Play for Purpose for your chance WIN $500k Gold Bullion!

Does the prospect of winning $500k of gold bullion appeal to you?

If so, then this could become a reality thanks to the Gold Coast SUNS Foundation’s exciting fundraising initiative, the Play For Purpose Charity Lottery.

Not only will one lucky person walk away with the grand prize, the money raised will assist in funding the club’s Community Programs and Talent Academies.

With 60% of ticket sales going directly to the Gold Coast SUNS Foundation and a one in 19 chance of winning a prize, Play For Purpose is the first charity lottery of its kind in Australia.

The SUNS are committed to helping the community by delivering programs that assist local indigenous and multicultural youth via sporting platforms, as well as in growing talent and assisting our male and female academy to strive for future success.


“Play For Purpose is a game-changer in this space,” said Play For Purpose Founder John Corry.

“We’re aiming to reform the Australian fundraising landscape by providing a win-win experience for supporters, they simply jump onto and buy a ticket to go into the draw to win $1 million worth of prizes.”

“Play For Purpose is a free platform for charities to use to fundraise, and we encourage all Australians to support it to raise more money for the causes they care about.”

The Play For Purpose draw closes on 25th September 2018 and will be drawn on 27th September 2018.
