More than 500 people raised over $1400 to see local celebrities such as Mayor Tony Foster, Heath Macpherson and the talented Betty Stapenell lose by one run to the TCA

All Stars featuring celebrities Kim and Dave, Matt and Haydo , Tasmanian Cricket Coach Tim Coyle and mega star Blair Brownless.

It was a wonderful community event, scarred only by PCYC Andrew Dean wearing underwear while batting. While crowd control was an issue when he got out, many children left as result of his antics.

Thanks to all those involved particularly the TCA, Brighton Football Club, Brighton Bakehouse, Rosie and Michael Purdon and all players. Particular thanks go to Chris Garrett and Andrew Dykes from the TCA.
