Car to be won in GCB’s 75th Anniversary Raffle


The Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) has announced the launching of its grand fund-raising 75th Anniversary Raffle in aid of youth and female cricket development. The GCB was officially formed in 1943 and next year, 2018, it will celebrate 75 years, which is usually referred to as the Diamond Anniversary.

Approval for the raffle has already been received from the relevant authorities and tickets would go on sale from next weekend. Raffle tickets have been priced very inexpensively at just $200 per ticket and very conveniently in books of 25 for an even $5,000. The final drawing is set for April 7, 2018.

The controllers for the raffle are: Anand Kalladeen, Raj Singh and Anand Sanasie. There would be eight very attractive prizes to be raffled out at its final drawing. The first and second prizes take care of your transportation woes, as an awesome motor car would be the first prize with a motorcycle as the second prize. The third prize is a return airfare to New York.

There is a condition attached to this prize that it does not include a visa, but it is anticipated that the ticket holder can either obtain a visa on his/her own or the GCB and the sponsor may be flexible to agree to a transfer of the ticket to a relative or friend of the ticket holder.

The fourth prize is a 60-inch Television set. The fifth prize is a beautiful gold necklace which is already sponsored by popular jewellery establishment, Steve’s Jewellery.  

The sixth prize is an Acer laptop computer. The seventh prize is a return trip for 2 to Kaieteur Falls with the eight prize being a day trip for 2 to one of our most exotic resorts, Arrow point resort. More information on the sponsors for the other prizes would be released in the forthcoming week.

“Surely, tickets would be on sale at the Providence National Stadium during the three ODIs, WI versus Pakistan, so be on the lookout look for our ticket vendors as there would be a consolation drawing during the third ODI on Tuesday, the 11th April,” the GCB said in a release on Saturday.

It added, “There would be other consolation drawings in August during CPL and December. Tickets will be on sale afterwards to specified outlets around the country and from any executive member of the GCB.”
