“I thought it was a prank when I got the call. I’m not used to winning prizes. I am thrilled.” So said a jubilant Lorna Falkson, who received a call at 12:35 on Sunday, 13 May telling her that she had won the Grand Sports Raffle.

The raffle is a project of the non-profit organisation Soul Workout, headed by Rav Ilan Herrmann. It had numerous charities on board, including Choc; Afrika Tikkun; FeedSA; and Chaiyainu, which raised funds for their organisations.

The incredible prize is two tickets and a week at the FIFA World Cup in Moscow this June.

The draw was held at Norwood Mall on Sunday, 13 May 13. Among the fanfare and excitement, there were performances by the Russian School of Ballet; Hip Hop dance and The Alexander Harmonius Melodies group.

This is the second Grand Sports Raffle. Last year’s winners went to Chelsea FC to watch a Premier League derby with Arsenal, and took a trip to the Australian Open tennis tournament.

“We have big plans in the pipeline for Grand Sports Raffle 3, and are looking forward to something really spectacular,” said an enthusiastic Ilan, who would not divulge what the grand prize will be. “It’s SA’s biggest sports raffle, and all for a good cause as it offers charities an opportunity to raise funds through a dynamic and sporty medium.”
