It?s auction time
By Emma Cornford
From holidays to a delicious dinner cruise for six people, courtesy of Georgies chef Mark Hackett and Eddie Cox, people in the Clarence Valley will have the chance to bid for hundreds of quality prizes at the Grafton Midday Rotary's annual charity auction tonight at the South Grafton Ex-Servicemen's Club.
The Business Enterprise Centre has donated a trip to Norfolk Island, which includes accommodation and return flights.
Events and training manager Monica Clayton said the Norfolk Island trip would be suited to a keen golfer because it fell during the island's Fosters Pro-Am Golf tournament in August.
"At that time of the year we have the Clarence Valley Business expo ... so we've chartered an aircraft. It departs on the 15th and returns on the 20th," she said.
Greater Credit Union Grafton branch manager Kim Field said the company was donating 700 'triangle reward' points.
"They're very flexible. People can go to any state in Australia and there's some international holidays to Fiji and New Zealand," she said.
"Whoever bids doesn't have to be a customer. We just thought it's a good cause and we'd like to give back something locally to Grafton."
Tickets for tonight's event are $35 a head and include pre-dinner drinks, food and entertainment by voice impressionist Keith Scott. It is your last chance to buy them today at Bright Eyes in Shoppingworld and Harvey's Jewellers in Prince Street.
