The days’ celebration was held at the Pacific Harbour Golf and Country Club. Di from Anna’s Fashion, and Fiona from Aussie Blokes Bribie Island, organised the fashion and models for the show. There were some amazing styles, with much thought put in and people with a disability wearing the clothes, such as models Fiona Donaldson and Tom Dutton.
Tom Dutton conducted an Auction, raising over $900 for a painting donated by Paul Constable-Calcott, titled “Post Polio Gathering”, a dreamtime theme of people coming together to celebrate. Paul is both an Aboriginal man and polio survivor. Other auction items included: Broken River Mountain Resort accommodation; Bribie Island BBQ Boat hire; a camping pack donated by GC Benji; and a doTERRA essential oil package from Lyn and Peter Guerin.
Community Radio Caboolture also supported the day, and Shane Kells (Kelsy) “One Voice” provided the music entertainment. Bill reported that the room was filled with laughter and happiness.
Polio Australia wholeheartedly thanks Bill and his team, Anne and the Rotary Club of Bribie Island, and everyone else who contributed to the day. All funds raised will be used to develop and deliver Polio Australia’s programs to support polio survivors.
