Lifesavers with Pride Members Update - December 2010


The Year in Review
  • 2010 Mardi Gras Parade - the most successful parade entry yet by LWP. Judges' Choice Award! Well done guys! Our huge Reel was our first time to use a HUGE home-made prop and boy was it a hit!
  • Tamarama Beach BBQ - our first ever Mardi Gras Festival Event! A great success down at the Tama club and beach.
  • MG Wrap-up Party - fantastic way to wrap up a fun few weeks and watch our DVD. Cover controversy - which one did you choose?
  • Mouth-to-Mouth at the Oxford - LWP goes into dance party mode with a fun night for all at the Oxford Underground. Looks to become an annual event.
  • SOS Start of Summer at the Beresford - what an amazing way to kick start summer at Sydney's most happening Sunday session. Most successful fund-raising and publicity event to date! Incredible prizes awarded from many generous sponsors! Let's make this a yearly event.
  • Lifesavers with Pride "Inc." - Yes, we're incorporated - LWP goes all legal and professional. Gives our group an important structure to run properly. More details to follow soon.
The Year Ahead - Expect our Most Fun and Successful Year EVER!
  • Mardi Gras Fair Day - Lifesavers with Pride stall will help promote becoming lifesavers and our diversity
  • Mouth to Mouth "2" at the Oxford - Another round of our high-profile Lifesavers with Pride event
  • Mardi Gras Beach BBQ and Carnival - Back for a second year, this is on before the Parade weekend - so a great chance to get together
  • Big Beach Bingay at Paddo RSL - A high-profile charity event where we get to do our bit to help out
Mardi Gras Parade 2011
  • We want you marching with us! Watch out for an email detailing the sign-up process.
  • Jono (our Creative Director - think "Reel" and "music") is already going over themes for our float this year - another "centre piece" - ideas are bouncing around. Have some ideas? Email info@lifesaverswithpride.com
  • Your committee met with Parade Director Ignatius Jones to hear about his grand plans for overhauling the parade and making it into a grand theatrical event that has both messages and entertains from start to finish. Ignatius is an entertainment industry veteran. Expect amazing things!
  • Laurence Stark has agreed to be our Choreographer again for 2011 and teach us how to dance, prance and romance!
  • We are looking forward to you being a BIG part of our best ever Mardi Gras! Get ready to "Say Something".
There you go! What a year it was! What a year ahead it is going to be!

WHAT A GREAT SUMMER THIS IS TO BE!!!

See you on the beach!
