Who won the double pass to the Great Tropical Jazz Party?
Tonight is the start of the tenth Great Tropical Jazz Party on Magnetic Island and, following our News Club members' competition to correctly name the singer who first performed in 1999 and returns this weekend after winning the 2006 Shure Montreux Jazz Voice Competition in Switzerland(?), to receive a double weekend pass, we have a winner!
But first, the correct answer was: Kirstin Berardi, who will perform from 7.30pm on Saturday night in the Cleveland Room at the Magnetic International Resort.
Our winner however, was, in fact, husband & wife team (not sisters as previously thought!!) who put their names to the correct entry which was drawn from a hat this morning. They are Leigh and Sophina Hemingway and their free double pass to the entire GTJP awaits them in an envelope at the ticketing desk at the Resort.
We congratulate you Leigh and Sophina and thank the many others who entered and recommend you come along to this superb Island event for a great weekend's jazz.
Syl Hayes In reply to Fair raises $15,000 for school What a wonderful outcome for the school! I had a great time face-painting with Luke and Sasha, met lots of kids and parents,scored some great books at the Trash n Treasure stall, and even remembered to vote. Everywhere you looked people were enjoying themselves...such a tribute to the organisers. Well done!
