Like last time, in February, I came along and captured the story of the fundraising day itself. Held at Bundoora Park Heritage Village, this event attracted more […]

Hi Beth
honestly i have never come across someone who can tell a story thru images like you do.
each one is a treasured moment of a day that will forever live in the memories of all who attended
i think that the final series with Lisa and her parents really captured the strong bond that the O’Hara family have its honest fun and filled with love
we as a group who plan these events are blessed that we have you come along and capture the events so beautifully.

thank you my friend
cheers

Well done Beth…
After meeting Lisa at the Feb event, it was not only a pleasure, but a mission to organise an event even bigger on this side of Melbourne..
As I said in a couple of my speeches, I was genuinely and emotionally overwhelmed by the attendance and the support, shown to a lovely girl that, I believe it is safe to say, more than 1/2 didn’t know…
Lisa, all these people were touched by your story, as I was, and it show…
I am sure that with yours, and your awesome parents appreciation shown on the day, these people would love to be right behind all the way…
With your Fight, your love of life, your appreciation, WE ALL LOVE YA….

Beth Jennings - February 14, 2012 - 3:14 pm

Yes Gary you are totally right! He did an awesome job – I know he didn’t end up in the photos I took bizarrely! He must have been flying around a lot and we didn’t cross paths. Not to worry! Brilliant day, by the looks over at facebook everybody is very pleased with everything all round. Best, B

Darryn Lee - February 14, 2012 - 3:55 pm

As the owner of the yellow/white car in the photos, I turned up on the day and, had never met Lisa in person..
By the end of the day, it fealt as she she was a life long friend..
Lisa is one hell of an inspirational, beautiful woman..
Lisa chose my car as the car, she most wished to take home, the trophy that was awarded to me will be cherished more than any other my car will ever be awarded…
I will always be there if there is to be other events organized in the future..
Luv ya Lisa

Beth Jennings - February 14, 2012 - 4:07 pm

Brilliant Darryn, very kind words from one kind soul (you) to another (Lisa). She is one lucky lady to have such awesome people behind her. Her video is amazing how she does it I will never know. B
