Over $20,000 raised for the Angus Foundation

May 24, 2017 11:54 am

During the Gala Dinner held on the Thursday night of the #GrowAngus National Conference an auction was held to raise money for the Angus Australia Foundation.

Eighteen wonderful donations were live auctioned by Nick Grey of Elders Ararat VIC on the evening, with 5 lots also available for silent auction.

The live auction was also interfaced by AuctionsPlus this year, with 21 registered bidders and 26 registered as guests online.

The auction was once again a huge success, raising in excess of $20,000 for the Angus Foundation which provides funds for the wonderful Scholarships, Awards and Bursaries scheme facilitated by Angus Youth.

Sincere thanks must go to those who donated items to be auctioned on the night and also to those who bid on these items. Without the support of individuals and businesses such as these Angus Youth would not have the ability to offer the Scholarship Awards and Bursaries scheme currently on offer.
