Local people turn into slaves for fundraiser

By Mark Beale

HAVE you ever considered having Whitsunday MP Jason Costigan, Member for Dawson George Christensen or Ray White Whitsunday principal Mark Beale do your dirty work?

Well that dream could soon be reality as part of a celebrity auction which will take place at Logan’s Adventure Playground’s ’80s night next month.

These three local figures will go under the hammer on Friday, October 3 at the Anchor Bar, which will be the venue for the playground’s fundraiser for stage 2. Logan’s Adventure Playground project manager Kellie Chart said it was really important to keep momentum going for stage 2 “so we can have it done by this year”.

“It will come down to how much money is raised as to how big stage 2 will be. So start thinking now what you could make them [Mr Costigan, Mr Christensen or Mr Beale] do,” she said.

The three local identities aren’t the only items up for grabs at the auction, with day trips, artwork and much more set to go.

Ms Chart encouraged everyone to attend the night in their best ’80s gear as prizes will be awarded for best dressed.

’80s music will be provided by local band Tropic Temple while food from that era will also be supplied. For more information, visit the playground’s Facebook page at
