Auction action for priceless pendant
WIRRPANDA Foundation grants manager Lindal Rohde showed her loyalty to the organisation when she insisted the $12,240 pendant she won at last week’s 10th Anniversary Fundraising Dinner be auctioned.
But in a twist that left guests speechless, Jeff and Sue Leech-Hines handed the 18ct yellow and white gold pendant featuring a 10.30ct natural Australian opal and diamonds back to Lindal after buying it at auction for $7500.
Made by Rohan and Toni Milne with a Coober Pedy Opal donated by Tony and Julie Elwood, the prize capped off a successful
Ashlea Walley with the pendant.
