Bartons FUNDRAISING GALA NIGHT
Bartons together with Hyundai and Wynnum Manly Seagulls hosted a successful Gala fundraiser dinner to assist 4 of the bayside community organisations raise money for much needed resources. Special Guests included Paul Green and Des Hasler who spoke about all things footy, coaching and lucky undies with Ben Davis.
