Tonne of help for the Rotary Club

THE Rotary Club of Korumburra is holding its Annual Charity Dinner Auction this Saturday, October 18 at the Italian Social Club in Korumburra, commencing at 6.30pm.
The Rotary Club is indebted to the many local businesses that have donated goods or services to help raise funds for the Robyn Holmes Foundation, to support people and organisations, particularly in the local community.
The late Robyn Holmes was a tireless early childhood educator at Korumburra’s Birralee Child Care Centre for 25 years.
A community focused person, she loved to see children develop in their area of speciality, whether that be on the sporting field or in the classroom.
Robyn and Mark Holmes had three children of their own and the Holmes’ home was always full of their friends.
In the future, as the Robyn Holmes Foundation grows, it is planned to help South Gippsland families with young children that need help.
This year, the Rotary Club of Korumburra has received a substantial donation from Burra Foods for the auction, consisting of a pallet of milk powder.
This contains 40 X 25kg bags of high quality, powdered milk for feeding to calves.
People interested in purchasing some or all of these bags can place a bid on the Facebook page known as ‘Buy and sell Korumburra’ or ‘Buy and sell Leongatha’.
Alternatively, people can ring George Auddino on 0417311942 or Mark Holmes on 0418544127.
If there are any bags left they will be auctioned on Saturday night at the charity dinner auction.
The Rotary Club of Korumburra is very appreciative of this generous donation from Burra Foods.
Also on offer at the auction are prizes such as a Pacific Islands cruise, Melbourne accommodation, restaurant and clothing vouchers, Etihad Stadium Medallion Club tickets, local brewery and winery packages and the chance to be chauffeur driven to Parliament House with the Deputy Premier, Peter Ryan.
Tickets are $35 and available at Sport First and First National Real Estate in Korumburra.
The evening includes canapés followed by a two course meal and the night’s entertainment.
Proceeds raised will fund the training of a specialist teacher within the local cluster of schools to identify children with dyslexia so resources can be directed to those children with the greatest needs.
