Start the bidding… Nova’s bids to help sick kids is launched!

Nova 106.9 has launched their second Nova’s Bids to Help Sick Kids, a silent auction to raise funds for the Children’s Hospital Foundation as part of the Nine Telethon.

Ash, Kip, Luttsy and Susie kicked things off with a live broadcast from the Queensland Children’s Hospital on Monday, 28 October.

Last year Nova raised $77,383 and this year the team would love to beat that total.  Bids can be made on the silent auction website www.novabids.com.au .  The final amount will be presented to the Children’s Hospital Foundation by Nova’s Ash, Kip, Luttsy and Susie, on the night of the 2019 Nine Telethon, Saturday, November 16.

The silent auction items include a Hyundai Kona Active plus much more, and bidding is now open.  Some items have a shorter bidding period, so place your bid early to make sure you don’t miss out.

Nine Queensland Managing Director, Kylie Blucher, said: “Nova’s Bids to Help Sick Kids is a fantastic initiative to raise funds for such an important cause. We are thrilled to partner again with Nova and the Children’s Hospital Foundation to strengthen donations for the 2019 Nine Queensland Telethon.”

Jay Walkerden, Nova Brisbane’s Program Director, said: “It’s a humbling and inspiring opportunity to be involved in this community event which benefits Queensland families facing some pretty tough challenges, our Children’s Hospital, and the incredible people who work there.

“We’re looking forward to playing our part in helping Nine to raise as much money as possible for the Children’s Hospital Foundation and supporting Queensland families when they need it most.”

“We’re thrilled to partner with Nova 106.9 again in 2019 for the second Nova’s Bids to Help Sick Kids.

“It’s the support of partners like Nova that allows us to keep working wonders for Queensland’s sickest kids and their families. Together, we can help give all Queensland children the best care, treatments and outcomes.

“I am looking forward to seeing Queenslanders come together for Nova’s Bids to Help Sick Kids, and we can’t wait to see the final result on Telethon night.”
