SAFEWAY TO HOLD SKI RACE TO BENEFIT EASTER SEALS

 CLACKAMAS, Ore., Feb. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Safeway announced today it will hold the Seventh Annual Safeway Easter Seals Invitational Ski Race on Feb. 9 and 10 at Mt. Hood Meadows.
 The two-day fund-raising event is the creation of Walt Kellogg, a long-time Safeway employee and, until his retirement in January 1993, manager of Safeway's Deli Merchandising operations for Safeway stores in Oregon and Southwest Washington. During the event's six-year history, over $358,000 has been donated to the Oregon Easter Seal Society, making this event one of the largest and most successful Easter Seal fund- raising events in the state.
 The Safeway Easter Seals Invitational Ski Race is open to all interested parties, but an observer would see a veritable "Who's Who" of the retail grocery industry -- all skiing for Easter Seals. Participation in the event includes two days of skiing and racing, lunches on both days, dinner and live entertainment, as well as a Calcutta (fund-raising) Auction, held immediately after Tuesday night's dinner.
 According to Safeway's Race Coordinator, Lee Cutbirth:
 "This year's event promises to be one of the best ever. The snow conditions are next to perfect. Everyone involved has a great time -- whether they choose to cheer their favorite racing team, serve as a volunteer or actually race. All participants come away with a warm feeling in their heart since all proceeds are donated to a very worthy cause -- Easter Seals. This year, Safeway's goal is to raise $200,000, which will bring Safeway's overall donation to Easter Seals to over $500,000."
 The event begins on Tuesday, Feb. 9, at 10:30 a.m. and runs through Wednesday afternoon. The entry fee of $100 includes two lift tickets, two lunches, snacks and dinner Tuesday night. For more information, contact Cutbirth at Safeway's Division Office.
