On Friday, 23 August the beautiful Breakfast Point Community Hall was transformed into an art gallery showcasing works from the local community’s creative talent. Members of the Breakfast Point Rotary Club worked hard to prepare and present stunning landscapes, portraits and photographs to raise money for several worthy causes.
The evening was enhanced by a string quartet while the champagne flowed. Opening night guests were also treated to an exclusive performance by Sina Samuels opera singer whose rendition of Time to Say Goodbye left the audience speechless. However the highlight of the event had to be when Mark Burns, the Club’s President handed over a cheque for the impressive sum of $10,000 to Dr John Cullen, Head of Geriatric Medicine/Aged Care and Alice Kang, Director Marketing and Community Relations of Concord Hospital to assist in the construction of a gymnasium for the elderly.
In its 5th year the art exhibition and sale is now presenting over 100 works of artistic endeavour. An event like this by the Rotary Club not only encourages artists to sell their works but also offers support to the wider community with donations to local schools, Concord Hospital and disaster support. Other organisations that have benefitted from the Rotary Club of Breakfast Point include the Shelterbox project and the Polio Now project.
