Dolphin Discovery 300dpiA raffle fundraising is indeed one of the ideas that can capture any one’s interest especially if a holiday package is at stake. Everyone deserves a much needed R&R and what better way to get it than to win it in a raffle? The Gold Coast Raffle Fundraiser is one of the most sought after holiday packages as all family members will have the privilege to explore the picturesque attractions that Gold Coast has to offer. For someone who is in dire need to escape the pressures, distractions and demands of modern living, this is a perfect family holiday.

The tickets for the Gold Coast Raffle Fundraising can be purchased at $2 per ticket. One ticket gives you a chance to bring home the exciting prize that the whole family can enjoy. If you want kids to enjoy watching underwater creatures swim delightfully in clear blue waters, the Star Sea World Resort & Water Park will surely be a perfect base. You can also see the details of this holiday package on your raffle ticket. Since the prize for this raffle fundraising idea is considered out of the ordinary, the profit that you will make out of it will be up to 62%. There are also no limits on the number of tickets to purchase. The fundraiser won’t have to worry about service fees and transaction costs.

If you are interested in this fundraising idea, you will be entitled to get a complete package which includes raffle tickets. You have the option to personalize the color of your tickets including your own logo. The fundraising package also includes parent letters, promotional posters, airline and accommodation vouchers, incentive prizes and more.

Anyone who joins the raffle will be excited about the prizes up for grabs. The Gold Coast holiday package is intended for 2 adults and 2 children.
