Light The Night - Benalla

Recently I attended the Benalla fundraiser for Leukaemia - "Light The Night". My niece Kate organised the night, quite a feat as she herself has Leukaemia. The local Rotary Club brought their BBQ along and sizzled the donated sausages and donated the gold coins back to the foundation. There were a number of local businesses who helped sponsor the night as well as a willing team of friends and family who helped out for the event.
An enjoyable and memorable evening was had by all. The evening was topped off with a sunset walk around the park with all lanterns lite. What a great sight that was. For those who don't know, a white lantern symbolizes someone living with Leukaemia, Gold - remembering someone, and blue - supporting someone.
There was a large crowd in attendance and many lanterns were sold on the evening.
It was a very special night that I'm sure we will all remember. Great job Kate, you are an inspiration to us all.
Here are some of the photos I took on the evening. Hope you enjoy them.
