Over the Xmas period ,  NTRC was  approached by Michelle Ault the mother of Miss Trinity Dawson , a national winner in the Royal International Miss Pageant Scholarship Program – Indigenous Pre-Teen (age group 11-13 years) and by Rob Meyer , a fellow Rotarian from Umina Beach Rotary and grandfather  of Ashley  Pernecker , 14 yrs.,  and an accomplished athlete having recently  qualified for the 2019 Australian Junior Track & Field Championships -400m, 800m, 1500m and 3000m.  Both families were seeking support from NLTR in raising funds to allow these accomplished teens to compete at internationally events to be held later this year in Canada & USA.

Both families were directed to myself and I explained how our Community Raffle was conducted and provided Application forms for their consideration. Trinity’s response has been nothing short of amazing. Within her first week following registration as a 2019 participant, Trinity sold & returned 200 Tickets further advising  she has also received pledges for at least another 600 tickets and is now awaiting receipt of funds .
