“I Love Canberra” raffle – over $2000 worth of prizes!

May 16, 2015

Any fan of In The Taratory knows that I’m passionate about everything Canberra – particularly our fantastic local businesses doing great things with quality ingredients.

To raise funds for our campaign so we can spread the word about me as far as possible, I wanted to do something a bit special where I could continue to show off Canberra. The result is the “I LOVE CANBERRA” raffle. We have over $2000 worth of prizes, with every prize generously donated by a Canberra region business.

You can get your tickets here.
