Fundraising Evening for the World Champs

May 21, 2010 0 Comments

Well! Didn’t we have the ultimate 60s evening!

“What’s a 60’s evening?”

The best fun, music and dance experience the members of the Australian Footbike Team have experienced in ages!

60s Party FunThe night was filled with people from all walks of life and ages who came along to help raise funds to send the Australian Footbike Team to the World Champs in Italy. They also came along to sing and dance to 60’s songs fantastically presented by Robbie McGowan, or as he’s better known ‘That 60’s Guy’. Robbie played his guitar and sang, song after song, classic tunes from the 60’s including ‘Ferry Cross the Mersey’ through to ‘Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head’ and ‘House of the Rising Sun’.

The floor vibrated with feet extolling their enjoyment with the entertainment. Robbie’s great voice and welcoming warmth was perfectly balanced with his wicked sense of humour that had us grinning and shouting encouragement throughout the night.

Huge thanks to Jo, Hass and Ali for organising the night, and The Pet Resort for gift vouchers, Red Day Coaching for the wine and chocolate package, That 60’s Guy for tickets to future shows, Kickbike Australia for the Wine, Jem Glass for their generous donations, and Kerrie Lathopolous for her amazing Kickbike Cake (check out the photo). And special thanks to all of the people who attended the night!

Not only did the evening present people with wonderful entertainment, delicious food, and fine comany, it gave the Australian Footbike Team the opportunity to interact together in a non-sporting environment, building an even stronger team for Italy.
