No market, but a big raffle

- prettypine­fathersday.

The annual Pretty Pine Father’s Day Market may have been cancelled because of COVID-19 lockdown and ongoing restrictio­ns, but its famous big raffle will still go ahead as planned.

With a total prize pool of more than $2500, there are three amazing prizes to be won.

First prize is a ‘one-off’ 10 piece Katana 18 volt toolkit, valued at $1405 and donated by AgSpares Deniliquin.

Second prize is a $799 38L Engel prize pack, donated by Nutrien Deniliquin.

Third prize, valued at $339, is a Weber Baby Q Premium from Mitre 10 Deniliquin.

‘‘Don’t miss this chance to win one of three amazing prizes, thanks to our amazing sponsors,’’ market committee member Ben Chartres said.

‘‘There’s no excuse as you can now buy your ticket online.

‘‘Otherwise, you can pop in to the Pretty Pine Pub and say hello, and grab yourself one in person there.’’

Mr Chartres said while the committee would have preferred to host their event in full for the regional community, continuing with the raffle was the next best thing.

‘‘We want to say a huge thank you to our sponsors who support the event each year, and were prepared to do the same this year before restrictio­ns tightened again.’’

The raffle will be drawn on Father’s Day, Sunday, September 5. Winners will be notified via phone and social media.
