Everyone wasamazed by his deep voice. His rendition of Bing Crosby’s ‘I’mDreaming of a White Christmas’ was amazing. Then Davidchanged up the tempo to Neil Diamond inspiring many up onthe dance floor.Then off came the pink jacket, and it was time forElvis.The night didn’t end there… We were also lucky enough to havetwo well known Australian rock ‘n’ rollers, Russell Morris andBrian Cadd. It brought back fond memories to many to hear suchsongs as Russell Morris’s “Real Thing” and Brian Cadd’s “LittleRay of Sunshine”. No one wanted the night to end, the room waschanting more, more, more!All good things do come to an end and end we did at midnight.Another successful night had by all and we must say that withoutthe assistance and support of our major sponsors AON, CUB,Coca Cola Amatil, HostPlus, Treasury Wine Estates, Mercuryand William Angliss Institute such a great niight would not bepossible.
