Last Saturday night saw the holding of the second Gala Night organised by the RC of Maroondah at the Karralyka Centre in Ringwood East.
As last year, the primary recipient of the event is Easter Health and their provision of Mental Health support. Last year, $25k was raised and it is hoped this year will be even more successful with a target of $30k. There were some 220 people in attendance including Eastern Health staff, sponsors, Rotarians and other supporters.
Major sponsors were Eastland and Orion Developments.
A special guest was Samuel Johnson speaking, amongst many other things, about his wonderful charity, Love Your Sister. Entertainment was provided by Bradley Marshall and the MC was Kylie Knight-Brown who did a fantastic job.

My congratulations to President Darrin Scott, chief organiser Richard Royale and the members of the Maroondah Club on a most successful evening.
Watch out for next year's event and encourage your Club to take a table.
