It was a night when the crimpers, the leopard spandex and the neon came out in full force. Griesbach’s annual playground fundraiser kicked it old school, with an 80’s theme that had the dance floor shaking under rays of laser light.
Spotted in the crowd were a few Madonnas, a handful of glam-rock headbangers, lotsa Valley Girls, Hulk Hogan, Rick Springfield, Olivia Newton John and an 80’s vintage tennis pro.
The fundraising team outdid itself with some incredible silent auction items. All 99 Red Balloons were popped until the winner of the weekend in Kimberley was revealed. We’re still working out the numbers, but it appears we managed to put another good dent in our fundraising objectives.
Thanks to everyone for joining us and supporting the cause. Especially those who went to the effort to dress up. A lot of work went into some of those costumes.
A big hand to all of the companies and individuals who donated items (we’ll print a complete list shortly) and to the organizing committee for their incredible attention to detail: Jen Horne, Felicia Dewar, Carl Knowler, Brad Tilley, Dave Neufeld, Milena Ferr, Chystal Norris, Stacy Felkar and Natalie Hanratty. (Hope I didn’t miss anyone).
The ideas are already flowing for next year’s theme.
