The 2013 Lincoln Wine and Food Experience raised more than $37,000 for the Lincoln Community Playhouse. The event, presented by Russ’s Market, has raised nearly $170,000 in five years.
More than 700 people attended the Lincoln Wine and Food Experience, held Feb. 22 at Embassy Suites, to sample wine and food from more than 80 vendors. The total funds raised include proceeds from a silent auction.
“We’re grateful to our friends who support the Lincoln Wine and Food Experience,” said Pat Raybould, president of B&R Stores Inc. “The Lincoln Community Playhouse is a great resource for our city, and Russ’s Market is glad to help the playhouse provide outstanding productions and educational programs.”
B&R Stores Inc., a Lincoln, Neb.-based employee-owned company, was founded in 1964 by Russ Raybould. Since then the company has grown to include four store concepts (Russ’s Market, Super Saver, Save Best Foods and Grand Central Apple Market) located in seven cities across Nebraska and Iowa.
