Show ball is setting scene
THE Toogoolawah Show Society hosted the Toogoolawah Miss Show Girl competition at their annual ball on Saturday night.
Judging took place at Orleigh Park, hosted by Ken and Helen Lodge, followed by evening presentations in the pavilion at the Toogoolawah Show Grounds.
The pavilion was beautifully decorated with the help of Bebe and Matt Swaddling from Bebe’s Country Weddings and Sarah from Your Somerset Florist.
Special guests of the evening were the masters of ceremonies, Luke and Cody Cook, winners of Channel 7’s House Rules. They kept the crowd entertained and the committee was delighted that the country lads were able to officiate the evening.
A fabulous meal was prepared by Something For Catering, and the proceedings then moved straight onto judging. The Show Girl entrants were Alannah Slade and Emily Granzien. The judges, Ben and Megan Drynan and Emma Milne, said the girls did an excellent job and would both make wonderful representatives for the Show Society.
Outgoing 2017 Miss Show Girl winner, Jessica Salotti, gave her handover speech and interviewed the girls on stage.
“Overall, I have had the time of my life, making lifelong friends and networking with some wonderful people, so I would like to say a huge thank you to the show society for this amazing experience,” Ms Salotti said.
The winner and runner up of the Toogoolawah Miss Show Girl were announced. Congratulations goes to the winner, Alannah Slade, and runner-up, Emily Granzien. The Show Society is very pleased to have Alannah represent them at the upcoming regionals and wish her every success.
After the formalities of the evening were over, music by South West kicked in and everyone was up on the dance floor.
“What a fabulous night,” said show ball co-ordinator Paris Granzien.
“Cody and Luke brought such a hype to the night and they did an amazing job of keeping the night rolling along and the laughs rolling in.
“Tonight has really set up such a great atmosphere for the upcoming show.”
