A MONSTER thank you to all the schools and community groups for participating in this year’s MONSTER Raffle, especially to those that were new this year. We really do value all schools and community groups that have, over the years, been involved in selling tickets and raising much needed funds for their school or community group, as well as supporting Scouts.
In 2017 the raffle was more MONSTER than last year! We sold more than 312,000 tickets and raised just over $596,000 for schools, community groups and our Scout groups. Also our prize pool value was increased by $10,000 to nearly $60,000. This year’s winning ticket was again sold by a school. The major prize winner, Sarah, was very excited to receive a new car.
A special shout out to Yarralinda School who have been a very loyal raffle participant over the years. They sold ALL their tickets – oh, they lost one ticket! In addition they were one of our highest ticket selling school/community group.
Now to next year’s raffle, don’t forget to include us in your plans for next year’s fundraising activities. We will be in touch with details of next year’s raffle as soon as we can. At this early stage we are looking to have similar timings as we had this year (start selling in June, finish in August).
We are always looking for ways to improve our raffle and would love to hear from you with any feedback. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call on (03)8543 9870.
