It was a delighted and happy family who joined interim CEO Paul Ferguson and marketing team, Clare McAlaney and Samantha Pengler, to collect first prize in the most recent WA PCYC raffle.
Mr Guy Tan and his wife and son Jaylee (Jay) enthusiastically received the cheque, saying that it would go toward home expenses, along with donation a portion to their church and another charity. Photos were snapped to send home. “It’s such a large amount,” said Mr Tan, “of course we give some back (to the community).”
Head Office staff were particularly taken by the cuteness of Jay, who happily held the cheque high above his head. “It’s Daddy’s present!” he cheekily smiled, but was too shy to put on his brand new WA PCYC cap for the photo.
This is the 23rd raffle WA PCYC have run since 2010, generating over $4 million in total which has been invaluable in delivering life changing programs for youths throughout Western Australia.
Mr Ferguson said, “These funds help create programs that often intervene in the lives of young people who are at risk or in need, giving a hand up to help them redirect their focus so they can become valued members of the community.”
The 24th raffle will commence in August. If you have subscribed to WA PCYC raffles, you will receive communication shortly.
