Instead of celebrating his 34th birthday with friends and family, former AFL player Russell ‘Robbo’ Robertson will head to Moama to perform at Kirsty Chugg’s auction fundraiser on November 24.
However, not many tickets have been sold and organisers are hoping people do not wait until the last minute to buy them.
‘‘Ticket sales are still very slow. Lots and lots of people are talking about it though,’’ fundraising committee member Vicki O’Connor said.
‘‘We really need people to buy their tickets now.
‘‘We believe that we will get a heap turn up at the auction night, without prior bookings, which is certainly going to make it difficult for catering.’’
Table bookings are limited and close at 5pm Wednesday.
Items to be auctioned on the night include a Top Gun jet flight, signed and framed memorabilia from AFL teams and players and Triple 8 Holden race team, holidays, accommodation and entertainment family packages, houseboat holidays, homegoods, children’s bikes, vouchers and One Direction packages.
It will also include silent auctions, discounted drinks, catering by Minute Chefs and entertainment by The Russell Robertson Band, backed up by Stephanie ‘Boo’ Love, and district artists.
The event will be held at Merool on the Murray function centre, starting at 6.30pm.
Tickets cost $60 and $25 for accompanied children under the age of 16 and are available at http:stickytickets.com.au/9385 or from the Riv.
