VOCAL's 30th Birthday Fundraising Dinner, November 2019

A huge should out to everyone involved with last nights celebrations! The night would not have been possible without the work of our PR superwoman Tracey Thompson.

Juliana was a great MC, Guest speakers were Peta Blood from DCJ , Lake Mac Superintendent Danny Sullivan gave a powerful speech, survivor Kylie showed her strength and Kerrie spoke on behalf of her amazing staff.

Marissa Saroca and her band rocked the dance floor and some lucky people went home with fantastic prizes.

We are already getting asked if we are doing another fundraising dinner next year… watch this space!
