ICANIWILL's 4th birthday went off with a bang 💥
Saturday night. Food. Drinks. Fireworks 💥.
It was a night that wont be forgotten, and it was a night that ended in a bang.
Guests arrived to the amazing dinner setting that was the river stage, with live music, a view over the green, and a giant ICANIWILL illuminating the hills. The night began with a sit down, five-star dinner, courtesy of our favourite restaurant MooMoos. The food was fabulous, and the drinks on the side ensured no one was left sober 🍹. Travers Beynon, his team, and his guests all shone in their amazing black-tie attire!
Throughout the evening raffle tickets were sold, with all proceeds going towards the charity and helping us grant wishes, with amazing prizes on offer such as a HUGE Clinique package, lunch for four at our favourite Brisbane restaurant MooMoos, and a $400 Gerard’s Bistro package!
This evening allowed us to show our family and friends what we have been up to over the last year, and wishes that we have granted. The evening was made even more exciting when we granted three wishes LIVE! The first wish we got to grant was Claudia's, who had dreams of becoming a princess - so we made that dream come true 👑. Dressed to impress, Claudia was glammed up and had an amazing princess dress to complete the look. Making a grand entrance on Buck the Broncos Horse, Claudia was welcomed onto the stage by Courtney Thorpe - Miss World Australia. With Claudia in the spotlight, Courtney crowned her a princess, making it an unforgettable night for all!
From there it just got better.
Brydi, one of our recent wish recipients, and Brenden, one of our ambassadors, got together to talk about granting Brydi's wish. The video, which was shown on channel 7 last week, was shown to our family and friends, and showcased how amazing it is when we get to make dreams come true. That wasn't all for Brydi though. Later in the evening, our friend Travers Beynon surprised Brydi and her family by gifting Brydi a state-of-the-art Invacare Top End Li’l Excelerator-2 Hand cycle, which means she can continue to follow her dream of becoming a paralympian just like Brenden! This was an amazing gift, and we are forever thankful for the generosity of Travers.
To top off the evening of wishes, Anthony, who's wish we granted only on TUESDAY just gone, got up and spoke about his experience on the racetrack with Travers Beynon Racing! He was then later surprised once again by one of our super good friends Steve, Autumn, and Paul, who heard of Anthony's wish to be a chef, and gave him the opportunity to be an apprentice at their amazing restaurant MooMoos 🐄. Check out the details of Anthony's wish here!
The live auctions rounded out the evening, with amazing items up for grabs including a tailor-made suit from Wil Valor, prime tickets to F1 racing in Singapore, and more amazing holiday locations all over the world!
It really was a night to remember, and it’s only up from here!
