DON'T buy a raffle ticket if Sammy White is in the club.

Mrs White has now won two major raffles in two years at the Cabarita Beach Surf Life Saving Club after walking away with a brand new Dodge Caliber last weekend.

The Cabarita Beach woman admitted she wasn't too happy with her husband of eight months, Paul, for paying $100 for a place in the raffle. It was bought just an hour before the draw, to have a one-in-500 chance of picking up the prize.

“I woke up in the morning thinking, why did we spend $100 on a raffle ticket? But then I picked up my phone and thought oh my God! I couldn't believe it,” Mrs White said.

She drove the car away from the club on Friday afternoon and said it was surreal to have won another major raffle.

She had won a new tinnie at the same club almost a year to the day before her latest win.

“I would like to thank the surf club and all the members and volunteers.

“I am very grateful,” Mrs White said.

The sporty Dodge Caliber, from James Frizelles Auto Group in Tweed Heads, is a bit more Mrs White's style than the car she has been driving.

“Well, I have been driving a Land Cruiser around, so I think it is a bit more me,” she said.

Mrs White and her husband had been looking at buying a second-hand vehicle, but now they won't need to.

Cabarita Beach Surf Life Saving Club President Des Anderson said he was really glad a local won.

“It was the first major fundraiser of its type and it was to help construct a back deck which is going on the clubhouse,” Mr Anderson said.

“It was good to see a local win, especially a lovely young girl just starting out in married life; it should be a great help to her.

“I look forward to everyone buying a ticket next year, hopefully another local will win.”
