GCB receives motor-cycle for Anniversary raffle prize
As the Guyana Cricket Board prepares to officially launch its 75th anniversary raffle this week, officials have received the second place prize of motor-cycle from a popular city business.
On Tuesday, board officials received from Automobile Power Products an Eagle EG110-7 motor-cycle, which will be the second prize in the raffle, proceeds from which will go towards the development of female and youth cricket.
Marketing Manager of Automobile Power Products, Romel Richmond, said the company is delighted to partner with the board in celebrating such a major milestone. Tickets for the raffle, which has a first prize of a motor-car, cost $200 each and a booklet of 25 sheets costs $5,000.
The third prize is a return airfare to New York, which is being sponsored by a major airline. 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” 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, which is sponsored by SPR Enterprises located on Brickdam, Stabroek, Georgetown.
The seventh prize is a return trip for two to Kaieteur Falls, with the eighth prize being a day trip for two to one of Guyana’s most exotic resorts, Arrowpoint resort, which is sponsored Arrowpoint Tours, a member of the Roraima Group of Companies.
“Tickets would be on sale at the National Stadium during the three ODIs, West Indies versus Pakistan, so be on the lookout for our ticket vendors as there would be a consolation drawing during the third ODI on Tuesday, April 11. 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,” the cricket board said in a release.
The raffle will be drawn in 2018.
