It quickly became evident from the fun, laughter and friendships that it was going to be a fabulous event.

Special guest presenters Lauren DeCesare and Hayley Pearson from Adelady Channel 9 and Bernard Booth Real Estate identity from Adelaide all participated to make it indeed a very successful day.

Almost $12,000 was raised for the cause and 35 very generous donations were made by business traders from Port Elliot, Victor Harbor and Goolwa.
