Footy fan’s big raffle win, raising $3500 for CareFlight
WARWICK Lions Club has continued to support RACQ CareFlight, drawing the winner of a raffle which raised $3500 for the emergency service.
The coveted raffle prize was a framed Brisbane Broncos jersey signed by players and coach Wayne Bennett, an item suggested by Lion John Binney.
Both football fans, raffle winner Kathie Lee and husband Stephen, were thrilled to win the jersey that sold 2500 tickets for the two-month raffle campaign.
"I buy the raffle tickets all the time," Mrs Lee said.
"I get them any opportunity I get because of the job they do in the community."
Warwick Lions Club president Con Lo Giudice said club members were excited to cap off their 2015 fundraising efforts with the raffle.
"The money we will go straight to CareFlight when we present the cheque at our first meeting in January," Mr Lo Giudice said.
"The project was promoted by salon owner Clare Jeffries and the frame was paid for by the club."
"We plan to keep giving to CareFlight through our fundraising projects.
"I would like to thank all the community for their support."
