Hospital fundraiser at GV Hotel on Friday.
Have fun while supporting your community is the message from organisers of one of the biggest Christmas fundraisers in Shepparton.
The 2012 Friends of Goulburn Valley Health Christmas Tree Auction at the GV Hotel on Friday evening aims to raise thousands of dollars for GV Health’s emergency department.
Auction committee chairman Shane Hughan said businesses had donated 14 Christmas trees, which had been decorated with presents.
They are set to be auctioned by Shepparton real estate agent Mathew Chilcott in a glittering evening hosted by Damien ‘‘Will’’ Willoughby from 3SR FM.
There will be a guest appearance from StarFM’s Jordan and Steph and entertainment by Shepparton singer-songwriter Briana Lee.
Mr Hughan urged people to join in the fundraising celebration.
‘‘It’s a terrific way to contribute and have some Christmas fun at the same time,’’ he said.
Last year’s auction raised about $15
Mr Hughan said the new Friends of GV Health committee had been busy aiming to make this another successful event.
