Last Friday the Burringbar Community Association Inc. held a community fundraiser for several local organisations.
For weeks the Burringbar community have been busy selling raffle tickets, the prize a double pass to Splendour In the Grass donated by Splendour!
Every community group and local school was involved. The idea was that each organisation got to keep the proceeds of the raffle tickets they sold – the harder they worked, the more money they would raise with cheques presented at the raffle draw.
Between the eight community group, $3,400 was raised. The Burringbar benefactors of the raffle are Gumnut Preschool, the primary school, the Sports Club, the bowls club, the Touch Football Club, Waratah’s Hockey Club, the local Rural Fire Service and the School of Arts.
The raffle was drawn by Maddie Zambellie from Mel’s on Broadway Bistro at Burringbar Sports Club and the winner was Burringbar local Jason Heffernan.
Organisers want to thank the Splendour In The Grass management for supporting their village.
Anyone living in the Burringbar-Mooball area is welcome to join the Burringbar Community Association, it’s only $5 per financial year.
