Starlight fundraiser nets more than $9000

THE fifth annual ACT Corrective Services Starlight Foundation fundraiser at O’Brien’s Hotel, Narooma has raised another big chunk of cash for sick kids.

Prison officers and their families numbering about 40 hopped on their motorbikes and in their cars for their annual pilgrimage to the pub with the Million Dollar View.

The charity auction and raffle on Saturday night raised just over $9000.

Publican Paul O’Brien hands over $3000 raised during the Narooma Flathead Classic to fundraiser organiser Glenn Wickham.

Raw Prawn Bistro owner Scott Cavanagh paid $750 to invest in and take home this signed Adam Scott playing cap the golfer wore in his recent US Masters win.

Glenn thanked Paul, Scott and all the supporters for making the event a continued success and said they would all be back next year to do it all again.

The fundraiser over the years has now raised more than $60,000.

Neil Langford from Young won the $1000 cash prize, Justin Fahey from Nicholls won the $500 Coles Myer gift card and Wayne Bahnhan from Canberra the $250 Bunnings card.
