Raffle held in lieu of Opera in the Arboretum
A raffle is being run to raise money for the Rotary Club of Woy Woy, in lieu of the club's annual Opera in the Arboretum cancelled due to coronavirus restrictions.
Club president Ms Joan Redmond said the raffle went online on Friday, October 2 and had already sold tickets.
Organisers aim to raise $5000 to help support the community and a variety of different Rotary projects including the Music Therapy for Dementia project, and the Rotary Foundation that funds grants to support communities facing hardship due to the pandemic.
The raffle would have been held at this year's Opera in the Arboretum, but that event was postponed until March 2022, due to uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus pandemic.
Those who purchase tickets will go into the draw to win a variety of prizes including an oil painting by award-winning portrait painter Jocelyn Maughan valued at $3000.
Other prizes include two nights at Ettalong Beach Resort valued at $400, a mixed dozen bottles of wine and a dining voucher valued at $300, a pair of single vision glasses valued at $299 and four rounds of golf at Shelly Beach Golf Club valued at $260.
A barbecue, an impact drill and restaurant vouchers round out the prizes.
The raffle will be drawn at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, November 24 at Everglades Country Club.
