Monster auction to aid family
A FOOTBALL signed by some of the greats of rugby league will be one of the highlights of a fundraising auction to be held in 'The Barn' at the Grafton Showground at noon tomorrow.
Signatures include those of Bill Harrigan, David Gallop, Gorden Tallis, Mark (Spud) Carroll, Robbie O'Davis, Ron Coote and a host of others.
Bernie Barron from the Grafton Lions Club has collected more than $6500 worth of new goods from Grafton business houses for the auction, but that does not include a raft of other material donated by members of the public.
He has also collected close to $1400 in cash.
The auction will raise money for the Stoker family. Mark and Cindy Stoker both have terminal tumours.
They have four young children.
The service clubs of the Clarence Valley have been collecting goods for the auction and organisers are hoping for a good turn out.
