Have you ever been to a cent auction? Whether it’s your first time or you’ve been to a cent auction before, you’ll get the chance to enjoy this event in Mt Gravatt this August.

On Saturday, the 31st of Aug 2019, the Ladies Auxiliary of the Greek Orthodox Southside Parish on Creek Road is hosting a cent auction from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. 

For $10, guests will be entitled to one sheet to participate in the auction and they may also partake in afternoon tea and Baklava.

In a cent auction, you bid using tickets found on your sheet. This paper bears a stub with your assigned number. If you like an item at the auction, just take out a stub from your sheet and put this in the box or bucket. After everyone has made their bids, a stub will be drawn from those boxes or buckets to determine the winner of the item for bidding. 

If you really want that item, you can put as many stubs as you want to increase your chances of winning.



A cent auction is a great way to raise funds, as well as a wonderful activity to engage the community.

To join the event in Mt Gravatt, book ahead to be counted for the catering by phoning or texting Vikki at 0408 725 658.
