HOPE4HEALTH kicked of the year in style at the 2014 launch party - the annual Op Shop Ball, held this year at Helm Bar. We're not really sure how to describe the style of most of our members' outfits, but they were stylish nonetheless. We doubt any of the clothing items had double-digit price tags, some fashionistas actually chose to accessorise their kits by leaving the price tags on the clothes. We saw everything from denim bras, faux cowskin vests, terrible wigs, even worse hawaiian shirts, and of course a few gorgeous cross-dressers. Thanks to Helm Bar for the live music that matched everyones mood and drew everyone to the dance floor.
Yet again, HOPE4HEALTH lived up to their reputation of combining good times with good deeds, with $600 being raised on the night. The proceeds are going to Radio Lollipop - an international charity providing care, comfort and entertainment to kids in local hospitals. With almost 100 new members as of midnight on the night, the HOPE4HEALTH family are off to a flying start in 2014.
