Dash at Robie’s helps North Vermilion band

Every year the North Vermilion High School Band has a raffle with the Grand Prize being a 90-second supermarket dash through Robie's Food Center in Abbeville.
This year’s dash took place on Tuesday, Feb. 26. The winner was Jeffrey Fluman. Robie's donated $100 gift certificate towards meat to the winner for the sweep.
Representatives of the NV band thanked Jim Russo and Robie’s being so gracious the last few years in helping with this project by allowing us to set up tables to sell tickets and opening up his store to do this dash.
