Rotary club raises $25,000 from Opera in Arboretum

This Opera in the Arboretum has raised a net profit of $25,000, the Rotary Club of Woy Woy has announced.

Club president Ms Julie Jones said it was "an excellent result considering it was the first year back after the Covid lockdowns and we had torrential rain for the fortnight prior".

A sum of $8000 will go to the Conservatorium Strings Scholarship for 20 pupils; and $6000 will go to each of Ocean Beach and Umina Surf Life Saving Clubs.

The remainder of the funds will be distributed locally to local charities and the Rotary Foundation.

The club held an Opera Appreciation Dinner to thank those who sponsored the event or assisted on the day.

The night was chaired by the club's Opera Chairman Mr Wayne Jennings handed out certificates of appreciation, and expressed his thanks.

Central Coast Conservatorium was represented by artistic director Mr Patrick Brennan.

Ocean Beach Surf Life Saving Club was represented by Ms Robyn Carr, and Umina Surf Life Saving Club by Ms Wendy Cook.

"Planning is already underway for Opera 2023," said Ms Jones.

"The date has been confirmed as Saturday, March 11.

"We look forward to a bigger crowd, more beautiful music and a lovely afternoon in the Pearl Beach Arboretum next year."

Pictured are club members Mr John Steinbeck, Mr Trevor Walker, Mr Bill Cook and Mr Don Tee at the Appreciation Dinner.
