Spring Carnival: Time to get the fascinators out

FANCY a free glass of champagne?

Dress up looking your best for the Rosella Park School Spring Carnival fundraising event at the Gladstone Turf Club on October 17.

As well as all the fun involved in the races, there will be a fashion parade and competitions including best dressed female, best dressed male and best fascinator.

And of course, a free glass of champagne upon arrival.

Spring Carnival committee president and mother Michelle Denniss said The Rosella Park School race days have been regarded as some of the best race days held in Gladstone.

"So much effort and hard work goes into organising these events and we always get fantastic feedback from them," she said.

Michelle's daughter Shontae Denniss suffers from Rett Syndrome, leaving her incapable of many things; including walking.


Spring Carnival Comitte organisor Sue Wilson, Robyn Buttsworth, seven-year-old Shontae Denniss and committee president and mum Michelle Denniss are gearing up for the seventh annual Rosella Park School's Spring Carnival event, and need your help.
RACE DAY READY: Rosella Park School's Spring Carnival committee members Sue Wilson, Robyn Buttsworth, seven-year-old Shontae Denniss, committee president and mum Michelle Denniss are getting ready for this years race day to support students in need.

This year's fundraiser will be raising money for a wheel chair accessible bus for the students.

"We just want to raise enough so the students, and my daughter, can fully experience their schooling days," she said.

"Including the opportunity to go on class trips, excursions and ride on the bus every day to and from school with friends," Ms Denniss said.

"The fundraiser is the school's biggest annual event and the only way we could ever provide the students with all the facilities we have in the past.

"The students deserve the chance to experience schooling like any other child."

A three course lunch will be provided on the day and some great raffle prizes up for grabs.

If you want to support the cause, buy a seat for $70, sit back and enjoy the show and everything the day has to offer.

Tickets will be available for purchase tomorrow at Stockland across from Supre or pick up from the Rosella Park School.
