Don’t forget that 64 Roses Day is on the 27th May (don’t worry…I wont let you forget! You will probably be sick of me by the time that date rolls around!)
Our fundraising campaign is coming together nicely. We have at least two butchers donating sausages towards our sausage sizzle, and a local bakery is donating half a dozen loaves of bread.
I have tried to shake down some florists, and have found one who is already involved in 65 Roses Day by donating a portion of their roses sales toward CFWA (Cystic Fibrosis Association, Western Australia) but they have pledged a couple of rose bouquets for us to sell. That is fantastic!
Our nearby convenience store is a liquor/bakery/cafe/fuel station, and they have pledged something from their bottle shop towards our raffle. It will more than likely be some wine or something, but anything is greatly appreciated! We are regular customers, and all the staff know about our son’s condition. One staff member had a possible CF child herself (though it was later discovered after testing that it wasnt CF). So they are more than happy to get on board.
If there are any readers out there, especially local ones, who would like to donate some produce or services towards our raffle, please let me know. It would be great if you could get on board.
But you don’t have to wait until 65 Roses Day to donate, you can donate online here (don’t forget, tax refundable!)
I will keep you updated as plans come together.
If you are in Albany on the 27th May, come down to Western Workwear and Safety on Chesterpass Road for lunch, meet the family, and you have to be in it to win it for the raffle!
