As part of the national Woolworths Fresh Food Kids Hospital Appeal, the supermarket chain is running a raffle to raise funds for the Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation.
Queenslanders are being encouraged to purchase raffle tickets at $2 each and go in the draw for the chance to win a year’s worth of free groceries. With a total prize pool of $70,000, seven Woolworths Essential Cards to the value of $10,000 each are available to be won.
In excess of $50 million dollars has been raised through the appeal nationally, with 100 per cent of funds being donated to hospitals across the nation to purchase vital medical equipment and fund research and facilities especially for children.
The 2009 Woolworths Fresh Food Kids Hospital Appeal runs alongside the Fresh Food Kids initiative, championing healthy eating habits of children via the promotion of fresh fruit and vegetables and regular exercise.
“Woolworths and Safeway have been a strong supporter of children’s hospitals and wards around Australia for many years and has raised millions of dollars,” said Woolworths director of supermarkets, Greg Foran.
“In 2009 we look forward to greater success for the Hospital Appeal and the chance to help those Australian children who need the best of medical care.”
The raffle runs until Sunday 18 October and the draw will take place on Wednesday 28 October.
