The Combined Clearing Sale hosted by Caragabal in late August has been deemed a great success by the community, raising a whopping $19,679.39 for the Australian Cancer Research Foundation.
Many locals attended to show their support on the day, and sales were described as 'reasonable' for the uncertain dry period that has persisted. Forbes Livestock, Aston & Joyce and CJ Anderson ran a professional sale, and their generosity was essential to success of the day.
Event organiser Karen Pollock was humbled by the support the day received; "Everybody just jumped on board and made it a success, the Caragabal community volunteers, the stock and station agents and the wonderful admin staff made it all happen on the day.
“I was overwhelmed by the number of people who entered their items, donated items to be auctioned, sponsored the event and turned up to support the day. It really does prove that so many people have been touched by Cancer, and everybody wants to do their part to put an end to this insidious disease! Thank you all from the bottom of my heart!"
The Australian Cancer Research Foundation is a unique cancer charity foundation in Australia.
Their mission is to end cancer by providing world-class scientists with the equipment they need to improve prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer. They are able to ensure that only the most promising cancer research initiatives in Australia receive their charity foundation funding, thanks to their esteemed Medical Research Advisory Committee.
They are also renowned for using the vast majority of each donated dollar for their cause, with only a small percentage going to towards the running costs of the charity. Your donation will give Australia’s best researchers the tools they need to end all cancers.
