Vintage Rocks: Our House on the Hill Fundraiser
What happens when you combine vintage glamour, a live music line-up, good food and a great cause, all in a seaside setting? The Our House on the Hill fundraiser – an event that promises to be not only fabulous fun but also aims to raise awareness of organ donation and money for medical research.

Money raised will go to The Common Good, an initiative of The Prince Charles Hospital Foundation, which funds live-saving and life-changing health research.

Event co-organiser and Queensland Premier Pinup Event producer, Lulu Divine, said the fundraiser was inspired by one of the event’s organisers, Kathy Allan, who recently had a life-saving lung transplant.

“Kathy wanted to figure out a way to give back,” said Lulu.“It’s something that’s had an amazing impact in her life. That’s why the event was created.”

Held at the Bramble Bay Bowls Club at Woody Point, the event will feature a pinup competition, with the theme of 1950s vintage sports and leisure. Lulu said twelve finalists “who love to embody 1950s' fashion and styling” would compete on the day.

“They will come in their interpretation of 1950s' sports and leisure wear,” said Lulu.

“It could be a cute vintage archery outfit, a swimming outfit, or golfing outfit. They’ll strike some poses for the audience and really showcase their personality.”

There will also be a full band line-up from morning until well into the evening. Lulu said that even though the overarching theme of the music was Rockabilly, there will be bands and performances for all musical tastes.

“We’re trying to cater to everyone,” she said.

“It’s going to be really family-friendly, and a good community-oriented event.”

As well as the pinup competition and live music, there will be a vintage car show, raffles, and food stalls. Guest speakers will also be aiming to raise awareness of the importance of organ donation and transplants.
