Art Fundraiser Review
Wow! What a great day. I held my fundraiser today for my trip with International China Concern in the summer. I both love and dread these events - mostly because I fear no one will turn up. However, today I had a lot of visitors (with a convenient break for lunch).
It was great to catchup up with friends I haven't seen for a while, as well as meet some new folks and see those who are willing to support me in the work I'll be doing - I'm so very grateful for all their contributions both great and small.
I displayed my work around the downstairs of my house, bags, art work, brooches and some books and videos that we just needed to get rid of. I sold loads, it's probably been one of the most successful fundraisers I've had. Thank you everyone.
It's great to know I have some wonderful friends -(thank you Julie, Eddie, Anita, Cath, Liz, Eva, Angela, Roger, Carol, Helen & friends, Paul, Maureen, Albert, Pam, Fiona, Richard, Louise, Victoria, Hannah, Fiona, Barbara, Cathryn, Ken and everyone else that came too)
