2oceansFm Broadcast from Lions Annual Action

2oceansFM recently broadcasted live from the annual Lions Auction.

The monster auction run by Leeuwin Lions at Augusta on Saturday January 14 raised $8000.

This figure was boosted to $10,000 by excellent sales from the Lions shed, a one-day raffle and good figures from the Lions bookshop and toyshop.

Club president Matt Russell said the joint recipients were the Asthma Foundation and Parkinson’s WA.

Driving the auction for the Lions was Alec Williams, a professional auctioneer with a great sense of humour and precision timing.

While bargain hunters had a great day, a number of items attracted good prices.

A well used Lions Mazda utility was sold for $1,500, a racing kayak went for $350 and six loads of firewood raised a total of $1,500.  However, a licensed dinghy on trailer failed to reach its reserve price and was passed in.

Auction committee chairman Ray Chuck thanked all the families and friends who attended the auction and the team of Lions, partners and volunteers who helped make it happen. He said auctioneer Alec Williams deserved a special accolade for an outstanding effort.
