IT WILL be music and sports memorabilia galore when residents come together to support those living with blood cancer.

The Leukaemia Support Queensland annual fundraiser dinner donates 100 per cent of proceeds to helping families within our region with leukaemia or lymphoma.

Leukaemia Support Queensland president Jane McMillan said there will be some fantastic prizes on auction.

"We have a charity pack from Sir Elton John, photos signed by Adele, Sam Smith and Ed Sheeran,” she said.

"We have a guitar signed by over 200 artists, a guitar signed by Casey Donovan, an original autograph signed by Betty Cuthbert before she passed and original entry tickets to the 1965 Olympic games to name a few.”

Jane said it's an important event that helps support numerous people in our community.

"All our members have been affected by leukaemia, lymphoma or some kind of blood disorder somewhere in their life,” she said.

"We are there to support patients and family in the area.

"We help them via financial assistance, getting to and from the doctors, anything you can think of, we do.”

Tickets cost $60 and includes a two-course meal but they are selling fast so get in quick.

Give Jane a call for more information on 0422 584 080.

The dinner will be held on October 28 from 6pm at the Caboolture RSL.
