REPORT

At last, 3 years later, we had a beautiful sunny day for this Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service fundraiser, disguised as a celebration of St Patricks Day!

It may have been one of our more successful St Pats Day with an estimated 100 people - residents, friends, passers/by - enjoying the weather, sausage sambos, live entertainment and a beverage or two.

The day was finished off with a large and successful auctioning of some donated Sydney Olymics 2000 road signage, and a raffle prize table groaning under the weight of a hamper and a significant number of donated prizes.

A surprise donation of $500 to the Westpac helicopter was made by members of the two local fishing clubs "headquartered" at Ettalong Hotel and Ettalong War Memorial Club.

The final amount raised for this essential ervice is not know as yet, but a rough figure at the end of the day was around the $5000 mark.

The day was a huge success for all attending and the helicopter service, but a little too successful for the beverage supply that rapidly decreased too quickly in quantity - but we all made do!
