Auction to support our junior sailors
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.
For more information, call Ali Swain on 0404 723 224, or to book a table for the event, call the Whitsunday Sailing Club on 4946 6138.
