Carnalridge PTA organise charity auction with a difference!

FANCY a Harley Davidson for the weekend? Or a hot air balloon flight?

Or would you like to own a leather-bound review of the 2010 US Open signed by the winner, Graeme McDowell?

Then, you need to make a date in your diary for the Carnalridge Primary School PTA auction in Rathmore Golf Club on Friday, April 8th.

The PTA has pulled together an amazing array of more than 80 lots to raise funds to build an adventure playground.

Viewing begins at 7pm with the auction commencing at 8pm with Michael Gaston and Andrew Dalzell wielding the hammer!

The event, which is open to the general public, also features out-of-the-ordinary lots such as a limousine for an hour, a child’s pedal Massey Ferguson, three hours electrical work by a qualified electrician, a night in the Best B&B in Ireland run by the UK’s Friendliest Landlady in Holywood, County Down; dinner for eight cooked in your own home by an outside caterer with a pianist to accompany the evening; a flight over the north coast, Graeme McDowell and Darren Clarke signed polo shirts.

As well as these unusual items, there are scores of vouchers for beauty treatments, overnight stays, perfume, animal feed, wine, meals, jewellery, paintings, motorbike lessons, music lessons - the list is quite amazing.

Admission is free with a small fee for the catalogue and there’s complimentary wine and cheese. Why not go along and pick up a fantastic bargain!
