An outstanding success


Thanks to the 200-plus guests who attended the pre-loved fashion auction hosted by Sandstone Point Lions, raising $4500 which is to be donated to Lions Prostate Cancer Research.

The pre-loved fashion auction was the brainchild of Lion Wendy Rollason, who thought an event like this would not only assist with recycling pre-loved clothes and accessories, but also provide an afternoon of fun and frivolity.

“This was the third time the event has been held and it is becoming extremely popular. This year was a sell out,” Wendy said.

On the day, ladies were welcomed with a numbered paddle for the auction, a glass of bubbly and a chocolate. Raffle tickets were sold and our MC Lion Jenny, whose quick wit had the audience enjoying a good laugh, auctioned whole outfits including the accessories.

During a break, where we enjoyed a cuppa with tasty scones, Lion Wendy drew lucky entry ticket numbers and gave away 30 surprise jewellery bags.

Once all the outfits had been auctioned and raffles drawn, racks full of clothes were brought out and sold for $2 per item - this is when all guests grabbed a great bargain.

The success of this event is attributed to many - thanks to the scone makers, the ladies in the kitchen, the ladies selling raffle tickets, the greeters, the bubbly and chocolate givers, the dressers behind the scenes and especially the models, who were not Lions members but chosen from the Anglican Church, Bongaree Bowls Club, the Chaplaincy and Gem Life. A big thanks also goes to Lion Jenny, the MC, who has done a wonderful job over the last three years.

And we can’t forget the men who set up the tables and chairs under the tight supervision of the ladies, of course!

Thanks to Sandstone Point Lions, for your time and effort in making this a successful fund raiser for Lions Prostate Cancer Research. And last, but not least, a very special thank you to the Bribie Island community who supported our cause.

See you all again next year!
