What a happy bunch, great photo, when I found this one I just had to add it. My guess is one of Michael Osborne's?

Oh, What A Night

The Echidnas arranged a special night for veteran performer Lucky Grills at Riverwood Legion Club on 4th July 2001.

Pictured with life long friend and co-performer Geoff Mack,

The evening was conducted as a "roast" with many show business personalities giving their time and talents to entertain the large audience.

Thanks to Doug McLaughlin for making the venue available so that proceeds could be banked into the Echidnas account for future funding of projects and a helping hand for those in need because of illness or other unseen problems.

Lucky had just been given the Wallace Award in Queensland for "Comic of the Year".

After 50 years in the game Lucky is busy writing a book on his career both on and off the stage.

The evening raised $3,019.50 after a considerable late minute contribution by the then Mayor of Ryde and former entertainer Ivan Petch.
