Lions Club of Lake Mulwala members drawing the Mother’s Day Raffle.

Lions Club raffle winners

The special Mother’s Day Raffle run by the Lions Club of Lake Mulwala was drawn at 12.30pm on Saturday, May 7.

First prize, a well-stocked laundry basket packed with a variety of appealing items, was won by Ross Watson of Yarrawonga. He and his wife Anne were doubly delighted as it was also their wedding anniversary. Lots to celebrate.

Second prize was a beautiful handbag which was won by Irene Mandelt from Mulwala. Irene said she had admired the attractive bag when she bought the ticket. She added that she never wins anything, so this prize was a real thrill.

The Lions Club of Lake Mulwala wishes to thank the community who supported the raffle so well which raised valuable funds for charities supported by Lions.

It is now almost 12 months since the club transitioned from Yarrawonga Lioness Club to being a full Lions Club and is continuing to contribute to many worthy causes and having fun while doing it.
