More than 100 people packed the Uniting Church Hall to hear our members spread their love of singing and helped raise $3197 for Coolum Beach Meals on Wheels.
The morning entertainment featured foot-stomping highlights from our repertoire of African, world and gospel music, with guest appearances by Girls with Pearls, Patsy Cline Sisters, Dean Martin (aka Geoff Hawes) singing Amore and veteran member Don Hardgrave with his humorous rendition of Side by Side. Guests then enjoyed a wonderful feast for morning tea, prepared by choir members.
“Our members have the biggest hearts. They not only spread joy through song but volunteer their time outside of choir to a wide range of local community groups, including Coolum Beach Meals on Wheels,” choir director Yvonne said.
Cool Harmonies also farewelled long-term supporter and ‘friend of the choir’ Judy Blackall from Marcoola Community Bank Branch, who has been promoted to Regional Manager in Cairns.
“We thank Judy for her support over the last seven years and the bank’s sponsorship which has allowed Cool Harmonies to undertake a range of projects, including a CD, calendar and cookbook, with proceeds from sales being donated back to community groups,” Yvonne said.
