Hats on and funds raised

The Tatura Guardian - - News -

The rac­ing theme was heard loud and clear at the Ro­tary Club of Tatura’s an­nual Hat Night to raise funds for Aus­tralian Ro­tary Health.

More than 60 peo­ple at­tended the event at Tatura Bocce Club on Derby Day night, en­joy­ing a three­course meal and dress­ing to the nines.

‘‘To say the night had a rac­ing theme, would not be an ex­ag­ger­a­tion with ap­prox­i­mately $1500 raised on the night, a great ef­fort by the club,’’ in­com­ing club pres­i­dent Bill Purcell said.

The club paid spe­cial thanks to the ma­jor spon­sors for the night, Peter Kennedy Land­scap­ing and Ja­cob­sons Coach Tours and also Deb­bie and Lou Worm for their suc­cess­ful third year.

‘‘The Tatura Ro­tary Club would like to thank all those who at­tended and made it so suc­cess­ful,’’ Mr Purcell said.

Ro­tary pres­i­dent Rod Schu­bert ran the auc­tion with much hu­mor and ex­tracted the much-needed funds, fol­lowed by the an­nounce­ment of race win­ners and the win­ner of the ‘‘pres­ti­gious’’ Tatura Cup — the Peter Sch­warz Syn­di­cate.

‘‘In the heav­ily con­tested best hat com­pe­ti­tion, Doug Tuhan took out first prize for the gents and Ce­cilia Fasano won the ladies,’’ Mr Purcell said.

‘‘We look for­ward to next year’s event be­ing even big­ger and bet­ter.’’

All smiles: Spon­sors Lou Worm and Peter Sch­warz get to­gether with smiles in tow.

Best hat win­ners: Doug Tuhan, Jo Burgess and Ce­cila Fasano.

Funny: Rod Schu­bert ran the auc­tion with much hu­mor.
