Blairsville, Georgiasupports Ingles Shamrock Fundraiser

Union County is a community of givers. All of the associates and managers at the local Ingles Market agree, "Blairsville is a community of caring people. The Shamrock fundraiser program is proof of people's generosity."

Customer Service Manager Tina Brown, Store Manager Matt Pilgrim, and store associate John Ruszkowski are amazed at how many customers have bought a Shamrock in the first nine days of the fundraising program. Matt Pilgrim looks through the records and quickly adds up over $1500 received so far.

Pilgrim says, "The money we raise helps send children with Muscular Dystrophy to camp. It also helps fund research and other important programs. I really want to thank the community for their tremendous support."

There is still time to purchase your own shamrock at the Blairsville Ingles. Shamrocks are available from cashiers during checkout for $1 (gold shamrocks are $5). The signed Shamrocks are then displayed near the front of the store. Windows, walls, and other available spaces are already covered with hundreds of Shamrocks. One cashier exclaims, "It's really starting to look a lot like St. Patrick's Day around here!"
