Y Staff and Volunteers Light Up the Night 2023
The Y Queensland family came together on Saturday, December 2nd, 2023, to celebrate the Annual Staff and Volunteers Christmas Party at the dazzling Events on Oxdale. The night, themed "Light up the Night," was a spectacular gathering of our dedicated staff and volunteers from various Y Queensland services, including housing, fitness and recreation, childcare and OSHC, youth programs, op shops, and community centers.
The festivities kicked off with a mesmerising live performance by the Nick Trovas Acoustic Duo, setting the perfect tone for an unforgettable evening. Our lively hosts, Jamie and Anne, ensured the event was filled with laughter, joy, and a sense of community. A significant highlight of the night was the acknowledgment and celebration of Y staff who have dedicated 5, 10, and an impressive 35+ years to our cause.
Our CEO, Damian Foley, added a touch of leadership and gratitude to the evening. Damian took the stage to express his heartfelt thanks to everyone for attending the party, and extending a special shout-out to the volunteers in OSHC and Op shops for their incredible hard work and contributions.
The evening unfolded with a delightful dinner and refreshing drinks, creating the perfect atmosphere for everyone to unwind and socialise. The celebration continued late into the night with a lively DJ, ensuring that the dance floor remained ablaze with energy.
As a token of appreciation and recognition, several awards were presented to outstanding individuals and groups. The "Best Dressed Award," "Most Innovative Costume," "Best Dancer," "Best Interpretation of the Theme," and the coveted "Life of the Party Group" awards added an extra layer of excitement to the event. The Y Queensland Annual Staff and Volunteers Xmas Party 2023 truly embodied the spirit of celebration, connection, and community.
