Friends bring in funds at flick

Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

IT WAS set to be a saucy girls' night out filled with love, laugh­ter and mas­quer­ades - all in the name of the char­ity.

How­ever, Lo­gan’s Adventure Play­ground, the fundrais­ing cause, never ex­pected to walk away with a whop­ping $4000 from a wine and cheese movie night held at the Proser­pine En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre on Satur­day.

The film of the evening was the much-an­tic­i­pated 50 Shades of Grey that had at­ten­dees gig­gling and squirm­ing in their seats – some caught up in the sheer ro­mance of it while oth­ers found it quite com­i­cal.

What was more en­joyed was the fab­u­lous com­pany and wine and cheese put on by the cen­tre and the char­ity.

Lo­gan’s Adventure Play­ground project co­or­di­na­tor Kel­lie Chart felt hum­bled to have a sig­nif­i­cant amount of com­mu­nity sup­port be­hind the cause on the night.

“[It’s] re­ally fan­tas­tic that the en­ter­tain­ment cen­tre gives com­mu­nity groups this great op­por­tu­nity to raise money plus all the other dona­tions we are so grate­ful for - giv­ing prizes away re­ally does add to the night,” she said.

“It was such a funny night, the at­mos­phere was elec­tric – peo­ple were re­ally look­ing for­ward to the night whether they were look­ing for­ward to the ac­tual film or not they knew they were in a for a good night.”

The Lo­gan’s Adventure Play­ground com­mit­tee are now full steam ahead and tak­ing reg­is­tra­tions for their Ama­teurChef se­ries.

The idea of the Ama­teurChef se­ries is that peo­ple cre­ate their own in­stant restau­rant at home where they charge a set amount or sim­ply ask for dona­tions and in­vite all of their friends. With two al­ready booked in and still plenty of spa­ces open for the month of March, Ms Chart an­tic­i­pates more com­mu­nity sup­port to­wards the cause.

“If you want to get Stage 2 of the play­ground started sooner rather than later then get in­volved – ev­ery lit­tle bit helps and you might win a fan­tas­tic din­ner at Tides,” she said.
