Deniliquin RSL staff Deborah Holloway and Georgina Connell with some of the prizes from the toy raffle.
Kids, get down to the Deniliquin RSL Club on Saturday to win toys, meet Santa and shop at the markets.
The RSL is putting on a family fun day, which includes a toy raffle worth $2,500.
Tickets are $1 on the day, with the raffle drawn at 2pm.
Each child whose number is drawn will get to choose a toy, according to RSL entertainment and promotions co-ordinator Georgina Connell.
‘‘[We] keep going until all the toys are gone,’’ she said.
There are more than 30 prizes, including Lego, a doll pram, slip’n’slide, Spiderman figure, bike, Nerf gun and more.
And if that’s not exciting enough, Santa will be putting in an appearance before the raffle.
The jolly man in red is due to arrive at 1.30pm.
Prior to that, the market stalls will be open from 10am.
The event will take place in back of the RSL’s renovated sports lounge, near the new children’s area.
The RSL will be holding a Christmas raffle for the adults next week, on December 15, with more than $5,000 worth of prizes to give away. Tickets will be available at the club from 5.30pm that night, with the raffle drawn at 7.30pm.
Several people have already enjoyed success in RSL competitions recently, with the club giving away $13,000 in the past two weeks. Both of the RSL’s members’ draw jackpots went off, with one member pocketing $7,100 on November 21 and another $6,900 on Friday last week.
