Cook Classic Raffle Draw

Once again the Cook Community Classic drew to a close with the drawing of the fundraising raffle on Saturday 1st December. The raffle is the main fundraising arm of the Cook Classic and to date since its inception in 2008 the raffle has raised over $720,000 for local community groups.

This brings the total of funds raised across all Classic events to $1.18 million 11 years. Shared across 78 community groups in the St George and Sutherland Shire areas.

Whilst I couldn’t be there for the 2018 Cook Classic Raffle Draw, I was very pleased to see the raffle drawn by IMB Bank CEO Rob Ryan and Sylvania BMW dealer principle Anthony Rodriquez.

In a small ceremony at the brand new Sylvania BMW showroom, five lucky people walked away with great prizes thanks to the fantastic donations listed below.
