It was a great night of Music and we enjoyed a beautiful 3 Course Dinner and heard the vision for the future.
Thanks to West Tradies Club, Blacktown City Council, Blacktown Lions Club, Mr Minute, Easy Go Connect , Shalvey Pharmacy and 90 other friends of the choir...
We raised $6000 for the future programs.
Here was a great event to do some fundraising for one good day that leads to another. On one great night, we invited some friends and community leaders to invest in an amazing social capital and assets for our future. We heard from the Choir and some Musical friends from Sydney, There was a mix of people from our 50 events in the last year to have a great auction and see the programs go from strength to strength. Also a percentage of the nights takings went go towards our Relay for Life Cancer Council Team for Blacktown.
