- Boats up for grabs in $400,000 raffle bonanza
- September 25, 2012
Marine Rescue NSW has launched its largest ever fundraising campaign, with a $400,000 bonanza of fishing boats to be won over summer.
MRNSW units along the coastline and on the Alpine Lakes will be raffling boat, motor and trailer packages valued at almost $9000.
From the Northern Rivers south, our supporters and those keen to get on the water will be lining up for tickets to win an MR384 AnglaPro runabout - specially built and named for Marine Rescue NSW -fitted with a 9.9 HP 4-stroke fuel-injected Suzuki outboard, on a Dunbier trailer.
With room for four people and all the tackle you’ll need on board, the sturdy AnglaPro is ideal for a day’s fishing on sheltered waters.
At 3.84m, the first prize boat features a white-painted aluminium hull, two extra-large seats and a generous carpeted floor area. It comes with a safety kit including two lifejackets, anchor and chain, torch, bailing kit, V sheet, air horn and oars and the A-frame trailer will be registered.
The summer raffle campaign kicked off at this year’s Sydney International Boat Show, with Marine Rescue volunteers kept busy selling tickets to supporters keen to win a similar package featuring an AnglaPro Lite 374 boat.
Commissioner Stacey Tannos said the organisation’s new fundraising effort would start in coming weeks, with the roll-out of boat-motor-trailers to units starting in October.
“This is a major fundraising initiative to support our volunteers’ work to assist the boating community,” he said.
“A number of units regularly hold similar raffles and have a great track record of success, attracting a lot of support and raising significant funds as people enter to win this popular prize.
“We’re supplying our units with this terrific prize to help them maximise the funds they can raise. “We’d encourage everyone in the community to support their local volunteers’ raffle by making sure they’re in it to win it.”
