Real Estate agent and L J Hooker Ballina owner, Michael Shay didn’t know when he left his house on the evening of Saturday 10 August to head out to a masquerade ball, that he was about to become the winning bidder in an auction.
No, he wasn’t in the market for property, although he did know the auctioneer Wilson Cregan who works for L J Hooker and is a talented sales person.
And there were no bricks or mortar in the price of this particular item.
In fact, what Mr Shay was about to generously pay overs for, was something quite intangible: the Number One Club Lennox membership number.
Caught up in the excitement of the night, Michael ended up paying $1500 for the honour of being the Number One member of the newly formed Club Lennox.
In the price Michael gets 10 years membership and a very special place in Lennox Head history.
