The Netball WA Community Raffle has concluded for 2019, with the initiative once again strongly embraced by the West Australian netball community.
This year saw more than 35,500 tickets sold, with 60% of funds raised returned to Associations and Clubs and the remaining 40% placed in a Community Facilities Fund.
Paua Rose Netball Club was the top selling metropolitan club, distributing over 3,500 tickets and the Hurricanes Netball Club taking out the title for regional clubs, selling over 1,200 tickets.
Since its inception, the raffle has raised more than $280,000, with over $180,000 returned to Associations and Clubs, some receiving in excess of $2,000 each, and they have utilised this money for a variety of projects ranging from equipment purchases and end of season events to off-setting costs for athletes in talent development programs.
Netball WA General Manager of Community Netball, Liz Booth, thanked the netball community for their ongoing support.
“The Netball WA Community Raffle is an excellent way for Clubs and Associations to fundraise and ensure netball in WA has access to quality facilities,” Booth said.
“I thank those who supported the Netball Community Raffle this year and encourage others to get involved next year.”
