The recent frock up for Francis Cocktail arty was a fabulous example of 'how to have fun and make friends' while raising much needed funds for the restoration for SFX Cathedral.
One hundresd and thury 'frocked up' and friendly people were welcomesd to the beaitifully decorated Catholic Centre by Bernard Brown, the Project Chairman, to witness the Car Raffle Draw and were also treated to a great phantom race call and a very exciting auction of two signed Football Guernseys featuring past students of St Pats College and Nagle Catholic College who have gone on to play AFL.
Clearly people were there to celebrate and support the cause! The MC for the inight was Peter Fiorenza and the car raffle draw was very exciting with the winner's name being drawn out by Zane Clarke from Geraldton Toyota to a hushed crowd. Congratulations to Mr John Nolan of Rangeway who is now the proud owner of a brand new Rav 4!
The music was wonderfull throughout the evening, supplied by some extremely talented students from Nagle College, and the delicous food was also served by Nagle students. Jackie Connelly and her band of helpers ran the bar and the evening.
The centre piece of the night was a 'musical comedy' performance from Bishop Justin and Fr Gerard with the backing of Carol Quill... Most entertaining and very funny!
A very special thank you to all who came along, to those who helped in so many ways, and congratulations to rachael Gardiner and Jane Rowe for organising an outstanding event. Over $7000 was raised on the night and the Car Raffle raised over $68,000.
