Din­ner fundrais­ing ef­fort shows true sports­man­ship

Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY -

THE Ball or Noth­ing Sports­man’s Din­ner showed the com­mu­nity spirit that the Whit­sun­days is known for as about 70 peo­ple gath­ered to­gether to put their money to­wards Lo­gan’s Adventure Play­ground.

A high­light of the din­ner was spe­cial guest Mark Geyer, who took time to hang out with ev­ery­one at the bar af­ter his emo­tional speech.

Af­ter all costs, the night raised more than $4000.

Or­gan­iser Michelle Tat­ter­son said although it was a long haul to pro­mote the event, the com­mu­nity came to­gether in the end.

“(I) would like to thank ev­ery­one who was in­volved some way or an­other mak­ing the night such a suc­cess. We had a fan­tas­tic and mixed crowd of peo­ple, and Mark Geyer re­ally worked the crowd,” she said.

Lo­gan’s Adventure Play­ground is still host­ing its Ama­teurChef se­ries, a home fundraiser where peo­ple host their own din­ners with a theme and go in the draw to din­ner at Tides Restau­rant.

All funds go to­wards the sec­ond ex­cit­ing ad­di­tion to the play­ground. A Saturn Carousel and a fort will hope­fully be built dur­ing win­ter.
