With the release of their radio auction items just around the corner, the Rotary Club of Greater Geraldton is confident it will top last year’s fundraising efforts.

The Rotary Radio Auction event will be held at the Telstra office in Geraldton at the end of the month, with Rotarians and volunteers ready to take telephone bids all day and fundraise for local organisations.

The Rotary Radio Auction pamphlet will be released in the Geraldton Guardian on Friday, October 28, preparing bidders for auction day on Sunday, October 30. The club is hoping to raise enough funds to claim a total of $1 million since the annual auction fundraiser was established.

New Rotary Club of Greater Geraldton president Jo Clarke said she was excited to raise the bar from last year’s auction, which raised more than $36,000, and was proud to be part of the long-time event.

“Many new items will appear this year,” she said.

“I been overwhelmed at the generosity of so many wonderful people. We are now able to move forward to help for those in need with the funds raised from this annual event.”

The Rotary Club radio auction remains similar in format since it began in Geraldton 30 years ago.
