East Perth Crown Lager Banquet Auction

Monday, July 29, 2019 - 4:44 PM

East Perth’s biggest fundraiser, the Crown Lager Banquet Auction was held at the magnificent Fraser’s Restaurant on Thursday the 25th of July.

Over 240 guests were treated to a perfect winter’s night overlooking Perth and the Swan River whilst enjoying a 3-course dinner curated by Head Chef Chris Taylor accompanied by West Cape Howe wines and Crown Lager.

Tiny Holly again showed why he is the best auctioneer in the business, entertaining the crowd and doing a magnificent job with the Auction. Simon Beaumont was equally impressive in his role as MC for the night.

President Bronte Howson opened the night, welcoming all guests and detailing how important the night was not only for the club this year, but for where we are headed looking forward.

Tiny and Simon then kicked into gear and auctioned off over 40 main auction items for the night. This was complemented by a huge Online Auction of over 400 items open to guests of the function and the public.

Through the generosity of our Sponsor, Members, supporters, donors and bidders the club was able to raise over $110,000 profit from the event, on what was a tremendous night for the club.
