One Day Only – write up and thanks!

A huge, big, grateful dose of thanks to everyone who donated such wicked prizes and also to everyone came to Atlas on Sunday to support this year's One Day Only event. What an awesome night! It was a ton of fun and we managed to raise a grand total of $3,021.00 for QMTBC! Money that we are sure will be put to great use. Thank you all so much!

A massive shout-out once again to all the businesses who got behind this year's One Day Only event by supporting it with such generosity. Big gratitude to:

If you missed this year's event it all kicked off with the League of Gentlemen mega-train from the top of the gondola, down Hammy's and finished at an expanded Atlas, as we took over neighbouring Farelli's for the evening. We had local photographer Callum Wood on hand to get some awesome snaps of the mega train and were also able to score Callum's services again to get some brilliant shots of everyone enjoying the festivities. 

We had DJ Justin on the decks spinning tunes and the raffle kicked off at 8pm with at lot of very stoked prize winners adding to the party atmosphere. The grand prize winners of the evening were Monica Mixcva and Nicole Kirch. Monica won the $2500 worth of bike upgrades from Outdoor World and Nicola won a 14/15 gondola pass from Skyline. Pete McInally also scooped a season's pass from Cardrona.

Thanks go also to Indri, Jo, Rosie and Amy for rolling up their sleeves and pitching in with a few volunteer hours selling tickets. Thanks also to the Atlas and Farelli's crew for their usual high levels of service. 

Check out the pictures below and we've loaded the full album to our Facebook page. What an awesome event, we are so grateful to everyone who contributed to it. It's seems a bit sad that's it over now but at least there's always next year to look forward to!
