On Saturday 17th April, our DBG Technologies team and friends attended the Foundation Daw Park 2010 ANZAC Commemoration Gala Ball at the Entertainment Centre with 450 other guests.
The evening had a Middle Eastern theme to recognise our soldiers currently fighting in the Middle East. The room was decorated with brightly coloured silks, lanterns on each table, harem girls and a camel welcoming guests, and a Middle Eastern inspired menu.
Hosted by Channel 9’s Brenton Ragless, the evening was both a celebration of the fantastic work done by Foundation Daw Park, and a moving tribute to the ANZACs.
One of the highlights of the evening was the Major Auction, with 9 wonderful lots that raised thousands of dollars in support of the Foundation. We put our hand up and purchased a state-of-the-art Scooter World Wheelchair which was donated back to the Repatriation Hospital for use in the Daw Park facility.
A great night was had by all – we can’t wait for the next instalment in 2011!
