The 2022 Monster Community Raffle was a huge success, raising $12,000 for local community groups and $4000 for the Manningham Community Fund.
The 17th annual raffle draw was held on the evening of Thursday 8 September at the Templestowe Bowling Club and streamed live on the Manningham Council Facebook page.
More than 40 people turned out in person to watch Mr Rex Harvey take out the top prize, a $5000 Coles Myer voucher. A further five lucky winners shared in prizes valued at $5000.
Council partnered with Templestowe Bowling Club to deliver this year’s raffle and Manningham Mayor, Cr Michelle Kleinert thanked everyone who sold and purchased tickets for the fantastic cause.
“It was an exciting night, and the best part was knowing that together, we had raised $16,000 which will go back to into our local community,” Cr Kleinert said.
Raffle tickets were sold for $2.00 each, with community organisations receiving $1.50, and the remaining 50 cents donated to the Manningham Community Fund.
The Community Fund was established in 1923 and supports welfare services offered by charitable organisations in our community.
