Variety Fundraising Evening
What a wonderful evening was had on Tuesday the 1st October in the Ballroom at Workers Blacktown.
Aprox. 125 people enjoyed themselves with fundraising through Raffles and a Silent Auction. The audience included the entire Workers Blacktown Board, members from Holroyd, Granville Rotary clubs as well as members from Prospect Probus club, plus family and friends.
Entertainment was provided by Roland Storm along with Celine Pasqual and Jared Fraser, even the odd couple of songs by Mel.
Approximately $9,000 was raised on the evening and more than $4,000 netted over the course of the night after dinner and associated expenses, which is to go towards a Phototherapy machine for Blacktown Hospital Neo-Natal unit, and the balance to the Forbes District in Drought Relief.
As an aside, Yes we were successful in receiving the District Grant to go towards the Phototherapy machine, which we hope to have in the hospital before Christmas.
The Forbes trip has now been completed and a report can be seen on an adjoining page.
On behalf of the Board and members, our sincerest thanks to all concerned for your generosity and compassion.
