Three year old Frankee-Lee was born with Atresia meaning she was born without ear canals. After a successful fundraising drive last year, leading Atresia repair surgeon, Dr. Joseph Roberson in the USA performed an operation on her left ear which has enabled her to hear for the first time in her life. Her left ear hearing has improved to the extent that it is now classified as only mild loss.
Her second operation to restore hearing to her right ear is scheduled for September this year and another fundraising drive is on to raise $50,000 to cover the operation, airfares and accommodation in the USA. To help reach this target Tewantin Noosa RSL is hosting a fundraiser auction.
Frankee-Lee’s Hearing Spree Auction is on Saturday 25 May from 6pm for a 6.30pm start. The Michelle Brown Duo will be performing to kick off the event followed by two auctions led by auctioneer Greg Peeler.
There are currently 71 auction items worth thousands of dollars up for grabs on the auction list. Tickets are $10 for an auction bid card and nibbles. You must have a ticket to bid. There are only 200 tickets being sold so make sure you purchase one early to avoid disappointment.
Auction items have been donated from generous businesses and benefactors. From artworks and sporting memorabilia to vouchers and holidays – there is such a variety of items that there is sure to be something to entice everyone present to raise their bidding card.
Additional items are still being sought and anyone interested in contributing to the auction or making a donation to the cause can contact Emma Shaw via email on firstname.lastname@example.org, through the website http://frankeelee.wix.com/frankee-lee or by phone on 0428 313 932.
The Tewantin Noosa RSL has also donated prizes for a raffle with an LG 55” LED Smart TV and LG 3D Bluray DVD Home Theatre System with wireless rear speakers valued at $2,400. Tickets are $2 and will be drawn on the night of the fundraiser. Auction tickets and raffle tickets are available for sale from Tewantin-Noosa RSL reception or dial’n’charge on 5447 1766.
