The inaugural charity gala event was held at the Noosa Sheraton Resort to raise funds for Katie Rose Cottage at Doonan, a hospice dedicated to the whole of the Sunshine Coast for people who require palliative care. Katie Rose Cottage provides free palliative care and accommodation for their guests and relies solely on donations to run the hospice. The goal of the Katie Rose Cottage is to assist their guests in being as aware and pain-free as possible, so that their last days may be spent with dignity and quality while surrounded by their loved ones. The care at Katie Rose Cottage treats the person rather than the disease, focusing on quality rather than length of life; it affirms life and neither hastens nor postpones death. The hospice is family oriented by including the guest and the family in making decisions. All funds raised from the Noosa Summer Charity Ball, including the ticket sales will go directly to Katie Rose Cottage.
On 5th November 2011 the Noosa Summer Charity Ball hosted a Roaring 20’s Charity Ball at the Sheraton Noosa. In a nod to the Roaring Twenties, Lilly Pond Terrace and the Noosa Ball Room was transformed into a Speakeasy Bar with lounges and plenty of mood lighting. A lavish evening of live entertainment and dancing, raffles, auctions, delicious food and fabulous fun was had by all.
Dreamcoat Photography was there to shoot as period photographers (though with modern equipment thank goodness) capturing the glamour of the ritzy and debonair set playing gentle people with a beautifully restored (fully working) Model T Ford. We printed the photos on the night for everybody. 50% of our proceeds were donated to the Katie Rose Cottage charity as well.
