The grand doors of ‘Toonarbin’, the magnificently restored Georgian home of early settler, Captain Henry O’Reilly, and former convent, were opened wide to Flying Arts Alliance and guests on Friday, 24 August 2018.
Our gracious hosts, and the house’s owners, Allen Hunter and Carmel Dyer, generously opened their home and hearts so we could grow our 500 Club donor circle at this special fundraising event. Over 80 guests were treated to a rare tour of an exquisite art collection, fine food and wine at this gala event.
Flying Arts’ 500 Club is a valued group of donors who significantly help us grow our programs and services that support and develop established, emerging and aspiring artists, young people and communities across Queensland. 500 Club donations strengthen our signature event, the Queensland Regional Art awards, and, importantly, help us connect isolated regional and remote Queensland communities through visual arts activities and programs.
Thank you to our current 500 Club donors including Peter and Louise Hickson, Mary-Louise North, Lee Nevison, Bart Mead, Prof Glyn Davis, John O’Toole, Andy and Helen Stephanos, Dimitri and Holly Stephanos, Wendy Brooks, Sarah Barron, Kathy Schaefer, Judith and Graham Bell, Peter and Geraldine Castleton, Robert and Chesne Nason, Nicholas and Dianne Eden, Karen Stephens, Brad Haseman, Shaaron Boughen, Kasia Kondas, Luigi and Pamela Casagrande, Noel Gardner, Robby Nason, Susan Ostling, Mike and Sharon Mitchell.
