Cuban Revelry Day in Perth

The ACFS Perth faithful to its commitment to the Cuban people and the revolution celebrated last Saturday 26th July the national "Cuban revelry day" with Cuban music and traditional food and drinks.
More than 200 people attended the celebration "Santiago de Cuba Carnival" held in Kulcha in Fremantle which was a sold out function and many people unfortunately were turned away at the door as the venue reached full capacity.
The highlight of the evening apart from the speeches was the draw of the ACFS raffle which gave the following results:
The winners were:
First Prize -      Trip to Cuba, Tony Lakis (WA)
Second Prize - $1000 cash, Oliver Villar  (NSW)
Third Prize -     Set of Cuban DVD's, Paul Ferreira (WA)
Thanks to Loretta Martella,  Kulcha's General Manager for leaving another engagement to be there on the evening to do the draw.
People interested to visit Cuba as a brigadista in the upcoming 26th Southern Cross Brigade should contact:
acfsperth@gmail.com or visit www.cubabrigade.org.au for more detailed information.
All the proceeds raised on the night will go to fund a community agricultural project in Cuba.
