Messages from our past Winners
Natalie's Testimonial | 2016 France Raffle Prize
"My family and I attended the Brisbane French Festival in 2016. It was wonderful to see some many vendors at Le Festival. When we arrived a band was playing a French love song called "Natalie". After hearing this song, I felt lucky and bought 5 tickets in the raffle and I was lucky as I won the first prize of the raffle - a trip back to France. My husband and I decided to take our two daughters this time around for a trip of a lifetime.
The organisers of Le Festival were easy to deal with. I was lucky enough to work with Linda from Air France who was able to align my winning tickets to my children's tickets. But the real jewel in the crown was staying at Le Château de Cadillac. Richard and Shelley, the owners of the Chateau, were so lovely. We even got to sample the Chateau's award winning wines! Michael from Beyond Bordeaux was also a wealth of knowledge." Nathalie
Carol's Testimonial | 2015 Nouméa Raffle Prize
"I am writing to say a huge thank you for your assistance in organising our prize trip to Noumea. Both my husband and I took this trip in early December 2015 and had a wonderful experience. Our flight was great and the accommodation both in Noumea and at Escape Resort was most enjoyable. The scenery & crystal clear water were amazing and also the people we met and dealt with during our stay, were both friendly and very helpful. We will certainly be mentioning these places, as a holiday destination, to all our friends and family.Kind regards." Carol
Jacara's Testimonial | 2015 Sofitel Raffle Prize
"My fiancé Hugo and I had a wonderful day out at the Brisbane French Festival, we enjoyed the fashion show and indulged on many French delights from creme brûlée to macarons of every flavour! We were feeling lucky so we purchased some raffle tickets from the lovely ladies who approached us.My heart skipped a beat when they called to say I won - we were delighted to win a getaway package to the Sofitel in Brisbane and decided to use this for my birthday on January 1st.
The Sofitel is the epitome of French style and design! Our room had the most wonderful view overlooking ANZAC square and Brisbane CBD. The service was second to none at the Sofitel, in fact I even wrote to the General Manager saying how impressed I was! They went out of their way to make me feel special. My birthday dinner experience at Thyme² was magical, we were under the famous purple cherry blossom, it was so romantic! The French inspired cuisine (including decadent desserts) at Sofitel were a particular hit with my partner!
We will definitely be going to the Brisbane French Festival next year and we hope to get lucky again and perhaps win a trip to beautiful France! Merci beaucoup! " Jacara
