On Saturday the 18th October I was asked to be involved with a Breast Cancer Awareness Morning Tea Fundraiser which was held at Dulong near Maleny here on the Sunshine Coast.
The lady who organised the whole event was Tina Rossiter who runs The Natural Beauty Retreat. The event/morning tea was held on her property, and all the other stall holders were other home based/direct selling businesses from around the local area, the morning tea was $5 per person, I think Tina ended up with about 80 guests, mostly ladies!
Tina was putting together sample bags for everyone who attended on the day, so if you wanted to add anything about your business you had the chance. I made little matchbook holders in pink, when you opened it, I put a few lollies inside and put my details!
The were fantastic raffles which were also donated by local business and all proceeds were donated to Breast Cancer Awareness.
As this was the first time I had been involved with a fundraiser, I was unsure how things worked, but I thought I would see if Stampin' Up! would donate a few products for a great cause, so I was blown away when I arrived home one afternoon to find a HUGE box on my door step, when I opened it I was amazed at how much stock they had donated. I packaged them all up, I think in the end I ended up donating about 8 raffles. The first photo above is of all the raffles donated by Stampin' Up!
The second photo is of a bouquet of flowers I had made especailly for my stall to make it pretty, and this was down by iblossom. It was stunning and quite a few people commented on it also.
It was a fantastic organised event thanks to Tina and everyone had a lovely day!
