Gorta Launches €5,000 Raffle

29th July 2013
The first Gorta €5,000 raffle has launched across Ireland today. The overall winner of the raffle will receive a total prize of €5,000 with second and third prizes set at €2,000 and €1,000 respectively. As well as this, there is a cash prize of €1,000 for the person who sells the most tickets.

This summer, Gorta is mobilizing all our loyal supporters together for our very first raffle! It is your donations and support that make a big difference in ensuring the continuation of Gorta’s long-term projects.

Gareth Crowe, Gorta’s Community Fundraising and Volunteering Manager said, “This raffle will make a very big difference to four lucky winners with cash prizes to be won for the top three out of the hat, as well as for the best ticket seller. The prize fund of the raffle is derived wholly from tickets sales and any money raised will go directly towards those most in need. Our work enables men, women and children in sub-Saharan Africa improve their well-being and create healthy futures for themselves.”

“The donations of the Irish public make a huge difference to the work that Gorta carries out overseas. We are now asking the Irish public to come together for our very first raffle and help us to continue the fight against hunger and poverty.

“While we are aware that times are challenging for a lot of people, the Irish public has always been so generous in spirit and I’m confident that they will pull together for Gorta once again. Like most other sectors, NGOs have felt the burden of budget cuts and spending limitations and fundraising campaigns have had to be ramped up significantly.

The raffle closing date is Monday 14th October with the winner being announced on Friday, 18th October. Tickets cost €5 per ticket or a book of 6 for €25. For more information call 01 661 5522 or download the full terms and conditions.
