Rugby League Cares' Community Game Raffle, 2015
The Community Game Raffle is back for its eighth year in 2015; providing clubs and schools with an exciting fund raising opportunity.
A host of fantastic prizes are again on offer with a trip for two to Miami and New York, plus £500 spending money topping the bill. Clubs and schools will also be eligible to win prizes for being the biggest sellers.
70% of all proceeds go to the club, the other 30% goes to the Rugby League Foundation (RLF - now part of Rugby League Cares). That money is then used to fund the Rugby League Cares' grassroots grants scheme.
How do I get involved?
All raffle tickets and marketing materials are provided to clubs/schools free of charge. There
are five tickets in each book and tickets should be sold at a cost of £1 with your club/school keeping 70p and the other 30p going to the Rugby League Foundation (RLF - now part of Rugby League Cares).
All you have to do is sell the tickets and your club/school keeps 70% of all you sell. Send back your sold ticket stubs to Rugby League Cares, along with the 30% of your total sales, making cheques payable to the Rugby League Foundation.
The deadline for returning ticket stubs is Thursday 5th November 2015.
The ticket stubs all go into the draw which will take place on Thursday 26th November 2015.
The 'Early Bird Draw' will be held on Friday 31st July, 2015. The club that returns the most tickets by this date will win 25 weekend passes for Magic Weekend 2016.
After your initial order if you decide you can sell some more tickets, then just let us know and we will send you another batch free of charge.
To take part all you need to do is fill out the Ticket Request Form and email it to: firstname.lastname@example.org
