Flashback Friday fun at ‘80s fundraiser

By Mark Beale

A FUNDRAISER and party with an ’80s theme and a celebrity slave auction is expected to be popular next week.

Whitsunday dudes and dudettes are invited to the Logan’s Adventure Playground ’80s night at Anchor Bar on Friday on October 3.

Not only will the event mark an era where perms ruled the streets and Wham ruled the airwaves but will be the official fundraiser for stage two of the playground.

’80s music will be provided by local band Tropic Temple while food from the era will also be supplied.

You are encouraged to dust off the hair crimper and dig out the Madonna costumes as there will also be awards for best dressed. Project co-ordinator and event organiser Kellie Chart said attendees could expect an evening of big fun and even bigger hair.

“It’s going to be a jam-packed fun night with hairspray, fluro, shoulder pads and leg-warmers with great food and even better music,” she said.

Ms Chart said the fundraiser would determine just how big stage two construction of the playground would be and ensure it happened before the end of the year.

Whitsunday MP Jason Costigan, Member for Dawson George Christensen and Ray White Whitsunday principal Mark Beale will be up for grabs at the slave/celebrity auction on the night.

Ms Chart encourages everyone to start thinking about what they would do with two-hours of these local identities’ precious time.

Mr Beale said volunteering to be part of the fundraiser was a no-brainer.

“Having kids myself, I have realised what an important fundraising event it is and how much the kids will enjoy somewhere to play.
