Northern NSW : Summer 2011
Helicopter Cash Housie was established in 1989 and it continues to be one of the most successful and popular forms of fundraising for the Service. During the past 22 years, Housie has raised over $11 million with an estimated 2,000 people attending sessions every week. Currently there are 19 weekly sessions to choose from which are conducted by our experienced and enthusiastic team in a variety of Registered Clubs. Ever y year we conduct over 25 Big Bucks Bingo sessions with the offer of 4 @ $500 cash Jackpots as well as bigger cash prizes for all other games. This year saw the introduction of an electronic form of playing Housie which many players enjoy as they can play more games with the press of a button. However, the traditional form of playing printed books will never go out of fashion as it still provides the best brain stimulation! Many of our players travel long distances to attend Housie and play at more than one of our sessions every week. Our Housie staff appreciates everyone’s support and friendship during the year which makes their job all the more enjoyable. We cannot thank the Clubs enough for their continued generous support of the Service’s Housie sessions. Clubs provide a vital social link for the community and we should all support them in return.
