YOUNGCARE PARTNERS WITH THE BRISBANE BRONCOS FOR FUNDRAISING INITIATIVE

5 March 2014

 

The Brisbane Broncos are set to raise $500,000 for local charities and Youngcare has been chosen as one of the five charities to benefit.


The '50-50 Charity Raffle' is run like a lottery where tickets will be sold to the public at all Broncos home games, with fifty per cent of sales going to a winning ticket holder and the remaining 50 per cent to charity.


This is the second year the initiative has been underway in Queensland and with almost a quarter of a million dollars raised last year, the 50-50 Foundation is looking to double the target this year,
according to 50-50 Foundation Co-Founder John Corry.
