When those well-known entertainers The Bribie Gleemen held their most recent concert with the theme, “Men Can Dream,” they expected to attract an audience of somewhere just over one hundred and hopefully raise around $1,500 to donate to the Drought Relief Appeal so, when the amount raised was tallied at $2,300 due to the concert hall being packed out, a spokesperson commented that the result was “more than they could have even dreamed about.”

The funds were handed over to the CWA for distribution to the right areas. The Bribie Gleemen have become popular within the community and hold several concerts each year, some for the public and a few for residents of aged care facilities. Publicity Officer John Gaffy told me that the group still has two performances between now and year’s end, one for the residents of the Churches of Christ Care in Foley Street and their Christmas concert at the Uniting Church in Webster Street in Bongaree on December 15th, commencing at 2.30 pm.
