Whitsunday Times - - ON THE WATER -

WHIT­SUN­DAY res­i­dents are in­vited to support the com­mu­nity’s ju­nior sailors at a fundrais­ing auc­tion this Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 24.

The auc­tion, which will be held at the Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club from 5.30pm, aims to raise money for 29'er sailors Bren­dan Hoff­man and Lach­lan McCon­nel, and Op­ti­mist sailors Ai­dan and Ty Gum­mow and Hamish Swain, to at­tend the up­com­ing Aus­tralian 29'er Na­tion­als and Aus­tralian Op­ti­mist Cham­pi­onships in Western Aus­tralia.

With a range of great items up for auc­tion, event or­gan­is­ers are hop­ing to see as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble tak­ing part in the bid­ding process or just com­ing along to spec­tate.

The ter­rific line up of ‘musthave’ items and vouch­ers to be auc­tioned in­cludes a reef trip, ac­com­mo­da­tion, din­ner vouch­ers and more.

There are also many ham­pers and packs which are sure to catch the at­ten­tion of the au­di­ence.

The auc­tion will be fol­lowed by live mu­sic from Tony Fossey at 7pm.

The club is en­cour­ag­ing com­mu­nity mem­bers to get be­hind its ju­niors by ei­ther donat­ing an item or ser­vice for auc­tion or by at­tend­ing the event it­self.
