Fun lunch, auction for the worthy cause of Autism
You can help the worthy cause of supporting Alzheimer's patients while getting rid of unwanted "stuff" at the same time. The Southern Cape branch of Alzheimer's SA is holding a fundraising lunch and auction on Saturday 26 May and would be extremely grateful to receive unneeded items that will command a high price at auction. If you cannot attend, you can still donate your "stuff" beforehand.
The Alzheimer's SA Southern Cape volunteers train carers at frail care homes, offer counselling in the home and over the telephone, give advice on caring for patients and organise talks on Alzheimer's to educate friends and family of sufferers. Funds is needed to pay for their petrol and telephone costs and the printing of their training manuals.
Items you can bring to be auctioned:
That mountain bike you no longer need because you bought a better one.
Perhaps you downsized and don't have space for your paintings or Persian rugs.
Jewellery that no longer has sentimental value.
Do you have a collection of vintage or other cars? Why not auction one? Bring it to the parking lot at the Ochre Venue at Café Gannet for everyone to view.
A spare motorcycle you no longer ride. Fancy kitchen or home gizmos that others will enjoy.
All items must be in good working order and attractive for potential bidders. Expect some surprises on the day, because you may wish to bid on an "experience" you will enjoy, not an item. Vredebest Auctioneers in Mossel Bay has kindly agreed to do the auction for free.
The fun event will take place at the Ochre Venue at the Café Gannet Restaurant in Mossel Bay at 12:00 on Saturday 26 May. Tickets for the lunch cost R170. To book your place, contact Hettie Theron on
082 699 7600 / 044 877 0417. Booking is essential and should be done by Friday 18 May.
