Sun­rise star to host big event

Coun­cil snares Ed­wina Bartholome­w

Gatton Star - - NEWS -

SHE greets Aus­tralia every morn­ing with a smile and Lock­yer Val­ley Re­gional Coun­cil is proud to an­nounce Ed­wina Bartholome­w as the MC for this year’s Lock­yer Val­ley Busi­ness, Train­ing and Ap­pren­tice­ship Awards.

A ta­lented re­porter and pre­sen­ter on Aus­tralia’s lead­ing break­fast show Sun­rise, Ed­wina has more than a decade of ex­pe­ri­ence in tele­vi­sion and ra­dio news un­der her belt.

Lock­yer Val­ley Mayor Tanya Mil­li­gan said coun­cil was de­lighted to wel­come one the coun­try’s most recog­nised faces to help show­case the ac­com­plish­ments of Lock­yer Val­ley busi­nesses.

“Ed­wina’s bright and bub­bly per­son­al­ity will surely ben­e­fit this year’s cel­e­bra­tion of lo­cal busi­nesses, trainees, ap­pren­tices, su­per­vi­sors/man­agers and em­ploy­ees,” Cr Mil­li­gan said.

From in­ter­view­ing in­ter­na­tional celebri­ties like Chris Hemsworth to ab­seil­ing off a 33-storey build­ing live on air, she will have no short­age of sto­ries to share dur­ing the awards.

“Her pas­sion for con­nect­ing with peo­ple from all walks of life and the ar­tic­u­late way she speaks are a tes­ta­ment to Ed­wina’s years of jour­nal­is­tic ex­pe­ri­ence,” Cr Mil­li­gan said.

The awards gala din­ner will be held at the Gat­ton Shire Hall on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 20 as a way to show­case the in­cred­i­ble depth of ta­lent within the re­gion.

Tick­ets are $110 a per­son and avail­able from Thurs­day by calling coun­cil’s Re­gional De­vel­op­ment Team on 5466 3505.

Ed­wina’s bright and bub­bly per­son­al­ity will surely ben­e­fit this year’s cel­e­bra­tion.
