Super One Foods of Marquette & Negaunee held cookouts on Friday & Saturday of Labor Day weekend & raised a lot of money to help UPAWS. The weather was beautiful and those grilled brats, hot dogs & hamburgers were delicious! We’d like to thank store managers Ed Czenkus & Kevin Champion, who make this happen each year & their terrific staff who handled the grill & helped serve all the hungry customers.
Because the food & drinks were donated, all proceeds from the cookouts were able to come to the shelter. Generous Super One customers also donated many needed ‘wish list’ items & dropped lots of money in our canisters.
Both stores offered paper ‘paws’ again this year in the weeks before the cookout (customers were asked to sign & donate a $1) and that added a lot to boost our total. Super One in Negaunee also offered their staff a chance to ‘dress casual’ with a donation to our shelter & that helped boost their total even more!
A Super Big thank you to Super One of Marquette & Negaunee (and their very generous customers) for helping our shelter in a big way again this year!
