Leader: ConnectGV chief executive Bruce Giovanetti.

ConnectGV chief executive Bruce Giovanetti said the selection for this year’s charity auction was the best yet.

‘‘Over 41 items up are up for grabs and 12 of those items will auctioned on the evening by Kevin Hicks,’’ Mr Giovanetti said. ‘‘There will be a silent auction for the other 28 items.

‘‘This has been the best year as far as donations for the auction.’’

He said among the items was a personal visit to the Swettenham and Lindsay Park Studs and weekend stays, including on Lindenwarrah Estate.

Microsoft tablets, chauffeur-driven winery tours of Tallis Winery are also up for sale.

Mr Giovanetti said the previous two years of charity auctions had raised $30000 each.
