What a difference a year makes! The 2015 P&F Sundowner was a typically balmy, Perth summer evening. Fast forward to 2016 and there was a definite chill in the air. Not that that dampened the spirits of the large contingent of parents assembled to meet and greet and chat about their expectations for the year to come. . . or their eagerness to hear the outcome of the 2016 OHA Raffle draw.
There can of course only be one winner – and this year that was the Kennedy-Lennie family who have Cameron in Year 9. Kerry, sadly was not able to be in attendance on the night as her husband had flown out to China the night before, so she was at home - with the children, preparing for the start of school the next day.
When advised of her windfall directly after the draw, by the OHA President Mat Stinton (1984-89) she was of course over the moon. And why wouldn’t you be! What a great way to start the year. Between her shrieks of delight, Kerry said she had never won anything in a raffle before – not even so much as a frozen chook!
