On August 9, Betsy Perez of Raley’s Supermarket in Grass Valley presented Hospice of the Foothills with a donation of $1,014. The donated funds were raised from a barbecue competition — hosted by the Grass Valley store — between seven Raley’s and Bel Air stores in the surrounding region. The Oroville store won first prize. Raley’s donated the food for the competition, which means that 100 percent of the proceeds were donated.
