SLSA Easter FUNdraiser

submitted by Sally LaSalle

The SLSA Directors, Lauren and Nico put on a really fun afternoon’s activities, both as a social event and as a fundraiser for the SLSA SIM, Solace Dreams.

It all started a week or so ago when the Easter Surf Hut Decorating Contest was announced, and some spirited and creative decorating was made, together with a hotly contested voting session.

BunZillaMegaPeep

Apart from the contestants, the organisers did a great job too, with the creation of Surfing Bunzilla, and a guest appearance from Mega-Peep. 🙂

EasterHuts

The results of the decorating vote were; equal 3rd to Mick and Sienna, 2nd place to Sally and 1st Prize to Sunny and the Montego team 🙂

On Saturday afternoon activities kicked off with an Easter egg hunt which took participants all over Solace Dreams and Tsunami.

More Egss are (still) hidden on Chi and at Rachel’s Laguna Gallery site. [Edit Open then Copy Contents, when you find an egg for some nice prizes].

There was also an Easter Egg Fight and hence the SLSA Bunny ‘shields’ you can see in a lot of the pictures 🙂

There was a pop vote for best decorated Easter Egg with, 3rd place to Maryann Maa, 2nd to Dax Verlaine and 1st to Sally.

DecoratedEggs

MC n DJ Nico then spun some great tunes and we had a fun dance session on the beach at Solace Beach. While keeping one eye on the action at Bell’s beach !

Peeps also had a go on the Easter Egg Dodgem rides, and had some shell cracking fun with that 🙂

EggDodgems

Finally a vote for best Easter costume was held and the results were 3rd Sally, 2nd Lauren and 1st Sunny (Bunny) Mornington!! 🙂

SallyHuntingLaurenSunnyBunny

Lots of people drifted in and out over the course of the day and it was a good turn out for a holiday weekend.

JohnnyWMouseChoclatePetraSed

A little birdy whispered that over 17,000 L was raised through all the activities, and that is a great result, for the SLSA!

I think the organisers did a wonderful job, with the whole event, and kudos to them.

HappyEaster

Make sure you make it out to the next social event, you’ll have a blast 🙂MC_Nico
