  • Big raffle boosts local groups

    Twenty-eight local organisations benefited from the Community Raffle conducted by the Lions Club of Portarlington/Drysdale.
    By participating in the raffle, the organisations shared in ticket sales of $22,628. Unlike other raffles, all money raised by the Lions Community Raffle is returned to the participating organisations (ticket sellers), such as local schools, sporting clubs, etc. thereby keeping the money in the local community.
    The Lions Club manages the running of the raffle and provides the prizes, obviating the need for participating organisations to run their own raffles.
    The Lions Community Raffle is one of the Club’s major annual projects and has paid out more than $122,000 since it was launched in 2010.
    Tickets were sold during July-August with big sellers including the Bellarine Anglican Parish, Winged Horse Equine Welfare, Drysdale Sport Fishing Club, Drysdale Soccer Club and Portarlington Football/Netball Club.
    Thirteen prizes totaling $4,000 in value were drawn during a special function at Portarlington Golf Club on 30 August.
    The Lions Club thanks all those businesses who generously contributed raffle prizes and all those who purchased tickets.
