Silent auction helps Daly and Josefski families this weekend

THE Gympie community is giving back to families in need this Christmas in so many ways.

One of the events taking place this weekend is an online auction to raise money for the Daly and Josefski families who lost their beloved mother Nicole (Daly) and father Jeremy (Josefski) in a horror fatal car accident in October.

Everyone is welcome to join in the bidding.

Donations have been received from businesses, the community and private donations from out of town.

There are more than 60 great prizes to be won including cinema tickets, family passes to the Muster, fuel vouchers and alcohol packages.

"With it being so close to Christmas, it is the perfect opportunity for last-minute gift shopping," organiser Bambi Gosbell said.

Jebson Herrod, owner of Gympie Family Dental, has also offered the families a free voucher for basic dental care for as long as he owns that business.

"I wanted to help them out and hope they heal," Mr Herrod said.

"I have six kids and know how much dental needs cost."

The auction began last night and ends 6pm tomorrow.
