SpringFest Ballarat unveils new online raffle

SpringFest Ballarat has been reimagined in the face of COVID-19 restrictions and will be presented as an $18,000 online raffle this year.

Up for grabs in the 2020 Ultimate SpringFest Online Raffle will be 100 prize packs donated by stallholders and sponsors.

In previous years, more than 550 market stalls have lined the Lake Wendouree foreshore for the popular SpringFest Ballarat Market Sunday.

"We wanted to continue to showcase our stallholders, stay connected with the community and put a pep in our step over the usual SpringFest time period, which resulted in the move to adapt and launch the 2020 Ultimate SpringFest Online Raffle," a Rotary Club of Ballarat spokesperson said.

The raffle will go live on 1 October and will be drawn on 29 November.

All funds raised will be donated to the Ballarat Chinese Dragon Boat Club, Bungaree Primary School, Miners Rest Primary School and Kindergarten, Mount Egerton Primary School, Phoenix P-12 Community College, and the Rotary Club of Ballarat's community and international projects.
