2016 Family Christmas Party

This years Family Christmas Party was held on Saturday the 3rd December 2016 and once again the fantastic Thebarton Community Centre was the venue.  Unlike last year the weather was perfect for the 140 clients, family members, carers, volunteers and supporters to come and enjoy a delicious lunch amongst friends.  Live music by the incredible sounds of Dave Freeman and Reason was much enjoyed and a huge thanks to them as they donated their time and talent.  Face painting was once again supplied by the super creative Sarah Cotis and fun Christmas themed games were enjoyed by young and old.  Muscular Dystrophy was once again very excited that Santa could squeeze a visit to us to give each child a gift which certainly created huge happy faces. Everyone who attended has given our Client Services Team amazing positive feedback and they are already looking forward to next’s years event.  A BIG thanks must go out the businesses who supported the event and to our very valuable volunteers who once again gave up their Saturday’s to be at the party, we could not do it without you.  Spring Fresh and Prices Fresh dontated produce which makes a huge difference to our expenses.  Again a special thanks to the Bow Tie Bears Volunteer Events Committee who raised funds to financially contribute to this wonderful event.

The event was held at the fantastic Thebarton Community Centre to accommodate for the 130 clients, families, carers and supporters who attended despite the 40 degree weather! A delicious Christmas Lunch was provided with scrumptious desserts. The day could only get better with live acoustic music provided by Aria Acoustic, face painting by Sarah Cotis Face Painting and prize winning games that got everyone involved!

The Client Services Team received incredibly positive feedback and has already begun planning for a bigger and better family Christmas Party next year! A big thank you to businesses who supported the event and volunteers who gave up their Saturday to help out, we could not have done it without you!  Prices Fresh Bakery, Baiada and Western Hospital donated goods which saved on cost, so a huge thanks.  A special thank you to the Bow Tie Bears Volunteer Events Committee, who raised funds to financially contribute to this wonderful family event.
