The Silver City Cup race club is now selling tickets for their raffle with the main prize including a Family Weber Q.

Club vice-president and entertainment co-ordinator, Jane Weekes, said tickets were available in many shops around town.

The first prize includes a Family Weber Q, Gazebo, Outdoor Heater and Cool Bar. The second prize includes a Baby Weber Q and Cool Bar.

Tickets cost $2 each or three for $5.

“We would really like to thank Kevin Taylor from Shannon Electrics for their donations and continuous support and Big W for their donations and support,” MS Weekes said.

“It would be hard to organise our race day without our generous sponsors.

“The tickets can be purchased around town or at the offices at 2 Talc Street.”

Ms Weekes said all the money raised will go towards helping the club prepare for the popular race meeting in October.

“The raffles always go well. The Weber Q is always popular.”

In August the club will also start selling tickets at the Westside Plaza.

The club has also started receiving merchandise for the race day, including stubby holders, pens, beer steins, wine glasses, polo shirts and hats.

Ms Weekes said preparations were underway for the meeting and that bookings for marquees and picnic sites could be made now.

“Ticket prices will remain the same as last year.”

Meanwhile, a committee meeting will be held on Thursday, June 2 at the Silver City Workingmen’s Club at 6pm.

“We are still looking for volunteers to help out,” Ms Weekes said.
