23,000 reasons to smile

An auction/fundraiser night at the Cobar Bowling & Golf Club on Saturday has helped to raise $23,000 for this year’s Night for Our Farmers event. Auctioneer, Luke Scales from Landmark Russell is pictured with event organisers Sheena Geppert and Georgie Brown who were thrilled with the result from the sale of 87 lots of donated items. They money will go towards the costs of the Shannon Noll concert on July 27 which is hoped will help lift the spirits of local farmers doing it tough in the drought.
