Regal cricket teams fundraising raffle drawn
Regal Masters and Regal All-Stars are preparing for battle in the Florida Cup from April 12-14 and have completed a major fund-raising event to help make their trip to the USA a little easier.
On Sunday March 31 at the GNIC Sports Club ground, Woolford Avenue, Georgetown, 10 tickets from the mega raffle were drawn as was scheduled. The raffle was launched in January with tickets going at G$500 each with 10 fabulous prizes up for grabs, including the top prize of a double-door refrigerator.
The draw was conducted by Cricket Commentator, John Ramsingh, in the presence of players from Regal Masters, Wellman Masters, Fisherman Masters and President’s XI Masters, as well as softball cricket fans.
Some braved the hot sun and had their tickets anticipating their numbers being pulled from the many duplicate ticket stubs. Despite not getting their expected rewards some felt pleased to support the defending Florida Cup champions in their bid to bring back glory.
The touring party is expected to number about 40 persons, including players in the All Star and Masters categories as well as support staff. The monies raised will be used for airfare to and from Florida and transportation, accommodation and food while on tour.
This year, 28 teams will be in action across the All-Stars, Masters Over-40 years old and Legends Over-50 years old categories. Regal All Stars and Regal Masters won their respective titles when the tournament was last held there in 2017.
The following tickets were drawn for the respective prizes;
Double-Door Refrigerator – 2355
40” Smart Television Set – 759
3000 Watts Generator Set – 3624
Four-burner Gas Stove – 419
Multispeed Blender – 483
Consolation Prizes: 2745, 1839, 1815, 1677, 3827.
Persons with the winning numbers are asked to call 610-7902 to make arrangements to claim prizes.
