Good for Footy - Great for Pakenham FC!

Wednesday, August 26, 2015

Like hundreds of suburban clubs around Australia, Pakenham Football Club is always on the lookout for ways to raise money, and thanks to the Toyota Good for Footy Raffle, the club is now one step closer to reaching their annual fundraising goals. 

Toyota invited Pakenham to the MCG to sell raffle tickets outside a blockbuster AFL game this season where they raised a whopping $1,000. Proud club member Tracy McDermott says the much-needed cash would be put to good use. 

“Our club has over 350 juniors and we need everything from new footballs and training gear to an upgrade of our old clubhouse. To raise $1000 in a day really is a big win for us.” 

Launched nationally in 2015, the Toyota Good for Footy Raffle makes it easy for grassroots clubs to raise money and score 100% of the profits. So far this year, 249 clubs around Australia have registered for the raffle and counting. 

“For clubs like ours, fundraising can be an uphill battle. Toyota made it simple by providing the tickets and some amazing prizes. We’ll be using the cash to provide better equipment to help our young players develop. It’s fantastic for everyone!”

The Toyota Good for Footy Raffle is all about helping AFL football from the grassroots up. To find out more or get involved, visit
