Fa­mil­iar faces en­joy fun party

Pilbara News - - News - Court­ney Fowler

More than 500 Pil­bara par­ty­go­ers en­joyed an af­ter­noon of live mu­sic, drinks and food in the sun at the highly an­tic­i­pated Kar­ratha Apex Gar­den Party on Satur­day.

The sell-out event has long been pop­u­lar among lo­cals, who donned an im­pres­sive dis­play of cos­tumes vary­ing from cir­cus per­form­ers and bar­maids to fa­mil­iar char­ac­ters such as Bat­man and the Mario Broth­ers.

Best-dressed awards went to “the geri­atrics”, “the skele­ton boys” and the Joker’s side­kick Har­ley Quinn.

Event or­gan­iser Gil McComb said the event had a long tra­di­tion in Kar­ratha, and had been handed over to the Apex Club of Kar­ratha in 2006.

“The theme started as a 1900s gar­den tea party and has evolved into an any­thing-goes fancy dress party,” he said.

Mr McComb said ev­ery dol­lar raised would be dis­trib­uted back into the lo­cal com­mu­nity by the Apex Club of Kar­ratha.

He thanked all the vol­un­teers and lo­cal busi­nesses whose sup­port made the event pos­si­ble.

A fundrais­ing to­tal is ex­pected to be an­nounced in the com­ing weeks.
