A successful concert and a lucky winner
The successful event raised a total of $53,227 to help The Breakfast Club provide free full meals to Redcliffe community.
Aside from the concert, sponsored prizes and gifts were raffled off, such as the Harley-Davidson bike from the Morgan and Wacker, the first dealer of Harley-Davidson. Sherree Bell from Margate, who just purchased her $350 raffle book on concert night, went home as the proud owner of the big bike. A total fund of $27,290 was raised during the raffle alone.
If the raffle winners were lucky, so was the “Sling” band. This young band won a recording package worth $600 from the Classic Rock Central and Rockin’ 4 the Homeless.
