The Canberra Raiders, in conjunction with 50/50 Charity Raffle have raised over $4,000 as part of our 50/50 Charity Raffle game at the Storm v Raiders match at Suncorp Stadium last Friday night.
50% of these funds went to the winning ticket holder and the remaining amount to the selected charity.
The charity beneficiary identified was YFS, selected by the Logan City Rec Club who is part of the wider Raiders Group network of licensed clubs. It was an obvious choice as YFS and the Logan City Rec Club already have an established relationship in the community with mutual benefit.
YFS is a not-for-profit organisation that backs vulnerable people in the Logan and surrounding area to overcome adversity and to thrive.
Since 1983, they’ve been building people’s capacity to live independently and participate in our local community through a range of initiatives and services.
These include social enterprises that build employment prospects, programs that help homeless people get into long-term housing and initiatives to reduce the prevalence of domestic and family violence.
The money raised from the 50/50 Charity Raffle will go towards their Men4Respect program where young men support other young men to learn about equality, respectful relationships, consent and healthy masculinity.
The Canberra Raiders would like to express a huge thank you to all partners for getting this one across the line, a win-win for all.
