For the past 5 years Nossal has been fortunate to have been offered the opportunity to participate in this raffle organised by the Rotary Club of Emerald and the Ferntree Gully Motor Group. They offer a range of schools and community organisations the chance to participate and it is by far the most effective fundraiser I have seen.

For every two-dollar raffle ticket we sell – we get two dollars. That is correct – every dollar we raise comes straight to the school – thanks to the generosity of the Rotary Club and Ferntree Gully Motor group.

The prizes this year are …

1st  – Holden Equinox!

2nd – $1000 Westfield Voucher

3rd – $500 Westfield Voucher

Tickets will be on sale from now until August 5 and the prizes are drawn on August 20. We ask that all tickets be returned to the school by Monday August 6 in order for us to forward ticket butts and money to the raffle organisers.

House Points will be awarded for each book of tickets sold and the individual Tute group and student who sells the most will be eligible for a prize as well. Please support us in this – it provides much needed additional funding for the school – and is quite easy to do – many people are happy to buy a ticket or book.

I will allocate one book of tickets to each student – and when they are sold they can come to collect more. I hope this year to not have to return any unsold tickets and to raise at least $16,000. Please help.
