A terrific topless show

THE latest event held as part of the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) Lumin8 Hobart program has raised more than $3500.

Shannons Take Your Top Off for Breast Cancer Research car show, held at Parliament Lawns in October, displayed a wide range of vintage and modern convertible vehicles.

The funds were raised predominantly through the sale of pink ribbons designed by Resin8 Design and made locally at Gecko Promotions.

A vintage Jeep restored and donated by Ken Hall and Tony Thomason was auctioned for $11,700, with all net profit donated to NBCF.

All convertible registrants were eligible for a number of trophies that recognised the best-fitted cars.

The TasPlates People’s Choice Award was presented to Ken Hall for his early 1900s Leon Bolle and the winner of the Shannons Trophy was Robert Anning for his 1972 MG.

The winner of the Lord Mayor’s Trophy was Billy Daly who exhibited his Austin Healy.

NBCF volunteer committee chair Judi Adams said she was extremely grateful for all those who donated items, time and equipment.

“Despite rain and high winds in the lead up to the event, the weather held up and more than 60 vehicles were on display,” she said.

“We would like to thank the Hobart Lord Mayor Alderman Damon Thomas, Deputy Lord Mayor Ron Christie and Rob Belbin’s Tasmanian Shannons team.

“We would also like to thank Hank Petrusma for his auctioning skills and Paul Casey from PMC Photography for capturing the event, and to Dragons Abreast and all the volunteers for their work.”

Lumin8 Hobart is the sister event to the Global Illumination campaign, an initiative of Esteé Lauder companies to raise national for breast cancer research.
