RWNZ Awana branch held a spectacular Arabian Nights Ball in Tryphena on Queen’s Birthday weekend to raise $1000 for their Secondary Educational Scholarship.
Encouraged by the success of the previous year’s event an enormous amount of hard work and preparation went into the ball with committee members Gillian Cran, Helen Mabey, Geraldine Downie, Anne Robertson and Merle White bringing the middle eastern theme to life.
The genie came out of the bottle and the decor included a ‘harem corner’, persian carpet, exotic flower arrangements and a mural featuring elephants, camels and palm trees painted by local artist Peter Edmonds. There was even a belly dancing troupe!
Generous sponsors provided raffle prizes including a basket of GBI Bee Company products; a return airfare on Great Barrier Airlines and a return trip on SeaLink. Angsana Restaurant also gifted food for spot prizes.
