Congratulations to everyone involved in last night’s successful ‘With a smile and a song’ event.  Over 100 people enjoyed watching and listening to the wonderful singing talents of Grace Arangio, Jessica-Monique Bojanjac, Sarah Cocks, Courteney Cooper, Zoe Crisp, Maya Fernandez, Morgan Halket, Lachie Higgins, Charlotte MacInnes, Mayumi Morales, Emily O’Neill, Amber Scates, Keaton Stazeweski-Hose and Helen Steicke.  Brodie Stewart on piano was superb.  Zonta club member, Laura Bernay was the inspiration behind the event and had put together a diverse program that had the audience spellbound.  Everyone will be hanging on to their programs as a reminder of the night – as we will all be watching these ‘young stars’ rise with interest.

The performer profiles helped us appreciate what a talented cast we were seeing!  Gulveen Bandel from the Golden Z Club of St Catherine’s College described how all proceeds would be going towards purchasing 1,000 birthing kits.


Many thanks to Anais Popoff-Asotoff for her great job with the sound and lighting and to the Members of the Zonta Club of Perth for providing the lovely supper.
