GCOS acquires Hero Honda motorcycle for fundraiser raffle
The Guyana Committee of Services (GCOS), which has a mandate to support sportsmen and sportswomen besides supporting the performing arts, has acquired the last outstanding prize for its annual fund-raising raffle, the proceeds of which go towards fulfilling the GCOS mandate.
The grand draw for the raffle will be on August 31st, one week after conclusion of the GCOS annual sports summer camp.
In a correspondence sent to the media last week, GCOS committee member Leslie Black shared that the last piece of the puzzle has been inserted with acquisition of the second-place prize for the raffle.
The first prize of the raffle is $1 million. Second prize is a Hero Honda 150cc motor cycle that the GCOS purchased last week. Third prize is a refrigerator. Fourth prize is a 32-inch television, and 5th prize is a microwave. A raffle ticket costs just $500.
Proceeds from the raffle will help facilitate the GCOS third annual athletics summer camp currently underway simultaneously in Berbice, Bartica and Linden.
The GCOS is facilitating the respective coaches at the training camps, in addition to providing meals and gear so budding athletes would be able to train without hassle, and be engaged in meaningful activities during the July-August vacation.
The camps will run until August 23rd, and to conclude the event, the GCOS will run off its highly anticipated Summer Camp 5K Run, which will be contested in categories from the under-10 to seniors.
That activity is scheduled for the National Park on Sunday, August 25th.
