El Arish Cent Sale a tremendous success

A full house at the El Arish RSL Memorial Hall for the Cent Sale last Saturday.

AROUND 300 people attended the popular and successful Cent Sale in the El Arish RSL Memorial Hall on Saturday, August 7. The event was organised by the El Arish State School Centenary Sub-Committee as part of fund-raising activities to celebrate the school’s centenary next year. The school turns one hundred years old in May 2022 and this centenary will be celebrated during the September 2022 school holidays.

One hundred and ten quality and excellent value items were donated by local businesses and members of the community. These were attractively displayed and proved extremely popular with attendees. 

The sausage sizzle and afternoon tea were welcomed by the large crowd of supporters. 

Event was capably organized and directed by May Perger, assisted by Jean Dal Zilio. The Sub-Committee thanks all the diligent volunteers in the kitchen and selling tickets at the front door, in the bar, the cooks, and the people who helped to clean up on Sunday morning. 

The event’s major sponsor was Mitre 10 Tully, which donated a Weber BBQ. The lucky winner of this prize was Shane Knuth.

The Sub-Committee gratefully acknowledge the very generous donations given by so many local businesses and private members of the community, who are too numerous to individually list, but all of whom are appreciated and generously contributed to the success of this event.
