At each Eels home game at ANZ Stadium in 2018, the 50-50 Charity Raffle will raise money for the Parramatta Eels Charity Partner for that selected game.
The total proceeds of all 50-50 tickets sold at each game go into a prize pool, with 50% of the prize pool going to the lucky winner of the random draw and 50% being donated to the nominated Charity Partner (-10% administration fee from 50-50).
In Round four, when the Parramatta Eels defeated the Cronulla Sharks at ANZ Stadium on Saturday April 6, the Club worked alongside the Blue & Gold Charity Partner The Lisa Harnum Foundation to assist with the ongoing work they do within the community.
The Lisa Harnum Foundation (LHF) was established in 2014 in response to the lack of specialist domestic violence services in the Hills district. The myth that domestic violence “just doesn’t happen in the Hills” has diminished over time as the community came to the realisation that different forms of abuse were well hidden. LHF offers a range of services which include, information, support, casework, counselling, education, group work, transitional housing and the Safe Room.
The Lisa Harnum Foundation supports and empowers families affected by domestic violence while striving to prevent and end the cycle of abuse through education and social change. We aim to be part of the community in which domestic violence is eradicated for everyone by everyone.
Thanks to the generous support from the Members and fans in attendance at the Round four game, the total prize pool reached $5,460.
The Lisa Harnum Foundation received $2,457 in funds thanks to the generous support.
Shanna Foster was the lucky recipient of the random draw, walking away with $2,730. Shanna plans to go on a trip to Croatia with her winnings!
In the upcoming round six clash against the West Tigers at Bankwest Stadium on Monday April 22 the 50-50 Charity Raffle will be raising funds for Legacy.
