On June 1, the Conservation Council for the ACT Region will host a World Environment Day dinner at the National Museum to raise vital funds for their environmental work across our nation’s capital.
The dinner will include a live auction event, with a number of items generously donated by individuals and businesses from across Australia. Money raised will go directly to supporting the Council’s current and future campaigns.
Auction items have gone live on ALLBIDS, with two very special items set to end this Sunday so successful bidders have a chance to prepare for the experience of a lifetime.
“On offer is two lots of double guest passes to the sold-out Midnight Oil Reconciliation Day show at the Royal Theatre on Monday, May 27,” explains Helen Oakey, Executive Director for the Conservation Council.
“The winning bidder also receives a signed poster and has their names added to the band’s guest list. The auctions for these passes end Sunday May 19 so guests have enough time to get on the list and prepare for the event.”
There are a number of other innovative items available through the Environment Day auction, such as:
- a two-car solar carport (or ecoport) – fantastic for people whose houses can’t take solar panels or who have electric vehicles
- a hyper-efficient solar hot water system that uses the same technology as induction cooktops to heat water
- weekend accommodation at Malua Bay for four people with a Tesla Model S to drive
Overall there are just under 90 other auction items up for grabs on ALLBIDS.
“Other funky items on our auction list include a dinner with the Australia Institute’s Richard Dennis and Ben Oquist, eco-shopping vouchers, a weekend in beautiful Tidbinbilla, and even a crate of recycled toilet paper from Encore Tissue!” says Helen. “The items on offer speak to the values and issues that the Conservation Council works on in the ACT and region.
“The theme of the dinner is Optimism and Defiance, and our guest speaker is Dr Bob Brown. We will also have a speaker from the Student Strikes for Climate, and some great music with George Washingmachine and an Inconvenient Groove playing. It’s going to be a great night!”
Rob Evans, CEO of ALLBIDS, says “The Conservation Council works tirelessly to protect our beautiful city and its environment, and this is a unique opportunity to give back and help them do more while buying some fantastic items.
“We hope Canberrans will support the auction because all money raised will go directly to the Council whose work benefits us all.”
