Winner of the 2019 Artyball Prize, Leonie Guerin with her portrait titled ‘Julie” with the subject of the painting Julie Davidson.

Frocks, bling, suits and canapes mingled with prosecco and dancing to ensure the success of the 2019 Annual ArtyBall.

Congratulations to the winning entry which was painted by Leonie Geurin and titled ‘Julie’, a ‘portrait’ of her friend and local lady, Julie Davidson.

Real estate agent Andrew Hawkins was the energetic auctioneer and ensured bids were fast and furious resulting in over $1000 raised from the auction alone.

Jan Forbes piece titled ‘Bill ‘n Lizzie’ was the emotional favourite of the evening with a mystery buyer snapping up the artwork for $240.

The photoart entry featured Rainbow Shores resident Bill with his dog Lizzie and has been presented to Bill as a gift in memory of Lizzie who sadly passed away the week of the event.

The Recliners, with ex local Wolf Sievers on lead guitar, came from Toowoomba and thrilled the crowd with all the favourites ensuring the dance floor was always full.

Congratulations to everyone who stepped up and entered artwork for the competition or attended the annual event.

Well done to the Rainbow Beach Sports Club who were incredibly generous with their donation of the venue and staff and provided wonderful food, drink and service for the party goers.

A successful event and congratulations to Leonie Guerin for organising and hosting this wonderful event with all the money being given back to the community.
