griller at the Beach. “We had a record year and surpassed our goal by nearly $15,000. I sincerely thank Food Lion associates, vendors and customers who helped make our campaign a success.”
Funds raised will provide families with a variety of assistance, such as help with the purchase of hospital medical equipment or other needs as identified by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in North Carolina and South Carolina. Since the event’s inception a decade ago, these events have raised more than $400,000.
