First ever Nova’s Bids to Help Sick Kids kicks off!

Today marks the official launch of the inaugural Nova’s Bids to Help Kids – a silent auction to raise funds for the Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Nova’s breakfast team – Ash, Kip & Luttsy with Susie O’Neill – will kick things off with an outside broadcast live from the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital on Monday 29 October, with bidding for a range of generous prizes opening from 6am.

Jay Walkderden, Nova Brisbane General Manager, said it was a humbling and inspiring opportunity to be involved in this community event which benefits Queensland families, the Children’s Hospital Foundation and the incredible people who work there.

“It wouldn’t be Nova if we didn’t put our spin on things, so we’re creating some awesome opportunities that money CAN buy, like fishing with Ash, swimming with Susie or cooking with Kip, to encourage people to dig even deeper this year,” Jay said.

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

Rosie Simpson, Children’s Hospital Foundation Queensland Chief Executive Officer, said she was thrilled to partner with Nova 106.9 for the very first Nova’s Bids to Help Sick Kids.

“It is with the support of partners like Nova that allows us to keep working wonders for Queensland’s sickest kids and their families. Together, we inspire each other to achieve better outcomes for sick kids across the state,” Rosie said.

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

Auction items include a Mazda CX3 Maxx Sport, swim lessons by Susie O’Neill, a XXXX Brewery tour with Luttsy, a private cooking class with Kip, a fishing trip for you and three mates with Ash, a V8 race experience, a Samsung Galaxy Note 9 phone, hot air ballooning and breakfast for two, a Delonghi Nespresso Citix machine, a table at the 2018 Coffee Club ball, holidays, wine tastings, and much more.

Bidding will be open until 6pm on Friday, 16 November.
