Ev­ery­thing must go at Ro­tary auc­tion

Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

KITCHEN wares, elec­tri­cal goods, safes, art­works, fur­ni­ture and cata­ma­rans are just some of the items that will be up for auc­tion this Satur­day.

All items were do­nated to the Ro­tary Club of Air­lie Beach in May by the new own­ers of Lin­de­man Is­land, White­horse Hold­ings Lim­ited, who were left with enough fur­ni­ture to fill 250 rooms fol­low­ing their pur­chase of Club Med Re­sort last year.

Ro­tary Lin­de­man Is­land project co-or­di­na­tor Tim Ar­land said the event would be an un­re­served auc­tion and ev­ery­one would get a bar­gain.

“There is an in­fi­nite va­ri­ety of stuff and we have also re­ceived do­na­tions from Boathaven Spa Re­sort so we just hope we can fit ev­ery­one in,” he said. Two hun­dred auc­tion pad­dles will be avail­able with PRD Na­tion­wide Whit­sun­day auc­tion­eers Christie Leet and Brad Sobott vol­un­teer­ing their time to run the event.

Mr Ar­land said the aim of the auc­tion was to raise money so the Ro­tary club could con­tinue to give back to the re­gion and to fi­nance new com­mu­nity based projects.

Ro­tary has pre­vi­ously do­nated archery equip­ment to the Whit­sun­day PCYC, 10 tonnes of linen to flood vic­tims in Bund­aberg, fur­ni­ture for 80 rooms at Camp Kanga and as­sisted in re­fur­bish­ing prop­er­ties for the Whit­sun­day Cri­sis and Coun­selling Ser­vice.

View­ing will start at 8am on Satur­day, be­fore the auc­tion takes place at 9am.

Mr Ar­land thanked Au­to­pro Can­non­vale and the build­ing owner Bruce Fin­lay for their sup­port.

BIG BAR­GAINS: Co-or­di­na­tor of Ro­tary Lin­de­man Is­land project, Tim Ar­land, and past pres­i­dent John Har­ris show­cas­ing some of the items that will be up for auc­tion this Satur­day.
