A mammoth Thank You!


 I have been itching to write this post...
To finally announce the final amount of funds raised...
To say THANK YOU to everyone who got behind me in my attempt to raise $5000 for the Leukaemia Foundation.

So now I am absolutely delighted to inform you all that I have managed to raise over $10000 for the Leukaemia Foundation. Without all of the kind donations, sponsorship, support, grand gestures and actual actions from many a kind stranger, acquaintances, ever supportive friends and loving family members there is little doubt that I would not have made it to $5000...still can't quite believe I managed to double my goal.

Without the generous time and sponsorship from the following people the Trivia Night and Art exhibition would not have even been possible:
Rhapsody Boheme Hair, Clarity Business Services and Dusk to Dawn Celebrant Deborah Scott kindly sponsored the Empowerment Art Exhibition. Your sponsorship covered the costs of the gallery hire and without the space there is no way I could have held a show. Art & Design Precinct kindly gave me the space for half of the price and did not take any commission on the sale of artwork.

The incredible P&F members of St Joseph Tobruk Memorial School organised the liquor licence, the bar and took part in the rounds of Trivia and of course St Josephs for lending me the hall for the night free of charge. The Trivia Night in February managed to raise $1500 for the Leukaemia Foundation.

Thank you to all of businesses that donated prizes for the raffle. Thanks to your kindness I managed to raise over $2000 from raffle ticket sales alone.
Thank you to all of the wonderful artists that entered works into the EMPOWERMENT exhibition, to those that donated pieces and to the incredible staff at Art & Design Precinct. 9 artworks were sold and 18 works were bid on in the Silent Auction raising a staggering $3000+

I have many individual thank you notes to post out and I won't keep you waiting much longer.
so THANK YOU AGAIN to everyone that offered to help, that came along to any of the events, that paid to cut off a chunk of my hair,  that shared my link for sponsorship online and to all of you who gave what you could.

Having seen what the Leukaemia Foundation does with the money donated, I have every bit of faith that we have managed to help out many people who have been unfortunately affected by this horrible disease.

I look forward to giving more of my time to this charity in the near future.
If you missed out on donating or wish to see the final amount and many messages of support here is the more time:

Here are some more of the pictures from actual shave.
