Ms Niglia said special mention must go to Fresh Cheese Company and Tatura Milk for contributing dips and cheese to the tables.
‘‘It was a ‘fantastic night’. For a small community, more than 80 people attended the evening where all enjoyed a roast meal supplied by the Glass Door Café Murchison with bread rolls provided by Tatura Bakery and Lunches,’’ she said.
Ms Niglia said much needed funds were raised for the local community, tennis club and for general up-keep of the hall and tennis courts.
‘‘Spot prizes and raffles were given throughout the night,’’ she said.
‘‘Congratulations to Rachele Smith who won the major prize — a deserving winner who has recently settled in the area from the USA.
‘‘Second prize went to another local, Melinda Holmes. Well done to our lucky winners.’’
Ms Niglia said all who attended the evening received lucky door prizes and show bags throughout the night.
