Rotary Club launches car raffle
The Rotary Club of Antigua has kicked off its first major fundraising activity for the service year 2021-2022, which will see one lucky resident driving home with a brand-new car as the grand prize!
The prize car will be complete with insurance and registration.
President of the Rotary Club Ms. Joanna Spencer has called the launch, “The beginning of an exciting year of service and corporate partnership that will pave the way to the ushering in of an unforgettable 50th Rotary Anniversary in Antigua and Barbuda.”
Ms. Spencer also said that, “The success of this project will assist the club in a number of new and recurring projects that will affect thousands in our communities. Like our corporate sponsors, we urge the public to support – not only for the win – but also for the cause and the spirit of service.”
The grand prize of a Honda Fit motor car has been made possible by Antigua Motors Limited, while the insurance coverage has been provided by Anjo Insurances.
Participants will also have the opportunity to win at least three other consolation prizes: a refrigerator, compliments Town House Mega Store; a one-night stay for two at Xcape in NonSuch Bay; and a mystery prize that will be announced on the date of the draw.
These mark the main prizes, but the club has gone further by offering a series of extras that include hotel stays and dinners, spa treatments, jewelry, gift baskets, and more. All of this is up for grabs for the unit ticket cost of EC$5 only. Members of the public can also purchase tickets in bulk, with books of 12 tickets available for only EC$50. This means two complementary tickets with each book purchased.
Drawings will take place at intervals to be announced, with the grand prize drawing scheduled for November 20, 2021 at Antigua Motors on Old Parham Road.
General Manager of Antigua Motors Paul Ryan said his company “is extremely pleased to be partnering with the Rotary Club of Antigua.
“We know the challenges that organizations like themselves as well as businesses across Antigua have suffered over the last year-and-a-half. We know the struggles many individuals are facing personally, supporting themselves and their families, and we know that Rotary has reached out to help many of them during this time.”
Ryan added: “Antigua Motors, along with Honda Motor Company, has come forward to offer a brand-new Honda Fit. It comes with three years warranty and fully backed by after-sales service, insurance and registration for the winner.”
