Make a bid for a Rabbitoh

IF you visit any of the National Australia Bank branches in the Clarence Valley next week and spot a 2011 South Sydney Rabbitohs training jersey which is signed by all of the players, it could be yours by Friday.

As a part of its fundraising efforts, the Yamba Relay For Life Committee has managed to secure not one, but two signed Rabbitohs training jerseys, as well as a couple of signed caps, and plan on auctioning them off in aid of cancer research, says committee member Michelle Gillies.

“We will be running an open auction of one of the jerseys through the Yamba, Grafton and Maclean National Australia Bank branches, and 2GF have come on board too and will announce what the bid is up to each day,” Michelle said.

“The auction will start Monday and will run through to Friday.

“Then on the Saturday night, we will hold a live auction for the second jersey, at the 2011 Yamba Relay For Life.”

The 2009 Yamba Relay For Life was so successful that Michelle can’t wait to take to the track next weekend.

“In 2009 we managed to raise $70,000 for the Cancer Council. This year we are hoping for between $40,000 and $50,000,” she said.

At the moment, there are 30 teams registered for the Relay For Life, which will begin at 3pm on Saturday, April 2. However, Michelle is hoping for another 10 to come on board before that date.

To become involved, head to relay.cancercouncil.com.au where you can register a whole team or join an existing one.
