The sun shone, the outfits were glamourous, and a great day was had by all 155 guests that attended the inaugural Dream Workers Race Day.
Lady's Beauty Indulgence Day - 16th August 2009
We turned on the weather, and some special lady's received a well deserved pampering, all in the name of raising money for the Domestic Violence Prevention Centre.
We raised just over $1,200 for this very worthy cause, while having fun at the same time.
Southport Carrara Netball Carnival - 1st November 2009
The skies may have been grey, but the spirit was anything but that, as 650 people converged on Southport Carrara Netball Club for a charity netball carnival to raise money for Jessica Dunne.
Dream Workers Spinathon - 8th November 2009
A fun day was had by all that were involved in this years Spinathon - teams of 10 had to keep the wheels of a spin bike turning for 10 hours, while dressed in each hour's music theme.
From Reggae, to Aussie Rock and Michael Jackson - the music and the games were varied, but everyone had a great day.
Each person is sponsored by friends and colleagues for their time on the bike and money raised will be sent to Bravehearts, who are involved in the prevention of child sex abuse.
There were some great outfits, lots of laughs and some suspicious skills on the moonwalk.
Thanks must go to Healthy Lifestyle Clinic at Bundall who opened their doors for the day and allowed us to invade them!
Beach Walk for Nicole - 11th April 2010
The weather was warm, as was the atmosphere as a crowd of 85 strong started the day at 7am with some yoga stretches followed by a 5km walk on the beach - all in aid of raising money for Nicole Tierney's Appeal.
Many friends and family of Nicole's wanted to help support Nicole's family, so they all came along to the beach walk. Some family members came from as far away as NSW and had an early start in order to make it for the 7am start.
Everybody on the beach was asking where the throng of people came from as we descended over the sand dunes and sweated it out to support Nicole.
Nicole's sister Fiona said a few words on behalf of Nicole and Dream Workers were happy to present a cheque for $6,000 for money that has been raised so far for Nicole.
Nearly $3,000 was raised at the Beach Walk.
Dream Workers Race Day 29th May 2010
The heavens opened earlier in the day, causing the cancellation of all Races at the Gold Coast Turf Club,but that didn't deter the 135 strong crowd that came along to the Dream Workers Race Day to help raise funds for Nicole Tierney's Appeal.
A lot of fun was had by all as MC, Marc Renai, kept everyone entertained with games like Hubba Bubba bubble blowing competition, paper plane throwing competition and the Fillies and Stallions Fashion Parade.
In the fashion parade, the finalist in the fillies, had to perform a talent - who could go past a lady that can turn her eye lids inside out, losing a contact lense on the floor in the process.
The Stallions were in shock as the finalilsts, in the men's fashion parade, were frisked by strangers.
There were many winners in the lucky door prize, and the raffle. Congratulations to the winning bidders in the fabulous auction items.
A great fun day was had by all, and everybody was moved by the journey of Nicole and her family in the last year, as told by mum, Jen.
Around $20,000 was raised on the day, thanks to all who attended for their generosity on the day, on behalf of Dream Workers and the Tierney family.

Mexican Night October 16th 2010 for Jack Lenehan
There was a lot of colour and activity at the Mexican themed night raising money for Jack Lenehan's Appeal.
2 year old Jack, the star of the night, partied long into the night, and was a limbo king.
Guests were treated to the Congo Line, Limbo, a Pinata Bash and the Mexican Hat Dance.
Nearly $11,000 was raised on the night with some fierce bidding on a surf board from Mick Fannings collection and a holiday of 5 nights accommodation compliments of Accor Vacation Club.
There was so many great outfits for the night, judges struggled to choose a winner. Finalists had to compete in Mexican dancing to be voted for.
MC, Marco Renai, revved the crowd up early, and Latin Mania dance school from Isle of Capri, opened the night with some amazing salsa dancing.
A great, fun night was had by all guests.

Dream Workers Race Day 2011 for Youngcare
The sun may not have shone, but at least we had some horse races this year, when the 140 strong crowd came to the Gold Coast Turf Club on March 5th to help Dream Workers raise some much needed funds for Youngcare.
MC, Marc Renai, once again outdid himself, as he steered the crowd through the Heads and Tails game, a human horse race around the tables and the most unusual fashion parade that anyone has ever witnessed.
The men slid onto their backs in the rain, and were forced to take their shirts off in order to win the competition. The ladies needed to remove their heels to try to win the fashion stakes in the shoes. They also resorted to pulling in a body builder and a belly dancer just to try to win the fascinator competition...but you had to be there!
A lot of laughs were had by all and over $10,000 was raised for Youngcare to help with the construction of their new facility on the Gold Coast for young people in care.
Ben Smith -- our junior photographer on the day, wore his fingers off as his shutter clicked all day to capture the spirit of this years Race Day
Thank you so much to our many sponsors who gave so generously to make it such an amazing day and to our great guests who made it such a fun day.
Dream Workers Race Day 2012 for Matilda Wilson
What a fantastic day at the Dream Workers Race Day, when the room filled at the Gold Coast Turf Club on 3rd March to help Dream Workers raise some much needed funds for Tilly Wilson.
MC, Marc Renai, once again outdid himself, as he steered the crowd through the Heads and Tails game, an outstanding fashion parade and impressive talents that anyone has ever witnessed from filling their mouth with ice cubes to push ups in heels. We also found out what a Scotsman really does wear under his kilt.
A lot of laughs were had by all and $9,300 was raised for Matilda Wilson to assist in the purchase of a manual wheelchair and standing frame. The very talented McKenzie Comer also dedicated a song to Matilda Wilson on the day.
Thank you so much to our many sponsors who gave so generously to make it such an amazing day and to our great guests who made it such a fun day.'
