South-west Australia: Cherries raise $140,000 for Perth Childrens Hospital

At the 30th annual Charity Cherry Auction, South-west Australian growers have raised a record-breaking $140,000 for Perth Children's Hospital

The cream of the crop was the traditional 5kg box of cherries from the Sweet Cherry Valley facility in Donnybrook. The Cusato family have donated the fruits for 17 years. The well-known box has been known to fetch tens of thousands of dollars, and this year was no different. The winning bid was $49,000, put up by Spudshed CEO Frankie Galati through a joint bid between Galati Group and Fred Fairthorne of Fernbrook Fresh.

"The Cherry Auction has been going strong for 30 years now, and it's once again been amazing to see everyone from the market community come together and dig deep to support WA kids," Tony Galati said.
