Competition raises $2000 for hall upgrade
The Pearl Beach Progress Association has raised $2000 for its memorial hall improvements through its latest competition.
The aim was to guess the value of a prize pool which included chocolates, alcohol, art and craft works, perfume and skin care products.
And the price is $2577.28.
The winner was Pearl Beach resident Ms Bev Lapacek, whose guess of $2577.19 was closest to the actual value of $2577.28.
The competition that was held through November was an online initiative that could run during lockdown, when other fund-raising efforts could not.
Proceeds will go to finishing the hall upgrades, which have been affected by increased costs of building materials and delays due to the pandemic.
