Night under the stars
■ Karratha hosted its own version of the Long Table Lunch breast cancer fundraiser last Saturday night when more than 70 people gathered in the Karratha Leisureplex’s main function room for a “Serata Sotto Le Stelle”, or Evening Under The Stars.
The event is in its second year, with all funds going to Breast Cancer Care WA, a charity that provides practical, financial, and emotional support to people affected by the disease.
Guests enjoyed a three-course Italian meal provided by Onyx Cafe in a room decorated with the colours of the Italian flag and plenty of fairy lights.
More than 30 Karratha small businesses contributed to the silent auction, raising more than $7000.
Annabelle Little and Gil McComb won best-dressed and Glen Carter won best purple accessory.
Highlights included MC Steve Cook reading a personalised poem in honour of the event and Cathy Tobin and Kym Shepherdson performing a song for breast cancer sufferers.
