Ten corporate suite tickets and a behind-the-scenes tour is being raffled to the Dolphins NRL final home game of the 2023 season to raise funds for local charity Give a Child a Chance.
In a bid to help raise money for members of disadvantaged families, developer and home builder Ausbuild has partnered with Dynamic Bradview (DB) Roofing to donate the ultimate VIP experience to the Dolphins V Warriors game at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday, September 2.
One lucky winner and nine friends will be treated to a private behind-the-scenes tour of Suncorp Stadium, including unprecedented locker room access, before catching all the action and enjoying food and beverages in the comfort of a corporate suite.
Ausbuild Joint Managing Director Matthew Bell says he’s pleased to offer the prize to raise much-needed funds for the Give a Child a Chance (GACAC) network of children and families.
“As community partners of the Dolphins, we are privileged to be in a position to connect with the local community and raise awareness and money for social issues impacting our region and its families,” Mr Bell says.
“We’re proud to support this local organisation dedicated to improving the education experiences of disadvantaged school children across 29 independent and state schools throughout Moreton Bay.
“The best part is, that with every raffle ticket purchased, supporters will not only be going into the draw to win this incredible prize, they’ll also directly contribute to transforming the lives of children who face economic and social hardships.”
Making a difference
GACAC President Bill Heraghty says at the heart of the organisation is its mission to create opportunities for underprivileged youth in the City of Moreton Bay.
He is grateful for Ausbuild and DB Roofing’s support.
“With the cost of living continuing to put a strain on disadvantaged and vulnerable families, many are struggling to find the money for school supplies and extracurricular activities, with children going without,” he explains.
“The life-changing difference we’ve seen in the children that have received our support, especially brand-new uniforms or laptops is heartwarming. I often compare this moment to turning on a light in a darkened room.
“Our volunteers have worked with children too embarrassed to go to school for an entire year because they didn’t have a school uniform, but that quickly changes when they feel like they fit in amongst their peers.
“GACAC is truly honoured to be the beneficiary of such an extraordinary prize and the money raised through this raffle will help to support these vulnerable families and get more kids back to school, where they belong.”
Tickets are on sale now to the raffle, with the lucky winner to be announced at 9am on Monday, August 28.
