Masquerade Comedy & Music Evening
(Our 'big hit' Annual Fundraiser!)
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 22, 2022 AT 6 PM – 9 PM
Hawks Nest Community Hall
LAUGHTER and dancing filled the Hawks Nest Community Hall with over 100 fabulous, masked guests and volunteers enjoying the fundraiser of the year.
The hall sparkled with lights and decorations as well as lots of exotic plants provided by Woody’s Building and Garden centre.
Guests were greeted by the wonderful music of Ol’Spice, the ever-smiling musos John and Julian, as well as a free wine glass ready to be filled by our RSA wine bar volunteers, Bryony Barnes and Nicole O’Bryan.
MC John Hart warmed up the evening introducing Bulahdelah comedian, Greg Hayes, whose uncanny impressions of sporting personalities, politicians and songs got the locals in a party mood.
Irish Albert was the next act, combining legendary Irish humour with quirky impersonations of famous people, ensuring lots of laughs (who can forget those ears).
Intermission was prize time with the trophy for best mask going to long-time local couple Warwick and Ronnie Nichols.
The lucky door and raffle prizes included amazing photo canvases by Carl Brunton of Armchair Photography, and gift vouchers from Maxine Reid of Vitamin Bead and Coles, topped up with chocolates and wine donated by members of the HNTGPA – thank you.
In the kitchen, the Red Cross served up beautifully styled cheese and olive charcuterie platters and delicious cakes and slices.
The Lions Club cooked up yet another famous sausage sizzle which guests enjoyed in the Pink Room decorated with local native flowers from Kath Verdon and Jeanette Hart.
Bruce Murray, President, stated “A great fundraiser and a huge thank you to our locals who continue to support our community. It is great to see people getting out and having fun while raising money for the Lions, Red Cross and the Progress Association. I would like to acknowledge and thank the organising Sub Committee, Jeannette and John Hart, Kay and Barry Jones, Kath and John Verdon, Trevor Jennings, and Sandra Bourke as well as our Management Committee for their hard work.
