TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- Saint Francis Health Center teamed up with Hy-Vee on Thursday to mark the Great American Smokeout.

Smokers who handed over their cigarettes and lighters at the grocery store were rewarded with a full-sized, frozen turkey.

More than 200 people took advantage of the offer during the two-hour event.

Health officials say tobacco use remains the country's single largest preventable cause of disease and premature death.
