Donations wanted for The Price is Right

The Pearl Beach Progress Association is seeking donations for its "The Price is Right" fundraiser.

Association vice-president Mr Greg McPhee said the event will help support the Memorial Community Hall's finances during this difficult time.

Mr McPhee said he was reminded of an engagement party he attended many years ago,

"You know the ones that stop mid-way through so the newly engaged couple can open the gifts from guests.

"Being poor we threw in with some friends to buy a gift.

"It didn't take long for our group to be in hysterics as the couple opened the third Wiltshire knife set.

"No prizes for guessing what our group had bought.

"Yes it was the 70s. Great knives, but who needs four sets?"

Mr McPhee said: "We all have items that are surplus to our needs: The bottle of spirits you will never drink, the tea set when you only drink coffee, the beautiful perfume not quite your style, the bottle of Champagne you don't like, that tie and belt set you no longer need.

"Perhaps you might donate these to our 'Price is Right' basket.

"We are looking those sort of items to complete our gift basket."
