A tradition running almost thirty years, this year’s Gala Auction is set to shine with it’s glamorous 1920’s theme.
With a range of fantastic auction items available, including holidays, gift baskets and wine, don’t miss out on this vibrant, social and fun night.

Saturday July 12 2014, West Adelaide Football Club will see Members, Sponsors, Staff and Players dress up in a glamorous 1920’s style when they attend the club’s Gala Auction.

An annual event that has been running for almost 30 years, the West Adelaide Football Club Gala Auction is not only one of the club’s biggest fundraisers, but is also a great social night out for Supporters of the club.

Last year raising over $40,000, the Gala Auction gives guests the opportunity to bid on a range of fantastic items during our major and silent auctions including holidays, gift baskets and wine in a vibrant, social and fun environment.

“We hope to raise a bit more for the Club this year” explained Marketing and Sponsorship Manager Sheila Woodhart.

“We have had some really exciting items to auction off, including an overseas holiday to Thailand thanks to Lewis & Turner Travel Associates, a trip to Sydney for a New Year’s Eve cruise and a Three-Day Clipsal 500 Pass.”

“The Thailand holiday includes flights, 5 nights accommodation, transfers and a range of other brilliant extras, and the Sydney trip has return airfare for 4 adults, 2 nights accommodation, and a cruise on the Starship Sydney to watch the fireworks at midnight of New Year’s Eve all whilst enjoying a delicious food and beverage package.”

Popular with guests in previous years, the night’s silent wine auction is also set to return, with West Adelaide General Manager Operations, David Wittwer explaining his vision for the evening.

“We hope to have wine tasting available for some of the wine items.”

“Giving bidders the opportunity to smell, taste, and observe the wines, will hopefully aid bidders in identifying what wines they enjoy and what they feel the wine’s value may be.”

With tickets already on sale, the event is already looking to be a sell-out.

Tickets for the 2014 Gala Auction are $70, which includes entry to the event and a 3 course meal. For more information contact the West Adelaide Football Club on 08 8352 4022 or general@westadelaidefc.com.au
