WHITSUNDAY dudes and dudettes were in fine form on Friday night at the Logan’s Adventure Playground ’80s night at Anchor Bar.
The Anchor Bar was transformed into an array of fluro, wigs and fishnets with costumes from the band Kissand movies Flash Danceand Back to the Future all on display.
After all costs, a total of $6286 was raised from the night.
Project co-ordinator and event organiser Kellie Chart was pleased everyone had a good night.
She said the committee was already brain storming for future fundriasers and would love to know what events Whitsunday residents were interested in attending.
“If people have something they think would work well and they would go to, just let us know. We love doing something a little bit unique like the slave auction and it’s great if we can bring the community something they want to go in addition to raising lots of money. It’s good for everyone in the long run” she said. The Anchor Bar put on a stella show with its picturesque view and divine platters.
“It was a massive team effort and we had so much fun organising it – they were the very best venue for the occassion,” Ms Chart said.
Whitsunday MP Jason Costigan, Member for Dawson George Christensen and Ray White Whitsunday principal Mark Beale were all up for grabs at the slave/celebrity auction on the night.
Mr Christensen went for $205 and Mr Costigan $200 while Mr Beale topped the cake with a bid of $450.
