Silent Auction Highlights

The  White Party silent auction was fantastic.  Some of the highlights:

Prize with the most interest – the cricket bat signed by the Australian Cricket team.  I’m guessing that it is definitely not going to the pool room, given the price that one went for!

Most highly fought over – the dinner party for 10 donated by Eliza, organiser of the party and extraordinary caterer on the side.  Anyone who has ever eaten Eliza’s cooking will understand the passion of those bidding!

Most expensive prize – the painting from the fabulous Mel Cosgrave who created it specially for the White Party .

Most controversial finish – the Constitution signed by Xanana Gusmao was won with, literally, a last moment bid.  The price would have been even higher had they known that copies of the Constitution can only be issued on application to the National Parliament.
