A local businessman has come up with a new way to celebrate his company’s anniversary and help collect donations for the local food bank.
Brian Lee, owner of Lee’s Fine Jewellery, is kicking off a food drive as part of the store’s 31st anniversary.
The public is invited to bring canned food donations to the store in return for “Bling Bling Bucks.” These certificates can be collected, and the top six people with the most bucks, will win one of six available prizes, which have a combined worth of more than $10,000.
For each can of vegetables donated, a participant will receive 200 BB bucks. Canned fish or meat products donated are worth 400. All food collected will go to the Abbotsford Food Bank.
Other ways to earn bucks are by redeeming the store’s weekly newspaper ad, which runs every Tuesday and Thursday in The News, or by returning a weekly postcard that will be mailed out.
No purchase is necessary to participate.
Prizes include an 18ct emerald and diamond ring valued at $5,795; a 1/2 ct. diamond pendant and chain valued at $2,950; a pendant with sterling silver omega valued at $625, and other items.
Donations will be accepted at Les’s Fine Jewellery, 2545 McCallum Rd., Abbotsford during regular store hours.
