Family and friends have organised a goods and services auction night at Girgarre Cricket Club to support Menique Richards’ family.

Menique, 29, tragically died on February 6 after an aggressive form of cancer took over her body.

She left behind her children, four-year-old twins Brodie and Tyren Trevaskis, and three-month-old twins Shylah and Mitchell Melverton.

The M&M Fundraiser features Kyabram DJ Sherman and loads of items for auction.

Some of the items include an AFL guernsey signed by Chris Judd and Nick Riewoldt, limousine hire valued at $500 and a Parliament House package, including a meal and accommodation.

Tickets are $10 for adults, $25 for a family.

Monetary donations can still be made into the M&M Fundraiser trust account at Bendigo Bank (BSB number 633-000; account number 147860993).

The fundraiser is at Girgarre Cricket Club on Saturday, February 23, at 7pm.
