Toyota Australia helps raise more than half a million dollars for grassroots cricket clubs across Australia
June 13, 2019
The Toyota Good for Cricket Raffle has wrapped up after another successful year, with $560,110 raised by the 388 grassroots cricket clubs who registered to participate.
Toyota Australia has also announced the winner of the raffle prizes – which includes the first prize Toyota Kluger AWD Grande 3.5-litre Petrol Auto Wagon valued at up to $65,109.73.
Every State and Territory was represented in the raffle, with the biggest individual ticket selling effort by the Midland Guildford Cricket Club in WA, who sold over 1,500 tickets, raising more than $7,500 to support their club for years to come.
Vice President Sales & Marketing Sean Hanley said Toyota Australia was proud to support community clubs and local legends through the Good for Cricket Program.
“On behalf of Toyota Australia, I’d like to congratulate all of our winners – the winners of our raffle, and the winners at 388 cricket clubs all around Australia who will benefit from the over half a million dollars raised from ticket sales this year.
“These clubs put in a great effort selling tickets to those in their local community, and with Toyota covering all the administration and prizing for the raffle, they were able to pocket 100% of every dollar raised,” he said.
The keys to the first prize Toyota Kluger AWD Grande 3.5-litre Petrol Auto Wagon were recently handed over to lucky winner Richard Holloway at Toowoomba Toyota in Queensland.
In addition to the Toyota Kluger first prize, other prizes provided by Toyota for the Good for Cricket Raffle add up to a total prize pool of $150,000 – including a Toyota Camry Hybrid SL, a coaching clinic or private dinner with an Australian Cricket Legend and signed Australian cricket merchandise.
All winners have been contacted directly by Toyota Australia.
Toyota Australia has a long history of supporting local community clubs in Australia and has raised over $2.9 million since the Good for Cricket Raffle started in 2012.
