Last year, when I eventually decided on a local character to paint for the Artyball, I picked someone I didn’t know, Yvonne ‘the walking lady’ – and this year I now count her as a friend, which got me thinking about .. friends.
I am lucky to say I have great supportive friends. So this year I have decided on one from my loved circle of friends, Julie Davidson, as my local character.
Julie always welcomes me into her home. We are passionate about our families and she serves our tea in good china…,just because.
Simple things, but you know, to have someone at times who just rings you out the blue, always happy for you is just … well, damn perfect.
So this year when you decide who your character is to draw, paint, sew, design, it could just be your mate, a friend that has shared stuff with you.
ArtyBall 2019, we hope, will be another resounding success and Kroppy is helping us put it all together at the Sports Club.
Book a table, maybe for your staff Christmas breakup or come and get to know other locals, have some fun and remember to bid at the auction.
All proceeds will go back to the community so you, the local community, can reap the rewards.
To submit your artwork or for further information please contact Leonie on 0407 529 624.
Tickets for the ball are at trybooking.com/BFRZF and only cost $35 per person which includes canapes, licenced bar and live band!
