Even with the rising prices of gas, you don't have to cramp your cookout style or backyard bash this summer - just enter to win a raffle to cross off all your grocery store list AND help Kidzeum!  Sprint through Schnucks for either 3-minutes (First Prize) or 1-minute (Second Prize) and get practically everything on your grocery list!

Springfield & Central Illinois Trades & Labor Council, AFL-CIO is hosting a Supermarket Shopping Spree in partnership with Schnucks to benefit Kidzeum. Chances are just $10 each and can be purchased at both Springfield Schnucks locations (customer service desks).

On June 28, two winners will be drawn to participate in a 3-minute shopping spree on the Shopping Spree Date held on Saturday, July 9, 2011 at the Schnucks on Sangamon Avenue.  Proceeds benefit Kidzeum of Health and Science.
