1920s Gala Fundraiser Makes $42 000


Last Saturday, Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters, played their authentic Roaring 20s speakeasy jazz for the 1920s Ozwac Gala Ball, raising money for this venerable charity.

What is Ozwac? Ozwac, the Australian Women and Children’s Research Foundation, is a charity that raises and grants money for research in western Sydney. It works within the University of Sydney Clinical School at Nepean. The research is essential to improve clinical care for mothers and babies. In general, such research is poorly funded in Australia.

In Greg Poppleton and the Broadcasters for the 1920s gala where Greg Poppleton 1920s singer, Geoff Power trumpet and sousaphone, Chuck Morgan banjo and ukeleles, and Adam Barnard drums. Film and TV personalities Roy Billing and Tara Dennis were also at the Ball, sharing their tremendous talents for the cause.

$42 000 was raised.

One of the organisers of the successful 1920s themed Fundraising Ball (which was held in the Evans Theatre of Penrith Panthers) took some happy snaps of Greg Poppleton and the Bakelite Broadcasters on stage for you. We hope you enjoy them. (Thank you, Kane)
