Well girlies - last night was fantastic.
I hosted my 3rd "Girls Night In" event. It was bigger than big!!!!!!
I have been working away all week to get organised and nearly wore myself out but it was all worth it. This was all happening with my face on the front of the local newspaper too mind you. So many people came up to me and commented about it - I'm still in shock I think!!!!
The night kicked off at 7pm - everyone came dressed in something pink - it was so nice to look around the table at pink - one of my fave colours!!!
One of my friends handed me an envelope - she said I was to read it out. My first questions was "Is it embarassing?" She said "No - go on read it out!". I read it out and to my amazement her husband mentioned at his Tuesday staff meeting that I was holding a special night for Breast Cancer and he urged people to put some money in to go towards my night. I was very touched by this and totally shocked. He managed to raise $205.00. How cool is that? I was trying not to cry - I had goosebumps all over me. What a great start for the night.
I managed to rustle up some prizes for raffles - they were popular. There were raffle tickets everywhere and I also organised a "Lucky Ticket" prize. Everyone went home lucky - that was nice to see.
Picture this - 17 people in a SMALL kitchen measuring approximately 3 x 3 metres. It was very up close and personal. We just managed to squeeze in. It was a matter of putting your hand up if you wanted something. At one stage I heard "Stamp Pad to the fridge please, stamp pad to the fridge!!!!!! LOL. Great way of getting what you wanted though.
I stood there at one stage and was very proud - I am very blessed to have so many nice friends willing to join in the fun and raise money for such a great foundation.
Unfortunately, I didn't take any photos myself - however a couple of the girlies took some so as soon as I can I shall share a photo with you.
After everyone left - 11.30pm we counted up the money and we managed a grand total of $425.00. I was pumped. This is totally amazing from one little night with a handful of girlies.
Thank you to all of my dear friends for your great efforts.
Everyone was already talking about next year. I'm thinking I may have to change venues!!!!!! LOL.
Bye for now.
