The raffle prizes include a signed bat from NSW Speedblitz Blues stars Michael Clarke, Shane Watson, Phillip Hughes, Brad Haddin, Usman Khawaja and many more.
Local businesses have also been approached to lend a hand to get the children to the SCG.
‘‘(Project officer) Hans de Koning has been fantastic with the support given through the whole process,’’ Craig said.
