WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. – Tops Friendly Markets, a leading full-service grocery retailer in New York, northern Pennsylvania, and Vermont, is pleased to announce the winner of its annual Free Gas & Groceries Campaign. The campaign which ran October 1 – October 14, 2022 at all participating Tops locations raised $14,671 for Golisano Children’s Hospital.

This year’s winners, Peggy and Gary Ferguson, from Holland Patent, NY were recently presented with their prize of free gas and groceries at the Tops located in Boonville, NY by store manager Scott Hutchinson.

During the campaign Tops shoppers were encouraged to make a difference for families in their own backyard while having a chance to win a year's worth of gas and groceries from Tops Friendly Markets. Customers simply purchased a $1 ticket and supported the dedicated and caring staff at Upstate Golisano Children's Hospital who are making miracles happen every day for our most precious asset...our children. Since the campaigns inception, over $269,000 has been raised!

“At Tops it is our belief that by enhancing the quality of life for children through education and excellent health care, we build a strong future together,” said John Persons, president of Tops Friendly Markets. “Our support of the Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital over the years has a long and rich history and we are proud to support such a wonderful institution that provides the much needed care for those in need in our community.”
