Plough Hotel/CTS Fund-raiser for West Welcome Wagon
Plough Hotel, 333 Barkly St, Footscray.
Tuesday, October 7, from 7-9pm.
Many, many thanks to everyone involved for making this such an enjoyable and worthy night.
Through a mix of ticket sales and our auction we all helped raise a handy figure of cash money to help West Welcome Wagon continue its amazing work.
Our friendly, terrific crowd included a number of CTS regulars and a bunch of WWW types – sometimes both at the same time!
I had hoped to have WWW founder Mia address our mob, but the situation was a tad too noisy for that.
Nevertheless, Mia seemed to spend some time with all our guests and I hope she and her friends enjoyed the night as much as I did.
The Plough staff were working very, very hard on what turned out to be a busy night but looked after us well.
The food – pizzas and a whole lot more – was truly fantastic.
I’d never run an auction before, and coming off a long day at my regular gig, I wasn’t sure I was up for it.
But it turned out to be a whole lot of fun!
So congratulation to Brigitte, who took home both the printer from Techville and the cookbook from the Sun Bookshop, and Amy who grabbed the lovely glassware from inviteme.
And thanks, too, to the other bidders who kept the interest levels high!
