Sally winning Card Draw May 2015

Members Card Draw Won By Sally

Congratulations Sally Winning the 2nd Only Card Draw

At the Social Meeting in May 2015 Sally drew the Joker for the Pack of Cards during the Members Card Draw. By winning the raffle Sally won $792 for her $5 investment. Sally winning Card Draw May 2015

So you ask,
Q/ “How does the Members Card Draw Work”

A/ At every Social and Dinner meeting held by the Lions Club of Sanctuary Cove Hope Island Members can buy raffle tickets in the Members Card Draw at $2 each or 3 for $5. During the meeting a raffle ticket is drawn and that winning Member selects a card from the pack of cards. If the member selects the Joker (only one in the pack) then they win the jack pot from previous Card Raffles.

However if they select any other card from the pack, that card is destroyed and the pack of cards has one less card for the next meetings card draw. The money collected from the raffle is divided 50/50, half into the Card Raffle winning pot and the other half goes into the clubs general account to help subsidise members fees and help with running costs of the club.

So the idea of the Card Raffle is to have a bit of fun, encourage 100% attendance and to subsidise membership costs.

The inaugural Members Card Draw went down to the very last card & that was won by Kaz in 2013 & the amount was over $2,000.

Guest Speaker 15th Sept Hetty Johnston from Bravehearts

The Lions Club of Sanctuary Cove Hope Island are fortunate to have Hetty Johnston founder of Bravehearts as or guest speaker on Monday 15th September 2014.

Our Lions Club is proud to support the good work carried out by Hetty and her team at Bravehearts.

Bravehearts’ key purpose is to educate, empower and protect Australian kids from sexual assault.

Since its inception in 1997, Bravehearts has successfully moved this once taboo subject out of the shadows and into the light. As a result of its persistence, this distinction was acknowledged and supported by the Commonwealth Government and its COAG partners via the National Framework for the Protection of Australia’s Children (2009-2020).

It is only through increasing general awareness, increasing skills and capacity building for those working and living with children, preventative strategies, education and strong policies and legislation that we can accomplish Our Mission – to stop child sexual assault in society. Our specialist services are instrumental in preventing the sexual assault of Australian children and giving hope and healing to the most vulnerable and precious members of our community – our kids

As expected the Lions Club of Sanctuary Cove Hope Island took out the most prizes on the day.

Although the Race Day on the Gold Coast was a wash out & not one horse to to the track, we all had a few group flutters on other races & watch the screen rather than the track. We ended up even at the end of the day.

The fundraiser was organised by the Breast Cancer Council Queensland & representing the The Lions Club of Sanctuary Cove Hope Island was Raewyn & Brian, Kaz & Dave, Peter & the good Doctor Laurie.
