Paula Raine from Ray White Commercial in Christchurch is not only one of our most successful real estate salespeople in Christchurch but she is also a keen shopper and has recently proved her shopping ability by being selected to compete in the Nestle $500 Grocery Grab.
Paula started in aisle one at New World South City and was allowed 90 seconds to grab any Nestle branded groceries to the value of $500. Paula was given an information sheet as homework to be able to identify the Nestle products for the grocery grab. Paula gave us a rundown of the programme before she attended the grocery grab and was extremely confident that she would not only get to the $500 budget but would exceed the amount by having a high degree of knowledge as to where the highest priced items were.
Paula is recognised for her community work and in a twist to the grocery grab, Paula, in conjunction with Ray White Christchurch Commercial, decided to gift the total grocery grab items to Ronald McDonald House in the South Island. Paula said that it was great to be able to donate the proceeds of the grocery grab to Ronald McDonald House given it is such a worthwhile cause.
Paula went out and purchased special shoes and can be seen in the photo in her race gear being egged on by husband Adrian Raine together with her support crew. Paula certainly did not let the kids down at Ronald McDonald House as she chose things that she loved as a child, which was mainly chocolate.
At checkout time Paula exceeded all expectations, however there was some question marks around who she intended gifting the Purina One dog food to.
