GLOBE GOES TO DAYLESFORD - Mark Grogan
GLOBE headed off for a weekend in Daylesford over the 13th and 14th May.
The weekend started on the Friday night at the Grande Hotel in Hepburn Springs for a fabulous night of cabaret seeing the wonderful “Supergirly” show. Highly recommended.
Saturday brunch was at Cliffys and thanks to the owners Katie and Trudy for some great coffee.
A few of the group went off to the “Glenlyon” Estate winery for wine tasting and an excellent lunch. Thanks to Lee and the boys for making us welcome. This winery is set in a beautiful countryside location with a wonderful selection of wines to sample.
But of course, the main event was the GLOBE Blended Fruits drinks and dinner on the Saturday night at the Daylesford Hotel.
Over 60 people attended the night and it was great to have a large turnout by Daylesford locals. There were a number of local business owners there along with Merrin and Judy from the Chillout Committee.
We also had the launch of the Daylesford / Hepburn Springs GOGO directory. GOGO is the “Gay owned and Gay operated” business directory that has been set up by a number of local businesses in the area.
We also had some great raffle prizes offered and we raised $600 on the night. Proceeds going to Chillout and the Vic AIDS Council rural division.
A big thanks must go to Will Walton (and Peter) at Hocking Stuart Daylesford for their sponsorship and support for the weekend.
Let’s do it again later in 2016!
