Be Forward Wanderers’ Annual Awards Committee is targeting K10 million from their gala set for Comesa Hall in Blantyre on Saturday.
The committee’s member Andrew Mwadala said the committee hopes to raise the amount from several activities such as tickets and merchandise sales.
“We are a well-followed club and with the recent success, we hope that our mission will draw a lot of support. We know that some members have pledged to buy tickets at a relatively higher price. There are some corporate stakeholders that are also planning to contribute towards the event, so we are assured that things will work,” he said.
Mwadala also said that supporters will have to buy a ticket at K1,000 to vote for the player of their choice and enter into a raffle draw.
Wanderers intend to reward outstanding players after an impressive season when they won the Fisd Challenge Cup and Carlsberg Cup.
The Lali Lubani Road side also lifted the Luso TV Bus Ipite bonanza.
Mwadala said supporters wishing to grace the occasion will pay an entry fee.
“We need to remind supporters that once they buy a ticket, they immediately vote for their player of the season. At the same time, they qualify for a raffle draw where winners will receive various items, including bicycles and cement,” he said.
Meanwhile, the committee’s Chairperson, Robert Mbeza, said every player will be given a token of appreciation at the gala.
“One thing that comes out clear is that every player that was registered and was on a contract with Wanderers will be rewarded. Then we will have a section where players with numerous votes in different positions will also be recognised. In the meantime, we will not disclose the amount involved,” he said.
