Flower Power at this year’s WWW

The East Grampians Health Service celebrated another successful Women, Wisdom and Wellbeing Dinner on the 26th July, this year. The dinner raised close to $10,000 from the fundraising efforts on the night.

The night had a fancy dress 60’s theme and there were costumes from the flower power girls to swanky hipsters. The evening remembered how cool it was to be back in the 60s with the peace movement, the music, mind-altering explorations and all the hippies. All who attended on the night made it a huge success.

The highlight of the night was the two hippies who performed some great renditions of the early 60’s music, singing songs such as “Mrs. Robinson to California Dreaming, Max Perovich and Jim Kilpatrick gave a cult view of what were some of the standout songs of the 60’s were all about.

Then there was John McDougall (alias dame Elizabeth) who sung along and supported the long lost souls of yester year (the survivor’s), keeping everyone entertained with his/her antics. Ruth & Zigi from the band S.O.F.T had everyone entertained for the rest of the night, with the crowd dancing all night long.

East Grampians Health Service Auxiliary President Mrs. Margie Kilpatrick said “We had another great success this year with the WWW Dinner and it was well supported by our local businesses. Everyone who attended went to a lot of trouble to dress up for the theme of the night, it was so much fun. The ladies Auxiliary was so happy to have raised so much money for the Urgent Care beds at EGHS.”
