At St. Anthony’s, we never cease to be amazed by the support we receive from our Bay Area community—support that makes our work possible each and every day. But our donors are more than just generous. So often, we’re impressed by their creativity, ingenuity, and sense of fun. That’s why we’re kicking off a series of blog posts about St. Anthony’s donors who, in their commitment to supporting those in need, also find ways to flex their creative muscles, sharpen their competitive edge, or have a good time with friends.
This year’s event featured fun and intense competition that generated a serious donation of food goods for St. Anthony’s Dining Room. After the teams completed their shopping and winners were declared (for whom there were prizes of restaurant and Starbucks gift cards), participants headed over to St. Anthony’s with $1700 worth of groceries taking up 6 carloads. Over the course of a morning, Beau and Evan and their Supermarket Sweep participants managed to bring together a group of friends, engage in some fun competition, and impact the lives of San Francisco’s poor and homeless in a positive way. Thanks Beau, Evan, and all Supermarket Sweep competitors for your generosity and your ingenuity!
