Report on the Casino Royale Night Fund Raiser by Helen Freeman
Oh What A Night!!
Hypnotising, mesmerising me......
This song is going around in my head!
Oh I got a funny feeling when I walked in the room.......
You would never guess passing through the small coastal settlement of Eucla what lies behind the sleepy facade. There are some ladies there who sure know how to throw a party! The “Casino Royale” cocktail night we held last July was such a resounding success that we decided to do it all again.
Who would have imagined, but this year it was even bigger and better. The wonder team had the hall decorated in no time at all and it was welcoming, sparkling and warm, attracting around 70 part-goers, plus a dozen children. We don't get many opportunities to dress up out this way so everyone made the most of it, getting into their finery and joining in the spirit of the evening.
Once again, the Little Wombats of the Nullarbor were raising money for our kids, to go towards the Isolated Children's Parents' Association and the Kalgoorlie School of the Air P&C, who are preparing to celebrate the school's 50th anniversary later this year. We almost doubled our fund raising efforts from last year. What an amazing effort from all who attended, as well as donations that came in from others who could not be there on the night.
In keeping with the theme of the casino night, guests played Blackjack and Crown and Anchor. Whoever held the highest amount of chips at the end of the night won prizes, such as a new TV or gift box of red wine. There were many chances to win also on the chocolate wheel. We had some great items to auction including a framed photograph from local junior prize-winning photographer, Jessica Norton, which raised over $700 and an autographed West Coast Eagles jersey which reached the staggering sum of $1600. Nothing wrong with a bit of friendly, neighbourly rivalry. There were also tickets to AFL finals and a beauty hamper that went under the hammer with auctioneer on the night, Jim Jess. Many thanks must go to the businesses and individuals who donated the amazing prizes.
The bar was busy selling tempting, colourful cocktails, beer, wine and spirits. There was plenty of delicious hot food on offer all night. Entertainment was provided with the wonderful musical talents of Miss Meg and the KalSOTA students also sang their school song for everyone. The children were happily occupied with playing out on the tennis court in between rain showers, and watching movies and playing games in their own specially decorated room. And how about the novelty of staying out until two in the morning! After midnight when the party games ended, there was still plenty of good times to be had on the dance floor. I think it is safe to say that all enjoyed the night and now are eagerly awaiting next year's event.
As I recall it ended much too soon......oh what a night.......
