A Huge Success!
Our Meet the Makers event held on Saturday 12 August was a great success! The Paul Keane Gymnasium was unrecognisable, completely transformed by many senior girls and parents into a colourful street-market theme, with market stalls, gazebos, umbrellas, fairy lights, foliage and of course our wineries, brewer and food exhibitors. John Campbell and Luca Montagni kept the guests entertained, while Dayle Barnes led the auctions.
We were lucky enough to sell 350 tickets to the event, and also managed to sell all of our fantastic auction prizes, with one lucky person off to Rarotonga to stay at the Pacific Resort. The amount raised this year was well over $45,000, which is a fantastic outcome as all funds are targeted towards the opening of the new Mother Bernard Towers Science Centre.
Thank you to the many volunteers who helped make this event a success, and also a special thank you to our generous sponsors and exhibitors. We look forward to seeing you all again at our next Meet the Makers.
