An article in last week’s Advertiser (October 12), headed
“Candidates clangers come thick and fast”, stated that
Michael Whelan, a candidate in the 2016 Bass Coast Council
elections, had used a digitally altered image on Facebook of a
Stand Alone sign next to a land for sale sign, to illustrate the
point he was making.
Mr Whelan states that the photo was not digitally altered.
The Advertiser apologises unreservedly to Mr Whelan for the
incorrect comment made, and for the distress this
Daniher Drive raises over $1 million
A four day road-trip extravaganza around
Victoria, held to raise much needed aware-
ness and funds to find a cure for Motor Neu-
rone Disease, finished with great fanfare at
the Cowes oval on Sunday afternoon.
There were 71 vehicles involved in the four
day event-in its second year and with next
year’s now in the planning.
It attracts profile sportspeople including
footballers and cricketers, and the extended
Participants gathered on the Cowes oval to
wind-up the drive, and awards were made
for the teams that raised the most money.
The winning team raised $49,000!
Neil Daniher, suffering from MND, and de-
termined to raise as much money as he pos-
sibly can to find a cure, was at the forefront,
with his upbeat attitude and joie de vivre an
inspiration to everyone.
He was joined by a large and enthusiastic
family, former AFL playing mates, friends
and members of our local community.
A gala Roaring 40’s night was held at the
Silverwater Resort, with 300 guests celebrat-
ing together on the previous night.
Guests included participants in the Drive,
as well as many local people who wanted to
also support this great cause.
Dressed to impress, guests partied the
night away and had a ball.
Kristien Formosa, Principal at Ray White in Cowes, was a participant in last week’s Dani-
her Drive, as a member of the Ray White Regional team. Kristien, who is pictured with Neale
Daniher at a stopover in Inverloch, found the entire event to be inspiring.
The Phillip Island Football club was on hand on Sunday to help with food and beverages, as
well as setting up activities on the oval for the kids. Pictured are some of the island’s junior
footy players, who had a great time playing kick to kick session with some former AFL greats,
former Melbourne players and teammates from left David Neitz and Russell Robinson. Neale
Daniher was their coach. Terry Daniher (right) ex Essendon captain, is also pictured.
It’s not every day we have a TV reporter
on the local footy ground, and Bella Ross,
Sophie Gysberts and Max Taylor introduced
Seb Costello, son of Peter Costello, was re-
porting the event for the Channel Nine news
Neale Daniher is pictured saying thankyou
to chefs on the Rotary barbecue at the Cowes
oval on Sunday, for their efforts in helping to
keep the hundreds present well fed.
Rotary raised $560 for Danihers Drive
through the sausage sizzle for participants
and supporters on the day.
Neale is pictured with Pam Rothfield (right)

Australia Test cricketer Shane Watson
played a charity match in Sale en route to
Cowes as a participant on the Daniher’s
Drive; and then spent Sunday morning meet-
ing the local kids on the Cowes oval, much
to their delight. Shane is pictured with local
fans Sophie Gysberts (left) and Bella Ross.
Rotarian Brian Holloway is pictured with Terry (left) and Chris (right) Daniher at the
