Community raffle a monster success

David Lee December 6, 2017

THE Audi Centre Shepparton Community Raffle was drawn recently, with the winner of the Audi A1 Sportback car, Strathmerton’s Glenn Kellyn initially convinced he was being pranked.

With an incredible $38,500 raised, the success of the inaugural Audi Centre Shepparton Community Raffle will see many local community groups benefit in programs and projects delivered by the raffle partners The Community Fund Goulburn Valley, Connect GV, Shepparton Football Netball Club, Shepparton Rotary Club and Shepparton Foodshare.

Completely overwhelmed by his win, Glenn said, “I thought Jason from Audi Centre Shepparton sounded just like someone I knew. I never win anything, so I was sure it was a joke at first.”

This sentiment was a common theme with second prize winner, Carol Neave from Tatura also in disbelief.

“I don’t think I have ever won anything in a raffle. I really need a new fridge, so I am absolutely thrilled,” Carol said.
