Over the next day or so, we will be contacting these winners with information about collecting their prizes.

Finally your support, and the generous support of the event partners resulted in $29,500 being raised for the Shoalhaven Education Fund. The Fund will invest this money and use the earnings to provide scholarships to students to attend vocational training, TAFE and University when they would otherwise not be able to do so. Your support of this event will make a lasting change to many, many people.

At this point, we would like to acknowledge Bruce McDonald and his team from Financial Dynamics. If you recall from our email on the 26th, their duck came 2nd (just pipped at the post) and won them a $500 bank account at Bendigo Bank, Nowra. After discussing it internally at their office, the staff decided to generously donate their prize back to SEF – which takes the total amount raised this year to $30,000.
