The Guyana Cricket Board announces the launching of its grand fund raising 75th Anniversary Raffle in aid of youth and female cricket development. The Guyana Cricket Board was officially formed in 1943 and next year, 2018, it will be celebrating what is usually referred to as the Diamond Anniversary.
Approval for the raffle has already been received from the relevant authorities and tickets would go on sale from next weekend. Raffle tickets have been priced reasonably at just $200 per ticket in books of 25 for an even $5,000. The final drawing is set for April 7th 2018.
The controllers for the raffle are: Anand Kalladeen, Raj Singh & Anand Sanasie. There would be 8 very attractive prizes to be raffled out at its final drawing. The first and second prizes take care of your transportation woes, a motor car would be the first prize with a motorcycle as the second prize. The 3rd prize is a return airfare to New York. There is a condition attached to this prize that it does not include a visa but it is anticipated that the ticket holder can either obtain a visa on his/her own or the GCB and the sponsor may be flexible to agree to a transfer of the ticket to a relative or friend of the ticket holder. The fourth prize is a 60″ Television set. The fifth prize is a beautiful gold necklace which is sponsored by popular jewellery establishment, Steve’s Jewellery. The sixth prize is an Acer laptop computer. The seventh prize is a return trip for 2 to Kaieteur Falls, with the eight prize being a day trip for 2 to one of our most exotic resorts, Arrow point. More information on the sponsors for the other prizes would be released in the forthcoming week.
Tickets would be on sale at the Providence National Stadium during the 3 ODIs, WI vs Pakistan, so be on the lookout look for ticket vendors as there would be a consolation drawing during the 3rd ODI on Tuesday, 11th April. There would be other consolation drawings in August during CPL and December. Tickets will be on sale afterwards to specified outlets around the country and from any executive member of the GCB.
