BayPort Credit Union President and CEO Jim Mears awarded 3-minute shopping sprees at local Kroger stores across Hampton Roads.
The shopping spree locations include Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Portsmouth, Suffolk, Smithfield, Hampton, Newport News, Tabb, Hayes, Gloucester, and Grafton.
Participants will have three minutes to fill their grocery carts with as many items as possible! BayPort will livestream the shopping spree winners in action at each location on both Facebook and Instagram.
The 12 winners, who range in age from 19 to 89, were chosen at random from over 60,000 BayPort members and 4.5 million entries to win a 3-minute shopping spree at area Kroger stores in a contest sponsored by BayPort Credit Union.
In partnership with The Salvation Army of the Virginia Peninsula, BayPort will provide one special Salvation Army family the opportunity to fill two grocery carts with items of their choosing in an effort to bring joy and meaning to their holiday season.
