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.

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.
