Last chance to be in it to win it!

November 29, 2020 BY

WHILE the pandemic may have put the kybosh on so many community events this year, including the annual SpringFest Market Sunday, it hasn’t stopped the drive to support the event’s community partners.

That’s why when it became clear SpringFest couldn’t go ahead in traditional sense, the Rotary Club of Ballarat and organiser Nicole Bartlett stepped up with a new idea.

“Organising SpringFest is a 12-month process and our community partners rely on the money the market raises to run some important activities,” Ms Bartlett said.

“That’s where the idea of the Ultimate SpringFest Online Raffle came from. For just $5 a ticket you go in with a chance to win one of a hundred amazing prize packs with a total value of over $18,000, all donated by SpringFest’s wonderful sponsors and stall holders.”

All money raised as part of the raffle goes directly to supporting the Rotary Club of Ballarat’s activities and the event’s five community partners: Ballarat Chinese Dragon Boat Club, Mount Egerton Primary School, Miners Rest Primary School and Kindergarten, Phoenix P-12 Community College and Bungaree Primary School.

But there’s not a lot of time left to get involved.

“Ticket sales close at 1pm on Sunday,” Ms Bartlett said. “Why not grab some tickets, be in with a chance for some great prizes, and support many worthy causes? Just visit to take part.

“If you’d normally join us up at the lake on the last Sunday of November, taking part in the Ultimate SpringFest Online Raffle is the next best thing!”

The Ultimate SpringFest Online Raffle will be drawn live on the Ballarat Times and SpringFest Facebook pages at 2pm on Sunday, 29 November.
