The Laird Hotel in Collingwood has held its annual Mooning event as part of the 2011 Midsumma Festival celebrations, raising more than $6000 for the David Williams Fund.

The event, which features a cheeky display of male bottoms and an auction hosted by performer Mzzz Erin Tasmania, collects donations for the Victorian AIDS Council/Gay Men’s Health Centre (VAC/GMHC). Money from the entrance fee and the auctions went to the good cause.
