Raise cups to a cure

Whitsunday Times - - COMMUNITY -

MEN’S SHED Air­lie Beach pres­i­dent Bob Bris­tow stood proud on Tues­day morn­ing as he looked over more than 102 lo­cals tucked in­side the Car­bon Store for the club’s big­gest morn­ing tea.

“The whole com­mu­nity event was about aware­ness and a lot of peo­ple have been touched by can­cer and wanted to do some­thing to give back to the cause,” he said.

An­gela and Steve Jan­icki from Choral C Voices hit the mics with Rhonda Camp­bell with songs from dated eras.

At­ten­dees were wel­comed to an ar­ray of food from sand­wiches sup­plied by the Reef Gate­way, scones cour­tesy of Or­ange Quote and beau­ti­ful sweets lov­ingly made from the wives of the Men’s Shed Air­lie Beach.

Mr Bris­tow said the auc­tion was spec­tac­u­lar. Em­ceed by PRD Whit­sun­day’s Brad Sobott, it raised more than $1500.

The day rose over $3000 for Can­cer Coun­cil with out­stand­ing dona­tions still to be counted.

Over­all Mr Bris­tow said it was a “great fun” day that was at­tended by sev­eral com­mu­nity groups in­clud­ing by the Probus and Zonta Clubs, Women of the Whit­sun­days and Bowen’s Men’s Shed.

HAT CRAZY: Iran Con­way, War­wick Green, Bob and Ni­cola Bris­tow, Lau­ren Haack, Ca­role Lind­say, Ker­rie Adam, Dawn Green, Mau­reen Con­way, Janet Keppke, PJ Hal­ter, Cath Fern­bach (back), Jo Kon­bloch, Faith and Juanita Lawn, Wendy Downes and He­len Evans (front) all donned their most out­ra­geous or fab­u­lous hats for the Big­gest Morn­ing Tea.
