The Pearl Beach Progress Association is running a fundraiser throughout the month of October to help generate funds for the upkeep of the Memorial Hall.
Based off the popular game, ‘The Price is Right’ the fundraiser will invite prospective players to play the game by choosing from a selection of price ranges.
Prices range from $5 per guess or $20 for five guesses, with the closest or ‘winning’ guesses able to choose from a selection of items such as wine, spirits, local artwork, sculptures, pottery and accessories.
The Association credited the COVID-19 pandemic and ‘restrictive influences’ as putting a ‘great strain’ on the finances of the group, and its need for the extra funds.
Association President, Russell Grove, said the fundraiser would act as a great way to shop early for special Christmas gifts.
“We are seeking help from residents, visitors and friends of Pearl Beach to assist us in ensuing the Memorial Hall can continue to play the vital role in our community that was always intended,” Grove said.
“We are therefore looking at all sorts of ways to raise funds and this initiative is one that we are able to run during this time of lock down to allow us to finish the Hall upgrades.
“We would be grateful if the community can help us to achieve this goal, please access the website link to make your offer.”
