Help boys visit US specialist
SOUTH Tweed Sports and the Tweed indigenous community are working together to help send the Williams boys to America.
Ernie and Karla Williams are taking their three sons on the trip of a lifetime next week, with hopes an American specialist may be able to help the boys, who suffer from a rare medical condition.
The family is appealing for support for the trip as the boys are not eligible for travel insurance.
A silent auction is under way at South Tweed Sports with four artworks and a piece of pottery up for grabs. The auction closes at 5pm on Sunday.
Written bids, from members and visitors, must be accompanied by a $2 donation, and the winners will be notified by phone.
Club CEO Gordon Rhodes said the artwork, on display in the front foyer, was collectively estimated at more than $2500.
Jeannie Jacky, Leweena Williams, Perry Thompson and Robert Appo donated the art.
“I encourage all art lovers to visit and bid strongly for a great cause,” club art gallery director Ken Walding said.
