Win a Phillip Island café for $15

Phillip Island café owners Laura and Matt McNamara have put Island Whole Foods up for raffle so they can travel Australia and help one lucky winner own a café for just a $15 investment. “A close friend of ours had heard of a resort in Panama being raffled off and thought it could be done with our business,” Laura says. “It caught me by surprise because I’d never really heard of it before but then I started to understand how we could possibly change someone’s life while also moving onto the next chapter of ours.” To be in the running to win the debt-free business, complete with $10,000 in cash, $4000 stock and all of the café’s equipment, customers must buy a $15 Raw Golden Chocolate bar either at Island Whole Foods or on its website.
