Sunday Morning Update

Still a great time to come and encourage Mark to continue, he has done a great job so far, and so has everyone who has helped so far.
Drop in and say G’day to Mark, donate as much as you can, either at the oval or online (see below), and keep Mark going. To all those who have donated – THANK YOU! – at last count on everydayhero (Mark’s donation page) the donations were $23,575, a magnificent amount – please keep donating.


The event will be at the Eudunda Oval, starting at 10am on the 24th March.
Mark & the volunteers of the Barossa Valley Make-A-Wish® Australia have been busy seeking donations for their fund raising auction which will be part of the event. They have already secured some great items. ‘Budgie’ Schiller of B M Livestock is an experienced auctioneer and will conduct the auction which is currently scheduled for 5:30 for a 6:00pm start on Saturday. Contact Natalie Scholz if you would like to have an Auction Bid sheet – phone: 08 8581 1194.

Dustan from the great Aussie movie RED DOG will attend.

There will be many supporting activities,
Entertainment will be provided for children, textile and photography competitions, local bands to provide entertainment into the night.
Personalities from the AFL Crows and Port Power will attend. The auction will have some valuable, highly sort after items for the bidding, continuous BBQ and much more.
