Club raises $6000 in Melbourne Cup sweep
The Rotary Club of Woy Woy has raised $6156 wih the sale of 6072 tickets in its Melbourne Cup Trifecta.
"Again it has been a wonderful result for the Rotary Club of Woy Woy," said sweep co-ordinator Mr Charles Brock.
"We were completely sold out at 2.50pm on the Monday."
He said it was an outstanding effort by the club members who took up the task of selling tickets at Deepwater Plaza.
"Many members completed more than one shift each.
"It was not easy this year with Covid 19 restrictions.
"We had ticket outlets at BlueWave Living, Blooms Pharmacy Umina Beach, Booker Bay General Store, My Tile Co and Eagles Plumbing on Ocean Beach Road.
"This local support contributed greatly to our annual effort."
Mr Brock said the top ticket sellers were club members: "Mr Vic Brown who managed to secure a healthy donation in selling 150 tickets, and Mr Wayne Jennings who sold 575 tickets."
