Club 2000 Winner! - September 2019
Great excitement prevailed on the Stepping Stone Hospice premises on Thursday October 10 when the first draw (September draw) of their Club 2000 took place under the watchful eyes of auditor, Andre van Zyl and two representatives from the National Lotteries Commission.
The lucky winner of the 1st prize of a whopping R20 000 is Derus Berg from Alberton (Ticket number 1068).
Stepping Stone Hospice & Care Services is the only non-profit, community-based organization in greater Alberton, Bassonia, Glenvista, Kathehong, Thokoza and Vosloorus, where the sole mission is to offer comprehensive palliative care services, with an in-home programme as well as an in-patient facility.
“As a fundraising team at Stepping Stone Hospice, we are on a continuous quest to raise funds to ensure that our doors remain open so that our clinical team can continue providing the much-needed care for those facing the devastating effects of a life-limiting illness,” says Marietjie Tame, marketing and fundraising manager at the hospice.
“To that end we are committed to thinking out of the box as we are mindful of the fact that even our most loyal and regular supporters are finding it difficult to make ends meet in a difficult economic climate.
“Our Club 2000 fundraising programme therefore is an initiative where you, in donating to hospice, now also stand a chance to get something back – in participating in the programme, you can win some wonderful cash prizes on a monthly basis, ranging from R20 000 as a first prize to R500 as a last prize. “
“It’s actually a very simple, yet exciting programme. Any member of the public can purchase a R50 ticket per month for 12 months, which then gives him or her a lucky number into the monthly draws. There are seven cash prizes, monthly, up for grabs, a 1st prize of R20 000, 2nd prize of R2000, 3rd prize of R1000 and 4 prizes of R500 each,” explains Marietjie.
Delighted with his first prize: Derus Berg, winner of the R20 000 in the Stepping Stone Hospice Club 2000 programme.
