Arcare Pimpama recently turned one!
On Friday the 25th of October, Arcare Pimpama celebrated their first birthday by hosting an official birthday event.
However, some team members had started the party celebrations much earlier.
The birthday celebration was held in the main foyer and was open to the whole Arcare Pimpama community, including clients, friends, families and team members.
As the guests walked down the famous purple Arcare carpet to the front door, they were greeted with an art exhibition by the famous artist Jilly Gray.
Jilly had only recently returned from the Maldives to hold her first art exhibition since her return.
The evening kicked off with live music by Lachlan Barry, which included the classic hits from Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley and modern Michael Bublé.
Not only did guests relax to the music, but they were also given the opportunity to enjoy wine, beer and appetisers prepared specially by Arcare Pimpama’s very own chef.
As the evening celebrations continued, a local professional photographer was busy capturing many happy moments during this momentous occasion.
To close off the party celebrations with a bang, we invited the first two clients who had moved in to Arcare Pimpama, Iris Cretan and Irene McAleese to cut the birthday cake together.
The evening was full of joy, happiness and laughter all around.
Happy Birthday to Arcare Pimpama!
