Inside Story Fundraiser a Huge Success

Our November "Inside Story" community event conducted in conjunction with the Westgate Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Foundation and the Keilor Bowls Club proved an outstanding success when an enthusiastic capacity crowd of 160 turned out on the night.
 
Compered by Sandra Nicholson, retired Assistant Commissioner, Victoria Police & Chair of the Westgate Blue Ribbon Foundation, attendees heard much about contemporary policing and local Brimbank policing, as well as getting an insight into police investigations undertaken to solve some of Victoria's most notable crimes from Superintendent Glenn Weir, Divisional Commander, Brimbank Division, Victoria Police and Charle Bezzina ex-Victoria Police, Homicide, Drug, Armed Robbery & Internal Investigations.
 
The Keilor Bowls Club venue, the make up of the audience, the opportunity to ask questions of the presenters, and to mingle informally during the light supper intermission gave the event a true community feel.  The enthusiasm on the night was reflected in a beyond expectation profit approaching $5700 (plus a private donation of $200 on the night direct to the Blue Ribbon Foundation) from ticket sales, a raffle and silent auctions on the night, and a post event raffle.  All of this profit will go to the Westgate Blue Ribbon Foundation to support it in funding new and improved emergency facilities in western suburb public hospitals in memory of fallen police officers.
 
We are most grateful to the support of the Westgate Blue Ribbon Foundation for its assistance in making the night such a great success, to Superintendent Glenn Weir and Charlie Bezzina for so generously giving us their time, and to the Keilor Bowls Club for donating the venue and undertaking the catering - such catering being the subject of many positive comments and being in such quantity that we were able to donate the excess to the Corpus Christi Hostel in Greenvale.
 
The profits from the event were largely attributable to the very generous donations provided by supporters. The Club and the Westgate Blue Ribbon Foundation are indebted to them for their great support.

++++++++

Thank you to all who gave great support to our Inside Story fundraiser and associated raffle ticket sales.  The 100 raffle tickets (all sold) in the speedcar passenger experience raffle were:
 
Yellow D01 - 20, Red A01 - 20, Blue B01 - 60  The winner of that passenger experience in the two seater speedcar at Bacchus Marsh speedway (which we drew at Keilor Bowls Club in the presence of Rotary Club of Keilor President Ted Haydon at 6pm Wed 17th December) was Ticket RED A18 won by  Tim Lang.  
Thank you again to those who purchased raffle tickets - I know there will be a number of you relieved that you did not win!!!!1

Keilor Rotary Club Facilitiates a Donation to Australian Rotary Health

A fitting way to complete Cameron Horder's year of Presidency was to be a part of this wonderful presentation of $393,777.71 to Australian Rotary Health. Past District Governor Greg Ross extended Australian Rotary Health's gratitude at being the recipient of this wonderful bequest, which will be used to continue research into bowel cancer. Our David Whiting was humbled by the presentation of a Saphire Paul Harris awarded to him for his efforts in orchestrating this bequest. Congratulations to all.

Hand Brake Turn

Creating Opportunities for life
The Rotary Club of Keilor is a proud supporter of Hand Brake Turn, an organisation who helps turn around the lives of disadvantaged young people. Hand Brake Turn provides hand’s on training in automotive skills for young people aged 15 to 19 who have difficulty within the mainstream education system. After eight weeks of intensive automotive training along with social skill development, students are rewarded with a Certificate 1, followed by up to 12 months of job search and personal support.
At a recent graduation ceremony the Rotary Club of Keilor handed over a cheque to Hand Brake Turn using a part of the funds raised at the recent Keilor Rotary Club Car Show.  Our club also supports HBT by sending them old cars for students to restore for sale or to use during their training.
