2017 Major Fundraising Raffle

ATTENTION ALL MEMBERS

As part of a major fundraising endeavour, we will be conducting a major raffle which has 10 prizes.  As our entire raffle prize pool has been very generously donated by various businesses/sponsors/members of our club, the only expense the club will incur is the cost of printing the tickets.  This is a fantastic opportunity that we have been afforded and we should make the most of it.

Books of 25 tickets will be distributed to all Squad members this week (starting today).  This will give everyone ample time to sell their entire book, and perhaps more books, before the draw date of Saturday, 9 December 2017 at our Presentation Night / Christmas Party (All ticket stubs MUST be returned to Lisa Thornton by Monday, 27 November 2017).

As it takes a lot of effort from members of our Club to organise such fundraising events, it would be greatly appreciated if ALL families associated with our club play their part and help sell the raffle tickets.  Tickets will be sold for $2 each There will be 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes awarded to the “Family” who achieves the highest number of raffle tickets sold.

Please email Lisa at vice.president@wodenswimclub.org.au when you require additional raffle books to sell.

We look forward to a very successful fundraising endeavour and as always, please email any queries to the Executive Committee at executive.committee@wodenswimclub.org.au. 

Thanks and regards
The Executive
