Pilbara News - - Lifestyle - Ali­cia Perera

The last Kar­ratha and Dis­tricts Cham­ber of Commerce and In­dus­try Busi­ness Af­ter Hours event of the year proved to be full of sur­prises.

The crowd of about 150 lo­cal busi­ness peo­ple met to take ad­van­tage of their last chance to net­work be­fore the Christ­mas break be­gins.

The night was bro­ken into two parts, start­ing with Wood­side Kar­ratha Gas Plant as­set man­ager Steve Trench sur­pris­ing Smith Fam­ily Kar­ratha on Wood­side’s be­half with $1000 worth of toys and books for its Christ­mas ap­peal.

An­other sur­prise for the guests was the pres­ence of Wood­side chief ex­ec­u­tive Paul Coleman and Fre­man­tle Dock­ers foot­baller Matthew Pavlich.

Mr Coleman gave a speech about the re­silience Pil­bara peo­ple had shown over a year of dif­fi­cult eco­nomic times, while Pavlich spoke about call­ing on re­silience while play­ing with the Dock­ers.

The KDCCI gave out Christ­mas ham­pers to lucky guests be­fore it was back to net­work­ing.
