I would like to start by saying THANK YOU because, without our club members, events like this would not be possible. More than 50 cars (mostly Mustangs and from every decade) made their way into Bonython Park from early morning. The coffee van provided us with enough caffeine to get us through the day and even the BBQ was set and ready to fire up for brekkie! We were delighted to have the opportunity to look over a striking new 2015 Mustang Convertible in the car park. Other modern Mustangs included a 2007 Shelby and a Saleen.
For a gold coin donation club members and guests were served a breakfast of bacon, eggs, sausages and juice. With proceeds going to The Cancer Council, many members kindly donated that little bit extra so a special ‘thank you’ goes to you.
Once breakfast was over, our President welcomed new members Pam and Tas McEwin to MOTM. Then, with the formalities aside, it was onto business…the Auction! With all proceeds going to The Cancer Council it was certainly the highlight of the day. Items up for auction were a selection of number plates from the USA, a book on Mustangs, a 2016 Mustang calendar, a car care kit, MOTM caps signed by Alan Moffat and a custom made Mustang coat rack.
And an even bigger thank you to those successful bidders for paying on time. You made the Treasurer very happy!! It was a hugely successful day with more than $1,100 raised for our charity of choice, The Cancer Council. Following the auction, run sheets were distributed and some ‘Stangs headed for Largs North (and ice cream!).
Anyone who’s attended our Australia Day Breakfast would appreciate the amount of work that goes into making the day a success. So once again a huge thank you to all the volunteers who helped make it happen.
Thank you also to our wonderful sponsor, Woolworths.
We’re all looking forward to Australia Day 2017! PS Planning is already under way to ensure everyone ‘takes home the bacon’ next year.
