Fundraiser Raffle


After three months of selling tickets at markets, in homes and on the streets of Lismore and Casino our first raffle for 2021 was drawn on Monday March 1. The Lismore Mayor, Vanessa Ekins (pictured) pulled the winning tickets at Friends of the Koala along with Burribi our mascot and volunteers Lola Whitney and Debbie Gooley.

  • 1st prize was won by Danny Flynn – A Flow Hive 2 donated by Flow
  • 2nd prize was won by Rhonda James – two nights’ accommodation at the Ramada Hotel Suites Ballina and Byron Bay
  • 3rd prize was won by Ann Vernall – A Wanderer’s Camp Chair by BCF
  • 4th prize was won by Josh Turton – $100 Bunnings Voucher 

The raffle fundraising team, headed up by Debbie, would like to sincerely thank everyone involved especially the raffle sellers and the generous businesses that donated prizes. We raised over $5000 which will help towards our daily operating costs. 

Big thank you to everyone involved!
