HOLLYWOOD faux pas and foibles were laid bare by insider Richard Reid at a Cairns Post Cairns Club event in early June. The master of glitzy gossip regaled a full house at the Reef Hotel Casino with star-studded tales of scandal.
The entertainment guru on Channel 9’s Today show for eight years, Mr Reid was the keynote speaker at the third event for the 2017/2018 season.
An internationally renowned entertainment correspondent, Mr Reid is one of the most sought-after personalities in Australian television, radio and print.
Held at the The Reef Hotel Casino in June, guests included Cairns Regional Council mayor Bob Manning and, as a guest of event sponsor Audi Centre Cairns, the managing director of Audi Australia Paul Sansom.
Guests mingled with an approachable Mr Reid after the formal proceedings and many were keen to prolong the festivities, kicking on afterwards downstairs at BAR36.
The Cairns Post Club event, hosted by actor and television personality Sofie Formica, raised $3810 for the Foundation.
Audi Centre Cairns co-owner Connie Ren said the event was well-run. “Everyone seemed to really like it,” she said.
“It is very important for us to support the Far North Queensland Hospital Foundation. We are very grateful for the opportunity and it was a wonderful opportunity for people to connect with each other.”
A couple of our star volunteers - Lee Oastler and Thelma Spelta were on hand to assist with selling tickets.
