It is not often that slugs are held in high esteem, but when they are 'Southern Slugs' it is a very different story.

The Southern Slugs, who are an Aussie Rules football team who enter Masters tournaments and tour the world, are ardent fundraisers with many organisations benefitting from their gala events.

This year the Slugs have decided proceeds from their latest event and auction will support the rebuilding of lives, homes, and business on Kangaroo Island.

Acts such as John 'Swanee' Swan and Rumours - The Fleetwood Mac Show will grace the stage as well as comedians, a magician and even a juggler.

The auction will include items such as two-nights accommodation at the Sea Dragon Lodge and Villas and a Ron Barassi signed Melbourne Football Club guernsey and other memorabilia.

The Southern Slugs Variety Gala fundraiser will be held on Saturday, June 12, at the Adelaide Irish Club, 13-15 Carrington St, in Adelaide.
