The Local Newsletter January 2010

On 9 December 2010 “The Mudgeeraba Foundation” had its annual donation ceremony in the Mudgeeraba Foundation Centre (MFC). First held in 2001 in the Old Post Office it is combined since 2004 with the opening ceremony of “The d’Arcy Doyle Art Awards” which is now one of the most prestigious art exhibitions in Australia. Welcomed by the Hinterland Community Band the guests first attended an auction of 3 portraits of Karmichael Hunt in the presence of the Rugby/AFL star. After that entertaining introduction Ros Bates MP, State Member for Mudgeeraba, officially opened the ceremony which was also attended by Cr Ted Shepherd (Div 9) and other distinguished members of the community. Then Dr Peter Ochsenbein, owner of the Foundation and Director of its Trustee Mudg Pty Ltd made donations to 9 local and regional organisations and institutions (total value: $22,200). For more details see Peter’s website ( au) which is presently being updated. Also sponsored by the Mudgeeraba Foundation was the prize money (total: $13,000) subsequently handed over to 7 artists by Earle Hinschen, founder and director of the exhibition who once again professionally organised the event together with a faithful and experienced team of hard working volunteers.
