The Ladies Shopping Night was a great success according to the feedback we received from most who attended. We raised $5,000 towards the new playground.
The drinks on arrival went down well and the tea shop was full of homemade goodies. The three demonstrations run by Leza Marfell, Susan Assadi and Annemarie Dunlop were well supported, and provided lots of discussion. The lucky envelopes and raffles had lots of support. There was a lot of last minute bidding on the silent auction that provided extra entertainment.
Thank you to Gary from Clockwork Gold Bar who without him we could not have got a liquor licence for the event. For Marty Ritchie from Harcourts our great MC and sponsor for our signage.
