Merimbula or Bust…

11 07 2010

The Gang attended the Merimbula Special Events Committee’s gala cocktail evening and auction – Bust Out Merimbula – a week and a bit ago for an evening of slap, tickle and serious fun, and all for a very good cause. What a great way to raise funds for breast cancer research. (Whoever came up with the concept is a legend.) 

There were lots that tickled our fancy…

…and some seriously cool numbers…

…lots of familiar faces in the crowd…

…and seemingly ceaseless hospitality.

Congratulations to Brenda Edbrooke and her hard working committee for an enjoyably successful night. We hear that everyone’s already beavering away on next year’s fanciful line-up.

We’ll leave you with our fave…





Bega or bust…

Bust out Merimbula came to Bega this week with a mini-exhibition of the many delights in store when the Merimbula Special Events Committee hold their breast cancer research fundraiser at Twyford Hall next month (Thursday July 1st.)

Twenty local artists and some 70 members of the public have given pre-fabbed torsos a creative make-over – all to be auctioned at a gala cocktail evening. Very cute idea for a very important cause.

Several of the ‘busts’  now grace the foyer vitrines at the Regional Gallery, as a promotional lead-up to what clearly promises to be a truly titillating event.
