New VGSR Supporters

VGSR is very pleased to share the exciting news about new and very generous Supermarket Chain donors.

Peapod is supporting both the upcoming VGSR Silent Auction – generously donating 4 $50 Gift Cards – as well as the Tournament, itself, by providing items for the players. For those of you who are not familiar with Peapod, it was founded in 1989, and has grown to be one of America's leading Internet grocers. Peapod began servicing communities in Virginia and Maryland, partnering with Giant Food, in 2001. Peapod’s local service area now includes DC, also - covering many of the same geographic areas as VGSR supports. Peapod prides itself on exceeding customer's expectations and providing friendly and superior service for each and every customer. “The company stands by its 100% Satisfaction Guarantee - meaning that if something about the shopping experience or order is not to a customer's liking, Peapod will make it right.” Never tried Peapod by Giant? Visit and enter VIP Code: EM105287 in the designated area during checkout to receive a special offer. The gift cards are redeemable not only at Peapod but can be used at Giant, Super G, Stop & Shop, and Martins – all Peapod sister organizations. We want to thank Steve, a MD manager at Peapod by Giant, for his generosity to VGSR and his love of dogs. Steve met one of our wonderful VGSR volunteers at the dog park - and a great friendship began. Steve will be playing at the Tournament - so please look for him and give him a very special thank you.

Wegmans is a regional grocery chain which has been expanding its presence in the Virginia area. Many of the local Wegmans' stores are "superstores" with a large variety of foods aimed at an upscale market. Wegmans responded positively to our request for donations - both the Lake Manassas and Sterling Wegmans’ store managers donated gift cards for our Auction. We hope that this is the beginning of a great friendship between VGSR and Wegmans!

Harris Teeter’s Ashburn store showed its generosity by provided gift cards for our Auction. While Harris Teeter started as a Southern grocery chain, we find many stores in our local area which provide “exceptional customer service and newly "branded" departments.” On your next visit to the Ashburn store, please let them know you appreciate their donation to VGSR.
