Every year from February to April, we hold a raffle to raise the funds required to operate the GNCA, so we can interact with local residents to discuss issues of concern, raise the profile of the GNCA and lobby the Government.

The theme for 2019 was Eat, Drink and be Healthy in Griffith.  We received outstanding support from Griffith businesses and there were 21 prizes to be won.  Some of the funds raised will be allocated to maintain our local parklands.  The prizes were drawn at the Griffith Shops on 20 April (see below).

From left to right, GNCA President Leo Dobes, Tina Srikhumwong owner of Pro Thais and Vice- President Venessa Tripp at the drawing of the prizes.

It is with great enthusiasm that we announce the winners of the 2019 GNCA raffle.  Our annual raffle would not have been possible without the participation of our generous sponsors from our local Griffith shops.  GNCA wishes to encourage our members and advocates to support our Barker Street colleagues.
