GUEST SPEAKERS - Trish Gerahty and Cerise Hockey ‘Junk to Funk’
This event started as a concept to raise funds for some Special School projects in 2010 and has taken off in popularity since. The concept is to recycle common materials and
style them into a fashion garment with both style and creativity. This takes quite an amount of behind the scenes hard work in designing, stitching, and sewing the recycled material.The event takes the form of a cocktail party where the costumes are paraded and judged and so far, over $51,000 has been raised to purchase much needed items such as interactive whiteboards, iPad’s, consoles, games and musical equipment for the students. Since inception, the event grew quickly in popularity and in 2010 was awarded
the 2012 Whyalla Community Event of the Year. It is now one of the key social events of the calendar and is sold out early. This years event is at the Whyalla Golf Club on Saturday August 1st.
