It’s the time of the year that we thank all our ladies for their support and hard work they do for our club.
Last Saturday was the Brothers annual Ladies Day event. It’s the time of the year that we thank all our ladies for the support and hard work they do for our club along with raising money for a chosen charity. It’s the highlight of the clubs social calendar and an event that’s not to be missed. With months of planning and hard work by a very committed group of ladies, this year’s event raised the bar to new levels as over 120 ladies celebrated together. It’s always a roller coaster of emotions as we raise awareness for some important women’s issues, support charities and celebrate with some more light hearted entertainment.
Ladies Day is always well supported by our club members, mums, grand mothers, wives, girlfriends and friends, it was such a pleasure to see so many beautiful ladies dressed in white, supporting this year’s theme of “Fifty Shades of White” you all looked fabulous!
As in previous years, $10 of every ticket sold goes to a chosen charity. Bev McDougall chose the charity to be domestic violence which is what we wanted to do in 2020 but COVID-19 had other plans, in honour of Bevs wishes we carried on and our amazing volunteer Ali Skillen found a well-deserved charity for the funds to go to, Bron Kelly from the Graceville Woman’s Refuge kindly gave up her time to raise awareness around domestic violence. Bron took to the stage to talk about how she and Graceville Women’s Refuge are helping ladies in need, her message was powerful and even more so as she spoke about a tragedy that occurred only the night before. $1,250.00 from our ticket sales will go directly to the charity. You can check out all the Ladies Day 2021 photos in our gallery here.
Miss Joondalup Quest
The evening’s finale, the crescendo was delivered by our players with their onstage performances. It’s without doubt the best part of the night as our men take the stage to put on performances for all the ladies and this year they did not fail to entertain! Loads of after training rehearsals, hard work, stress and anxiety is all made worthwhile when they strut onto stage to the screams of hundreds of adoring ladies.
This year’s program started with our U18s performing Swan Lake, Colts were next onstage performing a Backstreet Boys compilation, Ressies had the irrepressible “Fredo” Mercury wanting to Break Free. The final act was delivered by our Premier Grade, they strutted their stuff, oiled up wearing nothing but capes and Brothers budgie smugglers dancing to Bruno Mars Uptown Funk! All acts were met with roars of approval from the ladies, however their can only be 1 winner and the 2021 trophy was awarded to our U18s with special mention to all their mums for what can only be described as a boil over. Congratulations to our newly crowned Miss Joondalup winners, the U18s for an exceptional performance! In true Brothers style the night kicked on with lots of dancing, drinking in a massive celebration of our incredible club in which a great night was had by everyone! Check out all the acts here.
An Amazing Group
Such a well-organized event has a lot of hard work going on behind the scenes. There are so many people to thank and non more than Emma Jones, her energy and drive ensures that these events are always a massive success. The event could not go ahead without the efforts of the committee members and club volunteers who met up on many occasions to print, laminate, cut, sew, and drink lots of wine to ensure every lady present had a great experience yet again! A special thanks to our beautiful Donna Allen who tirelessly works so hard to get the teams together to put on a show, holding rehearsals and working a tight schedule for the men to perform. She was the night’s choreographer for ALL the acts along with help out with the organizing. Tanya Wall & Kirsty Wood, Ali Skillen all worked tirelessly in the lead up and for this we thank you.
