CWA Conference Committee says Thank You

The local Committee organising the Country Women’s Association of NSW State Conference in Bega in May next year would like to say a BIG thank you to their local South Coast sponsors and donors. Their support means we can offer some impressive prizes for our Conference Raffle. Alison Jenkins, the Conference Committee Treasurer successfully applied for sponsorship from the Pambula & District Community Bank Branch of Bendigo Bank. They kindly gave $2,000 towards the CWA State Conference, which will be used for many things, such as printing Conference raffle tickets and posting those tickets to all CWA branches throughout NSW. It also means we can offer a first prize in the Raffle of $1,000 in cash. Another generous sponsor, Bega Betta Home Living, has donated a Red Kitchen-Aid Artisan Mixer, valued at $749, which we are offering as the second prize. Our CWA culinary expert, and Conference Committee Member, Nelleke Gorton says it is her mixer of choice when preparing her award-winning fruit cakes.

The third prize, donated by Georgies Fine Jewellery, is a Pandora bracelet with charms, valued at $444. Georgie, who provides bespoke jewellery through her stores in Batemans Bay, Narooma, Merimbula and Bega, loves giving back to the South Coast community by sponsoring local charities and events like the CWA Conference raffle. The fourth prize is a set of two suitcases – travel and hand luggage, valued at $424 and the fifth prize is a $200 Visa Card. The fourth and fifth prizes have been donated by the Far South Coast Group of CWA. With all these wonderful prizes where can you buy a ticket for the 2021 CWA State Conference Raffle?
