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!
And thanks, too, to the other bidders who kept the interest levels high!
