Slurpee Name Your Price Day was another success.

The annual fundraiser at 7-Eleven Canada generated $109,900 nationally for Food Banks Canada, supporting local food banks.

“Slurpee fans have once again demonstrated their commitment to a worthy cause,” says Raj Kapoor, 7-Eleven vice-president.

“We’re pleased to be able to help Slurpee fans significantly support those in need in our communities.”

Participating in the fundraiser were the 7-Eleven stores in the North Okanagan.

The $109,900 donation is equal to providing Canadians in need with 330,000 meals.

“We’d like to take this opportunity to thank our loyal customers for being so generous and for making it such a fun and exciting day,” said Kapoor.
