The raffle this year attracted interest from 100 not-for-profit clubs who in total sold 105,000 tickets. Consequently a total amount of fundraising dollars earned by those cluds is approximately $170,000.00.
This year saw the 28th drawing of the Rotary Club of Ballarat South’s Community Fund Raising Raffle which over those 28 years has raised approximately $M4.5 for the all the particpating organisations.
Over the course of the next few weeks the winners will collect their prizes from Ballarat Mazda.
Thank you to all those who purchased tickets in the RCBS community Assistance Raffle this year.
Thanks to all clubs who sold tickets and provided themselves funds for their activities.
The cost of running the raffle to the Rotary Club of Ballarat South was around $20,000 after receiving 20% of the ticket sales.
Once again RCBS regards the raffle a success and the expenditure of funds on this project resulting in so much money raised by the particpating clubs to be worthwhile. The project is made possible by the profits raised from the Ballarat Market.
These numbers will be firmed up once this years documentation has been finalised.
The Creswick brass band entertained the crowd at the draw.
