The Bates Benefit. TWO SUCCESSFUL CONCERTS. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 16 May 1914
The Bates Benefit. TWO SUCCESSFUL CONCERTS. After many weeks of good and strenuous work on the part of the committee, the Bates' benefit has come to a very successful termina- tion. A concert was held in the Prah- ran A.N.A. Hall on Monday evening, and another at the same place on Wednesday evening, and there were crowded attendances on both occa- sions to listen to attractive pro- grammes. The net financial result, it is confidently anticipated, will run into three figures. Mr. Zoe Solomon, chairman of committee, if he were built that way—we know he isn't— would have every right to throw a few choice bouquets at himself. He always keeps his committee together exquisitely, coaxes them, delivers homely orations on how to do things that should be done, and how not to do things that shouldn't be done, and in many other ways can convert a man with a heart of stone into a loyal, true and charitable worker. These are just a few of the attributes possessed by Mr. Zoe Solomon. Of course, th...
