Auction items needed!
Each year a group of parents from the Under 11s age group organise the Wildcats Annual Fundraiser.
This AFL themed evening will be held on June 15th in the heart of Willoughby Wildcats territory at the Bridgeview Hotel, our club sponsor!
The evening is pitched as a good old fashioned “social” event where we can all relax, laugh and indeed raise some valuable funds for our footy club – directly benefiting all our kids.
We are excited to see as many Wildcats parents there as possible, so book the babysitter NOW and be ready for a great night out! Willoughby Wildcats is an amazing community of families and outstanding volunteers – let’s celebrate together in June. The night promises to be fun – great food & wine, silent and live auctions. Let’s All Contribute to Make the Night a huge success!
Do you have an auction item that you would like to donate?
At this time, we are asking each of our families/age groups to contribute (or source) an item for the prize pool (think of your connections & don’t be shy!).
If you have an Auction item, no matter how big or small please contact Emma Costain via email by the end of this week.
Tickets will be on sale soon so save the date – Saturday 15th June!

How would you like to kick the first ever goal at the brand new Gore Hill Oval? Here at the Willoughby Wildcats we are giving one of our players or supporters the opportunity to be part of the official Council opening ceremony on Saturday, March 9th and to kick the first of many goals at the new home of the Wildcats.
The formal part of the official ceremony will start at 3:00 and should finish around 3:15. Before and during this part of the ceremony the general public will not be allowed onto the playing field, but once that’s over the whole ground will be open to all. Before that happens, however, one lucky person will get to kick the first ever goal, from a distance of his or her choice!
The winner will be selected by draw, with an entry fee of $10. Enter as many times as you like. Funds raised will go towards purchasing a new defibrillator for Gore Hill Oval, so it’s a great cause. Entry fees can be paid at the following bank account – please enter your surname and phone number when making the payment.
Entries will be accepted until 8:00pm on Thursday, March 7th and the winner announced here shortly after.
Just a quick update to let you know about some of the key dates to be aware of between now and the start of the season.
