The Bunbury Italian Club played host last Saturday to the Hugo Chávez Testimonial Dinner, an annual open-bar knees-up attended by a who’s who of South-West identities. Spotted cheerfully discussing the finer points of state and federal legislative interaction were Opposition Whip and parliamentary hottie Nola Marino (Member for Forrest) and the ever debonair Giovanni (John) Castrilli (Member for Bunbury).
Local punters and distinguished guests chowed down on a four-course meal while being entertained by a gaggle of kids from the local talent school before hitting the dance floor themselves to work-off the dinner.
Copious quantities of white linen suspended from the ceiling added to the Bolivarian atmosphere. Viva la revolution!
