On Friday 1st June 2012 Mum’s and Dad’s, Grandma’s and Grandpa’s as well as toddlers and teddy bear’s gathered at the beautiful Balyang Sanctuary to participate in our Teddy Bear’s Picnic for Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea.
Fortunately the weather was glorious, although fresh, and all involved had a wonderful time. Dazzling Dan the Magic Man donated his time to entertain, James from Caffe Vita kept us warm with his coffee and his generous donation,and the raffle was a great success, thanks to all our fantastic donors.
Jo, from Jo Shannon Photography kindly volunteered to take some snaps for the day, which turned out a treat.
We raised $406.00 for The Cancer Council, which was very pleasing, given it is the first time organising an event. I would like to thank everybody who came along and participated in the day, my sister Demelza for her time and effort, my parents for helping out, Lauren for coming all the way from Melbourne to volunteer and Jo for taking photos. Thanks also go to our donors: John Garner, Dandelion & Honey, Lilac Apple, Little Nest Furniture, Anne and Peter Fuller and Grandma’s Bottom Drawer in Garden Street, East Geelong.
Thanks also to The Geelong News and The Geelong Advertiser for featuring our event.
