A big night for football fans



THE Majos Soccer Club is organising a fund raising night on Saturday, June 3 at Legacy House, formerly Grafton Gentlemen's Club to kick start the 2006 Football World Cup which commences on June 9.

This event is being organised as a fun social night out for parents and supporters of not only the Majos Club but also those who enjoy sport in general.

The World Cup Calcutta night will be a major highlight for all supporters of football (soccer) within the Clarence Valley as well as being a major fund raising event to support the development of players within the Majos Club.

Alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks along with finger type food will be on sale at realistic prices.

The night commences at 6pm with the Calcutta teams auction taking place from 7.30pm. The auctioneer will be Matt Dougherty.

For those who are not familiar with a Calcutta, raffle tickets are purchased and placed into a draw to be held on the night. Winning raffle tickets from the draw are then placed with a World Cup team which is also drawn on the night.

This World Cup team is then offered up for auction and sold to the highest bidder.

The owner of the original winning raffle ticket will then receives half of the auction price for that World Cup team. Raffle tickets for the night are $2 each; ticket packages are also available which offer raffle tickets, and vouchers for food and drink.

Tickets can be purchased from any Majos Soccer player, Low Pressure Surf Co in Prince Street or at the door on the Calcutta night.
