Kia ora

On 5th and 6th Dec – myself and many other helpers will be running a BBQ fundraiser for the Waiheke Sea Scouts of which I am a Leader, outside Waiheke’s Countdown supermarket.

The Waiheke Sea Scouts is part of NZ SCOUTS and currently has over 75 Waiheke kids between the ages of 5 -15 who are all enrolled in learning about everything from camping to the environment to sailing to being awesome adventurers!

We are fundraising for various camps and equipment needed for the group.  The small boats that we use to teach kids to sail in are typically the Topaz Taz – lightweight and nimble – but these alone cost 3 ~ 4,000 or more each.  We are also in need of Kayaks and equipment such as life vests and wetsuits.

Promote your business and do good!

We expect to engage with between 3 ~ 6,000 people who will come into contact with the stall over the two days.  We also plan to do some marketing in the local newspapers and online via Facebook and the WSS website – so there will be a combined exposure to around 10 ~ 20,000 people or more during the week leading and following the event.

Please donate something for our raffle so that we can make sure you get plenty of exposure including media mention, website link and name space on the promotion materials – not to mention the feel good factor  🙂

We will be running a sausage sizzle and selling raffle tickets and making a big ‘HOO HA’ – so come and say hi!!

The raffle will be drawn in accordance with the NZ legislation and by either a member of the Waiheke NZ Police, or a JP.  Anyone winning the alcohol prize must be 18yrs or older.

Thank you for your consideration and do let me know if you can donate something 🙂 (contact details below)

  • The raffle is being run by Waiheke Sea Scouts – part of SCOUTSNZ and the primary organizer is Sol Harris (Leader)
  • The raffle will be drawn in accordance with the NZ legislation
  • The raffle draw will take place within one week of the 6th Dec in a public place at the date and time of our choosing
  • The draw will be made by either a member of the Waiheke NZ Police, or a JP
  • Entry is by way of purchasing a numbered raffle ticket (one or more)
  • To be valid, the purchaser must provide payment, full name, phone and email
  • Each valid numbered ticket will then be entered automatically in to a large receptacle (e.g. a big box)
  • For each prize, a separate draw will take place (prize draw) – the receptacle will be shaken and a ticket randomly, blindly selected
  • For each prize draw, only one ticket will be drawn and that ticket shall be the winning ticket for that prize
  • Winning tickets will then be removed and not eligible for subsequent draws
  • Any winning ticket that is not valid, or in the event of any dispute, the prize will be re-drawn
  • Anyone winning an age restricted prize (e.g. alcohol) must be 18yrs or older or be willing to give the prize to a family member who meets the age restriction
  • Every reasonable effort will be made to contact winners, however, if after reasonable attempts have been unsuccessful, or if a prize has not been collected with 7 days of notification, Waiheke Sea Scouts shall reserve the right to redraw a prize, sell or dispose of the prize however we see fit.
