Alumni raffle targeting 2016 National Championships
Australian Baseball Alumni was established with the fundamental purposes of promoting Australian baseball and providing a means for ongoing connection - and reconnection - between any and all persons who have had an involvement in the sport, at any level or capacity.
In its efforts to support the baseball community, the Alumni has coordinated several fundraising opportunities to assist players representing their country. The Alumni has been fortunate enough to have some excellent items donated for fundraising purposes and we are excited to extend the opportunity to state representative players to assist them in fundraising for the 2016 National Championships.
Players will have the opportunity to sell raffle tickets and keep half of the proceeds of the money they raise. The other half of the proceeds will go back to the Alumni and will be redirected into future baseball initiatives.
Tickets are priced at $2.00 each or 3 for $5.00. Selling will begin in coming weeks, at Australian Baseball League games, at club baseball and at other activities. Sellers should ensure that a name and a mobile number are recorded for each ticket sold.
Raffle prize winners will be drawn at the National Championships in Sydney on 18 January 2016.
Australian Baseball Alumni will deliver all prizes to prize winners shortly after the draw.
