Lotterywest

Lotterywest (formerly the Lotteries Commission of Western Australia) was established in 1932 at the height of the economic depression of that era to offer state authorised Lottery products to raise money for hospitals and charitable organisations. Lotterywest, now operating under the Lotteries Commission Act (1990) continues to have responsibility for running the official State Lottery in Western Australia and for raising and distributing the funds for the beneficiaries in the way in which the Act sets out. As a Major Supporter, Lotterywest supports Celebrate WA’s community program including WA Day Festival celebrations held around the state and SOTA Music Festival. Lotterywest provided a special project grant to develop an Aboriginal Consultation Plan. This plan facilitated a conversation with representatives from the Aboriginal community of Western Australia to ascertain how they might participate meaningfully in WA Day celebrations.
