Crime-fight group draws on raffle
RAFFLES. An excellent way to turn $1 into a hamper full of socially lubricating beverages and delicious food, an outdoor setting and carton of beer.
Crime Stoppers, with the help of some Warwick businesses and philanthropic residents, pulled together and raised $437 for the anonymous hotline where the public can dob in a crim and receive a bounty if the call results in a conviction.
Stockyard Hotel owner Tony Koflin donated a hamper full of wonder for the cause and his was the lucky fingers, which drew winners from the Crime Stoppersraffle.
First place went to K Hennings, who was the recipient of the hamper donated by the Stockyard Hotel to the value of $250.
Second place was a three piece outdoor setting from Bunnings Warwick and went to MP Gillespie.
The third ticket to be pulled from the silver bowl was B Wells, who was the happy recipient of a carton of beer donated by Celebrations Bottle Shop.
Warwick Crime Stoppers committee member Ziggy Holter acted like a spritely Santa and called all the lucky winners.
“They were all really excited,” Mr Holter said.
“We are so thankful for the all the community support.”
