The Love in Action book launch event was a huge success. Over 200 guests came to celebrate the launch event at the Novotel Manly Pacific on Friday 31 July 2009. The event was a celebration of the efforts of the Manly community for the work done to date in support of the people living in poverty in Manado.
Speeches were made by Ken Duncan OBE, Mike Baird MP, Jean Hay AM and the creator of Love in Action, Stuart Harris. Amongst the guests was the Acting Consul-General Mr Pratito Soeharyo and the Manadonese community group of Sydney, KMMK.
Guests had the opportunity to be the first to view Love in Action, and purchase limited edition framed prints by photographer Stuart Harris, creator of Love in Action. All images were photographed on location in Manado, Indonesia. Profits made from the sale of these limited edition photographs will be donated to Manly-Manado. A certificate of authenticity will be provided with every limited edition photograph sold. The exhibition continues to be on view until Wednesday 5 August 2009.
Special thanks to our sponsors, Novotel Manly Pacific, Strategic Minds Communications and Art Smart for making it such a fabulous evening.
