St James Parish Fete and Raffle

St James Parish Fete and Raffle

We can’t have our fete this year but we are still going to have our parish raffle that we normally have during October.

Our parish, like many people and businesses within our community, are suffering financially due to the pandemic. Without the fete as our major fundraiser, this year more so than ever before, we are calling on our parish community to get behind the raffle and make it a success. All money raised will go towards paying off the church extensions.

We are looking for people or businesses to donate a prize for the raffle. Prizes must be brand new items in original packaging or perhaps you can donate a voucher. If you or your business would like to donate a raffle prize please leave a message at the parish office or contact Kevin Lloyd directly on 0439 314 572.

All proceeds will go towards the church refurbishments.

The winner of the St James Parish Feast Day Fridge Raffle was announced on Saturday 16 August.

Congratulations to the winner, Pauline Niziorski from Hoppers Crossing, who had the closest number to the actual lock combination number which was 6731.

The Raffle was a great success thanks to all of you who purchased tickets and got into the spirit of guessing combination lock numbers. Over 700 tickets were sold resulting in a profit of over $3,000 for our church extension works.

Thanks to our sponsors Thomas Carr College, Jannine Warwick, Gerry and Cherry Balolong and Beth Walsh, and to our Parish Function and Fete Committees and Parish Pastoral Council for organising the Raffle.

It’s great to be part of a Parish Community with so many people being involved and supportive.

Kind Regards,
Kevin Lloyd
