Benefit Dinner - Done !

The benefit dinner was a great success. There were around 70 people there who all enjoyed a wonderful buffet dinner with an amazing range of dishes, all donated by generous locals, Thank you so much. The highlight of the evening was a truly informative presentation by Professor Sharon Sullivan. Sharon has extensive knowledge of Angkor and the history of Cambodia and her talk was very professional and entertaining. It was still being mentioned at the markets the next day.
The entertainment was a great mixture of acapella by the 'Young' boys, folk stylings of John Spencer and Geoff Welham, topped off by another great performance from Phil Wakeling who had everyone dancing.
Thanks to so many wonderful people who helped on the night and everyone who attended the event....we raised $796.90. A special mention to a lovely man, Jim Knight from Kangaroo Creek. Jim had some trouble while driving to the hall and didnt make it but he called me the next day to apologise and donated $40.
