The Benny Wills Gala Event went off like a fire cracker at Skyfire.  The night was filled with laughter, and tears. Joy and sadness. Selflessness and generosity.

It is something I am very proud to be part of, even if my part was only very small in the scheme of things.

I captured around 600 special moments but none of them more special than the tear jerking speeches.  It was enough to bring a grown man to cry.

Speeches at the Benny Will Gala for 2013

As the night moved from the speeches through to the auctions the mood changed into celebrating and support.  The community dug deep and left nothing on the track.

It was a great example of what two people can do to make a real difference and with the community support they will continue to do this at least for another year when the Benny Wills Gala Event will be held again next year on the 20th Sep 2014, and I for one hope to be back again to support them.

Oh let me leave you with this….

When all else fails pretend your a Zombie when Michael Jacksons song Thriller is played by the DJ.
