A Lancaster couple won't be paying for gas or groceries for the next year, all because they chose to give back.

Tom and Jerry Etzel won $10,000 from Tops Friendly Markets on Monday after being entered into a drawing when they donated to a campaign by the grocery store to raise money for Women and Children's Hospital.

Tops Regional VP of Operations Mike Patti said, "I tell you, Western New York is a great place to live and very community-minded and the people are so generous. Women and Children's Hospital has been such an institution in Western New York for many, many years."

The campaign by Tops has been running for the past 10 years and has raised close to $1 million for Children's Hospital.
