Big night to help centre continue
MORE than 100 items including wood loads, vouchers and a rechargeable lawnmower will be up for grabs on June 16 when the Manjimup Visitor Centre hosts its annual fundraising dinner and auction.
The fundraiser will follow the usual format including a smorgasbord dinner at the Manjimup Hotel followed by an auction to raise money for the not-for-profit centre.
Centre president Kathy Savage said businesses in the region were always supportive towards the auction.
“This is our one major fundraising event for the year and businesses around town are always very generous,” she said.
“It’s usually a fantastic and enjoyable night.
“The Manjimup Hotel put on a smorgasbord dinner and dessert, then we have a very entertaining auction run by our auctioneer Terry Reeve.”
Auction items on the night include a battery-powered, rechargeable lawnmower, which was donated by Manjimup Motorcycles and Small Engines and retails at $649.
The fundraising dinner will be held on Saturday, June 16, at 6.30pm for a 7pm start.
Tickets are $35 and available at the Manjimup Visitor Centre.
