The end result was a net profit of $3,687 which will be put towards our never ending list of things to do. We had some 120 attendees, which was down on last year, but the profits were very similar, thanks to our auction. The dollars were swollen by so called friends of Anne Warren & Stuart Jones trying to outbid them. Some friends, however this was a fundraising night & all entered into the spirit of it.
The auction raised $1,320 with the balance, $2,407, coming from door sales & raffle monies.
The winners on the night were Wes Taylor’s table, so obviously Wes not only has the head for radio, but is also clever. This was a close call with 3 teams tying for 1st . However Wes came up with the winning answer so congratulations. Joyce Mackenzie’s table which has won the previous 3 times was only 1 point behind. The Probus challenge this year was won in a tie breaker by Helensburgh Probus much to John Duckett’s delight, from Cronulla South & 1 point behind, Engadine Probus.
Thanks to all those who donated prizes & chips & the helpers on the night, as without their assistance it wouldn’t have run so smoothly.
