Great prizes up for grabs in fundraising sale
SUPPORTERS of 65 Roses Inc are hoping for plenty of customers when they kick off a major fundraising drive on Tuesday to help people with cystic fibrosis.
Fundraising coordinator Valarie Phillips said the generosity of locals had been crucial to getting the sale happening.
“There have been so many different prizes that have been generously donated from the community and local businesses of Mareeba and Cairns,” she said.
“We would not be able to fundraise without the generosity of the community and our fantastic vounteers.”
Prizes range from fruit and vegetables, blankets, makeup, jewellery and a $300 voucher just to name a few.
A door prize will be up for grabs, as well as 100 others prizes for the cent sale.
All money raised will go towards helping Far North Queenslanders living with cystic fibrosis and research initiatives.
Tickets are 1 cent each and will be sold in $1 bunches that can be purchased on Tuesday from Cornetts Supa IGA Mareeba or by calling 4092 7115.
The cent sale will be held on Saturday September 16 at 1pm at Mareeba Leagues club.
There will be a $3 entry fee which will include a morning tea.
