A special thank you to the very talented Jake Meadows who entertained guests with his signature sound – a fusion of the harp and electronic music. Thank you also to 'Sweet and Gav', musicians Kelly Sweet and Gavin Rimmer, who performed pro-bono and really got the room on their toes. A heartfelt thank you to Kath McKenzie who was our wonderful MC and to auctioneer Michael Hawkins who once again whipped the crowd into a bidding frenzy.
Cheers also to Sean Hannah and Michael Stevens, from Green Kitchens & Joinery who were this year's event sponsor, and to committee member Samantha Waller for this introduction. Thank you to our seafood sponsor Cummins Seafood and to the wonderful Jan Cummins, who generously donated oysters and prawns for our champagne and oyster bar.
Special mention to our creatives Donna from Donna Bella Design, Julie Steele and Sam Waller for their props, artworks and styling flair. We loved the selection of tropical fruits donated by Kym and Adrian Hall from Nectar Cold Pressed.
And last but certainly not least, thank you to our wonderful committee (Stacey Clancy, Brooke Cummins, Sarah Galway, Emma Kirkman, Ingrid Maack, Samantha Waller, Julie Steele and Kelly Sweet) who have worked tirelessly for months to stage this event.
