Light the Night was held at the new Busselton Amphitheatre on Saturday to raise money for the Leukemia Foundation, which helps Australians beat blood cancer, improve survival rates and their quality of life.
There was lots of family entertainment at the event including music from the Broadbent Brothers and Emma Nisbett along with an ocean theme dress up competition with pirate storyteller Captain Boots.
It was the fifth year Light the Night event in Busselton with organiser Dawn Blanchard raising more than $60,000 for the foundation in memory of her cousin Penny.
“My Uncle Dave also sadly passed away from blood cancer earlier this year, joining Penny in our thoughts and memories,” she said.
“With a rare form of blood cancer, I am proud to say that my Uncle Dave’s death was able to help others in assisting with medical research and advancement.
“This year, our families will be carrying gold lanterns to remember and celebrate the memories of Penny and Uncle Dave and the lives that they lived.”
