The 24th Christmas Trailer raffle is now on at the Elizabeth City Shopping Centre. We’ll be selling tickets in the shopping centre until December 18, 2016 with the raffle being drawn on Dec 19, 2016. All money raised is used for community projects. Please drop by to support our work in the community by buying tickets at $2 each.
The first trailer raffle was run midyear 1992 when rotarians had the idea to use funds from the community. Observations from similar raffles made it clear that the most attractive and unique prize for high ticket sales would be a trailer filled with new household and gardening goods. Tickets were priced at $2 (same price today).

“Helping grow small business in Northern Adelaide”
Guest Speaker : The Hon. Kyam Maher, MLC
