In my last post, I lamented having forgotten to take my camera to the Theodore Chamber of Commerce Colourful Communities Dinner. Well, Liz, one of the purchasers of my artwork on the night, had hers, and kindly sent me these photos to share with you. (Thanks so much Liz!). Bit of a pity I closed my eyes at the crucial moment though!
Here are the gentlemen in action... Murray- the auctioneer, Doug - the 'spotter', and on the stage behind them, Keith, who was the winning bidder on my artwork (and also happens to be married to Liz).
Keith is holding up a Wallabies* jersey, signed by this years Wallabies side, one of whom is young man named Robert Simmons who hails from Theodore and has had his first run on game with the team this year. Thanks to each and every one of the gents pictured here, the Chamber raised a lovely amount of money to put toward their tireless efforts to support the development of a vital and exciting community. I am so very lucky to live in such a wonderful place, surrounded by some of the greatest people on earth!
*For those of you unfamiliar with the Wallabies...they are the Australian Rugby Union Team, and Robert is a youthful 21 years old!
