Hawks Winning Form Continues With Galabid

Hawthorn FC continued their winning form with success in their Club best & fairest auction on Saturday night. The fundraising target of $35,000 was achieved through pre-event bidding before the event had even begun. Always up for a challenge Hawks set a new target of $55k and were delighted when that too was over achieved. GalaBid seems to be their new lucky charm. With the support of GalaBid in 2015 we're sure the Hawks will be a winner on and off the field.

Stephen Fry Tweets Galabid Why You Should Be

Our UK branch of GalaBid received a little nod from a great man recently when Stephen Fry drew attention to a recent signed tie of his that was listed in one of our clients auctions - East Anglia's Children's Hospice. GalaBid often gets used by celebrities at fundraising events and it's great to see them get behind appeals and use their status as a way to draw exposure to some of these great causes.
