Meeting every Tuesday in daylight saving time, then fortnightly 6.30pm Royal Victorian Motor Yacht Club

Beacon 25th September 2012

No one can say that the Gellibabies are set in their ways after today!! 

Not only did we meet EARLY in the morning but we also had a fabulous time with out Pink Ribbon Breakfast and the some 150 happy souls who were also with us from 7-00 am helping raise funds for Breast Cancer Research. 

We had the glitterati of local and district Rotary with us as well as many families and friends from our local area.  

Our MC for the morning was local identity Patsy Toop OAM, lawyer, musician, wife and supporter of community causes who set down her guitar and pen to keep things moving a pace; quite a feat in the RVMYC since space was at a premium with a near capacity female dominated crowd. 

Our guest speaker was none other than Western Bulldogs director Susan Alberti AO who after everyone had a sumptuous breakfast spoke about her commitment to health research following the loss of a daughter to juvenile diabetes.

We had door prizes, raffles and a silent auction that swelled the fundraising well beyond last year’s achievements and judging by the hum of conversation it’s fair to say that the camaraderie was heightened once again.
