The Community Raffle 2019 was completed and drawn on Wednesday 29 May by Tanya Wilkinson from HelloWorld Travel. This year, there were 60 clubs and groups participating, which was up on last year. This year 47,850 tickets issued, and 30,225 sold. Sales represent 63% of tickets issued. This good effort by all concerned means that after expenses a dividend of $1.50 was paid out.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions the Community Raffle for 2020 has been extended as follows:
- The close date of the raffle 7 April 2021;
- Draw date of the raffle 28 April 2021; and
- Publication date of winner(s) name(s) 1 May 2021
One of Frankston North Rotary’s signature projects is the annual Community Raffle. The raffle has been running over the past 27 years and has returned more than $1.7 million to local community groups, schools and clubs. Local clubs, schools or community groups sell tickets for $2.00 each, and to date a dividend of $1.50 per ticket sold was been paid back to these groups. How easy is that! Frankston North Rotary organises the prizes, permits, prints the tickets and oversee the running of the raffle. This year 33,000 tickets were sold.
Your local club, school or community group can raise funds simply by participating in the raffle. All you need to do is to sell as many tickets as you choose, and you receive the major part of the proceeds from your tickets for fund raising. Ticket sales usually start in February and finish in May. Prizes are drawn in the first week of June.
First prize this year was a dream holiday valued at $12,000, won by Sarah Mataoga; second prize was a South Pacific Carnival Cruise valued at $5000, won by Julie Johnson; third prize was a Hisense 65″ UHD Smart TV valued at $2000, won by Pino Iulianetti; and forth prize was a security door valued at $1000, won by Margaret Baird. Congratulations to the lucky winners.

Peninsular Link Community Day BBQ
On Sunday 25 November 2012, Peninsula Link held a Community Day. This was a once-in-a-lifetime chance to walk on Peninsula Link before it opened to traffic in early 2013.
There were more than 20 stalls providing information about the project, as well as local businesses and community groups.
Frankston North Rotary held a fund-raising BBQ where Members and Friends of Rotary helped raise much needed funds which will go towards local and overseas community projects.
