Balcony Bar's great support



What do you get when you mix a fantastic small bar in the city, a passionate group of volunteer workers, a talented band and 100 young people looking for a great night out and wanting to support a worthy cause?

Answer:  The Butterfly Opens hosted by the Balcony Bar which was held on 24th March 2012.

With stylish décor and a relaxed theme, Balcony Bar in Erskine Street is the perfect venue for intimate gatherings, functions and events. Spread over three floors, Balcony Bar gives you everything you want in a sophisticated, stylish setting. Enjoy a fine Australian wine, beer or cocktail with friends while tantalising your taste buds over the modern Australian cuisine.

Trish Foundation volunteers and wonderful supporters Cindy Dock, Bree Calderwood, Board member Sue Woodward and John Ganderton joined with the Balcony Bar’s Troy and Susannah McDonald to conduct this special fundraiser for the Trish Foundation.

The 100 young supporters who attended the event were entertained by the terrific music of Neon Cove and enjoyed a sensational evening, $9,122 being raised for MS research.

Professional Master of Ceremonies Bill Gilbert, who has been with the Foundation since inception, managed the evening perfectly and also doubled as Auctioneer.

“The night was a great success.  Everyone I spoke to really enjoyed themselves,” said one of the organisers John Ganderton.

“We are really grateful to Cindy, Bree, Sue, John, Troy and Susannah for their awesome support,” said Foundation Chairman Carol Langsford.  “They really have perfected the art of putting the fun into fundraising.”
