HOWLONG firefighters are looking to raise their most needed funds yet in the lead up to what could be the North East’s worst season.
The 12th annual Fire Brigade Monster Auction will be held at Howlong Fire Station tomorrow.
Up to 800 people are expected to attend the event where it is hoped $10,000 will be raised.
Secretary Clinton Franks said it would be a family day with some big ticket items up for auction.
“A 1930s Furphy water cart tank is the main auction item,” he said.
“We’ve got boats, cars, antiques, household items, there’s something for everybody.”
Money raised goes directly into the Howlong Fire Brigade for extra equipment.
“In the past, we’ve extended our shed, renovated the inside with the money,” Mr Franks said.
Howlong preschool will cater with a barbecue lunch and there will be carnival rides.
Entry is free. The auction will kick off at 9.30am and is expected to wrap up by noon.
