Dear Fellow Rotarians,
You must have learnt about our “Light Up Rotary Great Gondola Grab Charity Raffle Draw” from TDM news yesterday or from the newspapers today as we held our press conference announcing the above. You might also learnt through the Facebook or our Club’s website.
Thanks to Sands China’s full support, we are going to raise fund to support children with special needs in the Concordia School for Special Children, Macau Autism Association, Macau Down Syndrome Association as well as our Guangxi Project for Education and Poverty Alleviation. This charity event will have 10,000 charitable raffle tickets on sale to the public starting today. Each ticket sells at MOP50 with a special promotional offer of MOP100 for 3 tickets. All ticket sales proceeds after deduction of prize money will be for the above charity purposes.
The raffle draw has a very unique way of drawing the winners, first in Macau!  On 7th December, 2014 (Sunday) at 7pm, the Venetian Outdoor Lagoon will be lit up by 10,000 miniature lit-up gondolas to welcome this year’s Rotary “Light Up Rotary” humanitarian service theme. Each miniature gondola affixed with a raffle draw ticket number will be drawn for 43 winners.  1st Prize (one winner) wins MOP38,888; 2nd Prize (one winner) wins MOP28,888; 3rd Prize (one winner) wins MOP18,888 plus 40 consolation prizes worth over MOP30,000.  Total prize value is over MOP110,000.
Thanks to our Ticketing Partner – Kong Seng Ticketing Service, tickets are sold at their 5 ticketing offices in Macau and one in HK and also thanks to our Media Partner – Macau Daily Times, who will provide us with free advertising page.
So Fellow Rotarians, what we need from you now is to promote our event and help sell these 10,000 tickets. Please help promote it to your families, colleagues and friends.  Please find attached our poster, photo of the gondola, press release in Chinese and English which can help you to promote. Please make use of your social media, your Facebook, Whatsapp, Wechat etc…….
Please let Synthia, Perry or me know the no. of tickets you need and we can arrange them for you.
And of course, please reserve 7th December, our Rotary Day to be present at the Venetian Lagoon for the Event ceremony. We will let you know more details as it comes closer.
“Real happiness is helping others” please “Lend your Hand”
Yours in Rotary,
