30.03.2017 – We love being involved in the community and helping to raise money for a good cause!
The East Fremantle Shark’s number 17, Timothy Bristol launched his second children book “I’m The Best” last night here at The Left Bank!
It was a lovely evening in our upstairs River Bar, complemented by free Kids Activities on the Mezzanine for all the little ones running around. Brett Sprigg hosted the evening and chatted to author Timothy about the book and shared some of his own stories growing up. Brett also welcomed Ex-Fremantle Docker and special guest Luke McPharlin on stage.
Centred around the theme of sibling rivalry, “I’m the Best” is based on the character Billy from the first book, Billy the Brilliant. It is a lovely children’s book with illustrations from Timothy’s partner Nathalie.
The charity that was going to benefit from the evening was the
$3 from every book were donated to the Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation together with additional funds from the silent auction and raffle, which resulted in around $2,000 in donations.
Besides helping to host the event in our venue and offering a complimentary glass of Prosecco on arrival, we also promised to be donating $1 from every drink sold on the night. After selling approximately 250 drinks on the night, we decided to double that and donate $500 to the Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation.
It was a pleasure to be part of this family event and we’d like to thank you everyone that joined us and Tim&Nat (and Stitches of course!) on the night.
Show your support for Tim and Nat by purchasing their book here.
As Tim would say: it’s about feeling good, not just looking good! 🙂
