Our guests made a variety of projects using the Hearts Come Home stamp set.
Our welcome table held everyone's bags with their kits inside.
We had a fantastic display of cards and 3D items to inspire everyone for Christmas!
Stampin' Up! donate a box of goodies for our raffle. This takes our fundraising total through the roof! Caroline did a great job setting these out. The white board was a perfect back drop.
Caroline is pictured with my hubby who sold raffle tickets, along with my son. Blake and Zac also help set up all the tables and chairs for me!
And we were off and racing! That's me at my table with my ladies!
Don't mess with Angela and her brayer!
Jenny in deep concentration!
The best part of the day is that people have a chance to get together and craft...
The event is held at Nadene's church. They are so wonderful in helping us and giving is the space for free.
Jennifer was able to bring along her mum Frances.
The kitchen was run by Marg and Dawn. Nanna Marg is undergoing chemo AND able to prepare our lunches!
Thanks Angela for organising some flowers for me at the end! She is my FIXER, RIGHT HAND LADY and everything in between! She is a no nonsense team member who thinks for me when my brain is full and gets stuck in to get things DONE! I missed the opportunity to get a photo of her vacuuming at the end!
All up we raised $1166.
This will be used for
- maintaining our footprint card boxes at Gold Coast University Hospital, John Flynn Hospital and Gold Coast Private Hospital.
- maintaining our craft kit boxes at John Flynn Hospital and hopefully expanding this program
- contributing to Gold Coast University Hospital's Children's Memory Day which will be held on November 18th 2017. Our contribution will help with catering for this event.
- mother/baby books at John Flynn - this is a new project that we have been asked to help with! I have made two for a fast track request but we will be having a working bee to make more some time soon.
I will keep you posted with pics and receipts of where your generous donations are going.
Thanks again to everyone who helped to prepare and run this event. It really is a team effort!
Thanks for stopping by! Pics of the projects to come!
