This past Saturday we held our annual Afternoon Teal event. This year it was Cheers for 5 Years, an Afternoon Teal at Braehead. Why Cheers for 5 Years? This year marks 5 years since mum’s surgery. In Australia, the overall five year survival rate for women diagnosed with ovarian cancer is 43%. In comparison, the overall five year survival rate for women diagnosed with breast cancer is 89%. Big difference. So it’s a big celebration year.
We had a lovely afternoon ….
and some seriously yummy food ….
There was a silent auction and I must thank some amazing people for donating – Rabbit Hole Organic Tea, Personal Planner, Little Finch, Flat Out Bottles, Popping Candy Shoes, Your Inspiration at Home, Braehead Crafts, and Hillwood Coffee Shop.
Speaking of the Hillwood Coffee Shop, they have been amazing and are hosting out 1000 ribbon challenge. The aim of the challenge is to sell 1000 ribbons for a gold coin donation and add them to our wall. So far we are just over 400. If you would like to donate and have a ribbon (or 2) added, please get in contact and I’ll send you my paypal. I’ll send you a photo of me adding your ribbon to our wall.
The finally tally is yet to come in but at the end of the day we had gone over my $2000 target. My donation page is still open if you wish to add to the total 😉
