Donation and a raffle.
John Kunde has generously constructed and DONATED a gorgeous whirly gig to the Donkey Society of Queensland – aren’t we lucky?
Please see the image below: this is not the actual article but very similar.
We’ve decided that the only fair way to help the ‘kick ass’ garden ornament find it’s forever home is to raffle it. Now, of course, we know you can’t wait to get your tickets so we’ve made the process very easy. Tickets are very reasonably priced at $2 each, three for $5 or six for $10 (what a bargain!). Tickets can be purchased by contacting our Treasurer, Sue Greenwood. We can accept payment via bank transfer or cheque.
All proceeds from the raffle will, of course, go back into your club so everybody who buys a ticket wins really because we’ll be raising money for the club (how can you resist that?). Quick, get your tickets today. Payment can be made to: BSB: 084 835 A/C: 733 839 604 (Donkey Society of Queensland) Please advise Sue of your purchase by email firstname.lastname@example.org
Could you please also attach the receipt for payment for Sue’s records. Sue will then email your tickets back to you.
The date of drawing will be publised here and on Facebook.
