Fire brigade benefits from bar sale
The Patonga fire brigade has received $2125 from the sale of a redundant bar at its local hotel.
The "America's Cup Bar", which was bought from the Sydney Hilton in 2002, was put up for auction in April to make way for renovations at the Patonga Hotel.
Hotel owners, the Boat House Group, sold the bar with its original timber bar top, brass fittings and timber glass rack, according to media manager Ms Ruby Flew.
The bar was named by the Sydney Hilton because it was used during the 1983 America's Cup.
Renovations at the Hilton saw the bar dismantled and auctioned off in 2002, and bought by then Patonga Beach Hotel owner Mr Robert Osborne.
