Angel-Paws Inc. is a Townsville based charity that specialises in offering abandoned and rejected animals a second chance at life. They are holding the Angel-Paws Inc. Annual Charity Auction on June 12, 2015, at the George Coates TAFE Student Restaurant. It is their main fundraising event for the year hosting over 200 attendees and they hope to raise over $15000.
One of the most exciting auction items is a cricket bat that has been signed by the Brisbane Heat. It has the autographs of all players from the 2014-15 season on it, including Mitchell Johnson, Andrew Flintoff and Daniel Vettori. They aim to include supporters from all over Queensland, not just those based in the local area.
Proxy bidding will be available for those who are unable to attend the auction in person. Registering for proxy bidding is easy, you only need to email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and contact number, the item you are interested in and your minimum and maximum bid for each item. Then, on the night, a staff member will bid on your behalf in increments from the auctioneer, up to the maximum you decided. The staff member will endeavour to minimise your cost while bidding to win the item on your behalf.
This is a unique and very exciting opportunity for cricket enthusiasts everywhere to support an organisation doing good work in Townsville.
