Acknowledging the generosity of local businesses in the Southern Highlands

SHCH’s recent Gala Dinner at the Centennial Winery Restaurant, Bowral, was not only a major fund raising event but also a wonderful confirmation of the generosity of the business community in the Southern Highlands.

The dinner team members approached dozens of businesses in the local area, both retail and commercial, to obtain items for auction and the response was wonderfully positive. Team members found that this task, which had seemed somewhat daunting on first appearances, proved just the reverse and was in fact a humbling experience, when several smaller businesses who themselves struggle at times in a tough retail market gave so graciously in the form of gift vouchers and products. 

We extend our heartfelt thanks to these generous local businesses who donated the items for auction on the night. Donations included Alpaca clothing, beauty treatments, hair makeovers, furniture, dinners at many of the best local restaurants, a golf weekend and a personal portrait painting by a well-known local artist. The many gift vouchers were auctioned in the form of ‘surprise’ hampers and proved very popular.

We can only thank our business community once again for their continued support and here is the roll call.
