Byron Bay Football Club has 600 registered players and is raising funds to build a new clubhouse.
The club was founded with a team in 1963 and now has almost 40 players each week during the season.
The BBFC has secured $650,000 in government grants and more than $140,000 from seven passionate local chapters through its Starting 11 Foundation Member program (four spots still available).
But the club still needs to raise around $400,000 in additional funding, so it’s appealing for community support through its Ultimate Byron Experience Community Clubhouse Raffle.
“Football is at the heart of our community, and with over 600 playing members at Byron Bay FC, when you include the families and friends of the players, our club is involved in over 2,500 local lives,” said Clint Bown, BBFC Community Partnerships Manager.
“The raffle offers over $20,000 in prizes donated by local clothing brands, restaurants, cafes and hotels. Other great prizes include a signed LP even darker by the boys of Parkway Drive and a signed THOR hammer donated by Chris Hemsworth,” he said.
The draw will take place this Sunday, October 16 at 5:30 p.m.
Tickets available on the BBCC website: wwwbyronbayfc.com.au.
“Our raffle is in its final week – and we encourage everyone to get a ticket. The more we sell, the closer we are to realizing our dream,” Brown said.
