6 Live performances. 34 Performers. 1 Extraordinary cause. 

A warm thank you to everyone who made it down last Friday 12 August for Subiaco Rotaract's costume party of the year, Urban Jungle!  We had an amazing turnout of over 200 guests that came down to the Claremont dressed as gorillas, hunters, bananas and all manner of wild things! 
The upstairs of the Claremont was tranformed into a secret, lush green escape for a one night extravaganza of live performances including fire performers, African drummers and dancers, Brazilian Samba, AND we raised a total of over $4200 in net proceeds for APOPO HeroRATs!
