NOVUS 2022 Gala LATINO Dinner - Friday 27 May 2022 
This year we plan to have approximately 80 items for the Silent Auction (20 from each beneficiary). In addition, we will select 5 items for the Raffle and we understand the Committee will have approximately 7 Live Auctions including a Scenic Tour on the Mekong River and a one week self-drive hire on a luxury narrowboat from their Warwickshire base. They have a fleet of 27 boats, ranging from 3 to 5 star, sleeping from 2 to 8 people.
We are meeting with the beneficiaries every week for a short meeting to provide them with a place to ask questions and to ensure we don’t duplicate the Silent Auction items.  This has proved to be a really excellent way to guarantee we maintain good communications and learn from one another.
 The Silent Auctions will be laid out in the foyer area at the bottom of the stairs with the Wine Tombola at the Western end.  The Wine Tombola will have bottles valued at between $20 and $30 with a number of higher value bottles sprinkled amongst them.

Any questions on the auctions please call  Bob Howe on 0411 186 722
