The Crescent Head Country Club is currently holding an online auction in support of 17-year-old Hamish Cook and his family.
Hamish was seriously injured following an accident in the water at Crescent Head in January.
He was pulled from the water by his friends before paramedics were called to the scene at Little Nobby on January 13.
He was conscious when ambulance crews arrived and was winched to safety by the Westpac Rescue Helicopter before being transported to Sydney's Royal North Shore Hospital in a serious but stable condition.
Hamish has severe spinal damage which will likely see the 17-year-old wheelchair bound.
The Crescent Head Country Club and community have rallied together in support of the family, with fundraising events planned throughout the coming months.
A fundraising auction is currently underway, with all bids and donations going towards supporting the Cook family.
16 of the items featured in the auction are packages for holiday stays at Crescent Head, as well as two packages to the NRL 2021 Magic round in Brisbane.
Vouchers for local businesses are also included in the prizes.
Secretary Manager of the Crescent Head Country Club, Colan Ryan, said the auction is a way for a broader audience to get involved in the fundraiser.
"People are going to be holidaying in Australia for a while now due to COVID-19 and this is a way they can have a holiday in Crescent Head while also helping someone," he said.
"Crescent Head is a popular holiday destination and that's why these prizes are so great.
"The holiday stays in Crescent Head can be used by locals for corporate events or for family and friends that are coming to visit. There's a wide range of ways to utilise these auction prizes."
Colan said the club has been blown away by the community support and fundraising efforts over the past couple of months.
"The community spirit has been great and the staff here have been terrific in helping with the fundraising," he said.
"We're grateful for anyone who wants to help and it's very much appreciated.
"We would like to thank all of the businesses who donated prizes for the auction, it wouldn't have happened without them."
The getaway auction will end on March 28. To make a donation or to bid in the auction, head to the Cook Family Assist Getaway Auction website.
