Funds raised for Cystic Fibrosis Queensland at a dinner and auction held at the Yamba Shores Tavern have exceeded the organiser’s expectations.
Anthony and Kate Edwards, whose daughter Chloe suffers from the condition, have held previous fundraisers in 2012 and 2104, which raised $5,002 and $6058 respectively – this time $11,300 was raised.
Ms Edwards thanked the many local businesses and individuals who donated raffle prizes and auction items, as well as all of the people who attended the dinner.
“The generous support and unexpected donations on the night were overwhelming,” she said.
Notably, Ms Edwards mentioned the following donations: Yamba Shores Tavern, $500; Ray White, LJ Hooker and First National real estate agents, $500 each; and, Yamba Iluka Real Estate, $200.
The Yamba Shores Tavern Fishing Club donated $1,000, as reported in last week’s newspaper.
