Ham­mer falls

Kalgoorlie Miner - - SOCIALS -

With their bar­gain hunt­ing eyes on the prowl and their bid­ding arms ready and wait­ing, more than 100 peo­ple gath­ered to launch the 30th an­nual Boul­der Ro­tary Ra­dioWest Auc­tion last week.

Dur­ing the Mur­phy Boy­den Cock­tail Party at the Tower Ho­tel last Fri­day, lucky Gold­field­ers had first pick at a se­lec­tion of this year’s 250 do­nated items, be­fore they hit the auc­tion web­site.

Auc­tion­eer Steve Mills was busy selling ev­ery­thing from cro­chet blan­kets and ducks, to more high-priced items such as jew­ellery and football mem­o­ra­bilia, through­out the evening.

A to­tal of $14,700 was raised on the night, which got the auc­tion off to a great start to reach its $50,000 goal through­out the week-long fundraiser.

The auc­tion is run­ning online at www.ra­dioauc­tion.net.au un­til 4pm to­mor­row.
