Sam to auction off guys
IT'S a Leukaemia Foundation fundraiser with a twist - a room for ladies bidding for some of the Rose City's most eligible bachelors and some fantastic prizes.
The Horse and Jockey Hotel is expecting big crowds on Saturday, May 17 when Sam Bradfield brings a different kind of fundraiser to the Rose City.
Sam, who is raising money for the Leukaemia Foundation's annual World's Greatest Shave, said she wanted to do something "a bit out there".
"People will think it's fun because it's different," she said.
"I thought it would be fun to auction off the guys - I knew a few single guys who were keen."
Among the prizes included with some of the bachelors is a load of firewood delivered by one of the guys, a photo shoot with one, a PT session with Luke Peel, a date with one of the guys and three of the guys will also offer their services as topless waiters for a few hours.
Sam said there was still room for guys interested in being auctioned off to come on board.
"Some of the guys were really confident," she said.
"I've been told a lot of people are interested in bidding for the photo shoot."
While the event is set to be a fun night, Sam has a serious goal and a mission in mind.
Sam's grandmother, who passed away last year, was a survivor of leukemia.
"I wanted to do something to give back to the community and those who don't have the choice of shaving their heads," she said.
"It's such a common disease and I want to give to something everyone has been touched by."
Sam has already raised $375 towards her goal of $1500 before she shaves her head at the Sovereign Hotel on June 28.
"I'm excited about having my head shaved - I may get a little nervous as it gets closer," she said.
"I've had a lot of friends and people on Facebook support me."
The fundraiser will take place at the Horse and Jockey Hotel on Saturday, May 17 at 8pm.
Admission is $5 per person, with doors open between 6.30 and 7.30pm.
There will also be a DJ - Zac Murray and a range of raffles on the night.
