Patrons lured by wads of dollars offered at clubs and pubs

THE battle to get more customers through the door is proving a winner for Rocky folk.

Clubs and pubs across the city are offering serious cash to lure patrons.

At sporting clubs, all you need to do is sign up to be a member and be there at the time of a draw and if your number comes in you will be dollars ahead.

CQ Leagues Club general manager Damian Bolton said one of their members picked up $8000 a couple weeks back.

And they even gave away a $10,000 cruise.

With close to 2500 people walking through the club's doors every week, Damian said members had to be there to win.

"It's really nice to see our regulars and loyal members win these things," he said.

Southside United manager Berneice Reynolds said you had to be a member to win, but it was worth it.

"Members just love being in the draws," she said.

"You have those that love to have the raffles, they sit down, have a bite to eat and buy tickets."

And even those that don't walk away with their pockets lined are sure to have had a good time.
