Over $16,000 raised for Kato Ottio Memorial fund through Indigenous jersey Auction
The Canberra Raiders have raised over $16,000 for the Kato Ottio Memorial fund through the auction of the club's Indigenous jerseys worn in round 10 at GIO Stadium.
With the help of the club's official online auction partner www.allbids.com.au, the club was able to raise a total of $16,442, which will be added to the money raised so far through the Go Fund Me page set up earlier this year.
In total over $28,000 has been raised so far through the generous support of the Go Fund Me page and the online auction of the jerseys.
The most popular jersey of the Indigenous auction was the jersey signed by the entire squad, with a total of $1520 raised from the one jersey. The top player jersey was Jarrod Croker's ($1150), while Jack Wighton, Nick Cotric, Sia Soliola, Shannon Boyd and Josh Papalii's jerseys all raised $1000 each.
The Raiders would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who participated in the auction and www.allbids.com.au for hosting and facilitating the auction.
