Kiama auction and exhibition raises $13k for Will Clarke

A very unique auction and exhibition titled ‘Kiama Bats for Willo’ and hosted by the crew at Beachside Emporium, has ended up a huge success.

The fundraising evening was held in support of Bowral’s Will Clarke, 21, who lives with autism and runs his own cricket bat recycling business.

On the night, 49 bats were offered at auction, with all of them sold. 

Michael Tikkeros's sculpture of a ship with the cricket bat forming the deck and titled ‘All Hands on Deck’, was sold for the highest bid, reaching $2,220.

All together the organisers and artists raised $13,000 for Willo Industries.
