ANTICIPATION. EXHILARATION. SATISFACTION.
The 2018 Sydney Markets Cherry Auction is set to deliver all this and more with its annual return – bringing with it an exciting array of live entertainment, great food, a Silent Auction, raffles, celebrity appearances and, of course, the highly anticipated Live Auction!
Traditionally signifying the beginning of the stone fruit season, the Sydney Markets Cherry Auction was established in 1980 by Stan Hunt, a well-respected Wholesaler trading at Sydney Markets.
Since its inception 38 years ago, the Cherry Auction has raised over $1 million for a number of worthy charities.
As part of Your Local Greengrocer’s Million Dollar Mango promotion, ten lucky finalists will be invited to the big event – each stepping up on stage to have a crack at our “Bang The Button” game to reveal whether they’ve won our major prize – a hand crafted, 18 carat gold diamond mango pendant complete with necklace (valued at $10,000) – or one of our nine other amazing prizes (collectively worth over $30,000!) Everyone comes away a winner!
The excitement doesn’t stop there. The finalist who comes away with our exquisite, one-of-a-kind Million Dollar Mango pendant will also earn the right to play for the coveted “Million Dollar Mango” – picking just one fruit from a display of new-season mangoes numbered 1-500. If the numbered mango selected matches the number in our safe – the winner takes home a life-changing $1 million dollars cash!
But the question on everyone’s minds: How much will the Cherries sell for this year?
For the first time ever, Sydney Markets Cherry Auction is inviting businesses outside the Markets to bid on the first official box of cherries for the season! As well as being crowned 2018’s Cherry King/Queen, the winning bidder will enjoy approximately $2 million in free media exposure, not to mention boundless goodwill with all proceeds from this year’s Auction donated to the Save Our Sons Duchenne Foundation, which helps sufferers of Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) and their families.
To register to bid, contact Freshmark on (02) 9764 3244, or to attend check out the 2018 Sydney Markets Cherry Auction Facebook event page.
