The Albany Surf Life Saving Club have nominated to sell 300 tickets to raise a total of $15,000. This is one of a number of fundraising activities the club delivers each season to support the operations and costs of club activities. This season, we had allocated the Get in the Game Sport & Rec Giveaway to our Nipper and Youth. The Woodside Nippers and Youth have been doing an awesome job selling tickets but we still have plenty of books to sell.
We are now calling for senior members to get on board this great opportunity for the club. We have 70+ books yet to sell and a missed opportunity to raise the desired funds for the club.

Congratulations to the Youth. Under 14 and 15 members are leading the pack with the most money raised to date. With only 2 weeks to go, which age group will raise the most funds and which individual family will do the hardest yards to raise the most funds?
