Handbags, bubbles, and beauty packages combined at this recent cancer fundraising event to provide some much needed funds for the ACRF.
Queensland’s Melita Holden gathered her girlfriends together and hosted a ‘Ladies Night In’ in support of the Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF). The group reasoned that they could donate to cancer research the money that they would normally spend on a night out!
To minimse the event costs, Melita managed to get all of the party essentials donated by generous local suppliers Dan Murphy, BWS, and Sam’s Warehouse.
She then invented a few games to spark the night’s entertainment. ‘Hand Bag Treasure Hunt’ and a novel balloon-popping game called ‘Pop and Spell’ were among the crowd-pleasers, as well as a a raffle through which a variety of beauty packages – which had been donated by salons from the local Mudgeeraba and Robina areas – were up for grabs.
“I was overwhelmed and so grateful for the local community support which helped to make the night a success.”
Furthermore, Melita and her friends had such an enjoyable time, that they would do it all again!
“I was so pleased and proud to be part of such a worthy course, and intend on conducting another fund raiser for this charity foundation next year.”
The ACRF would like to thank everyone who participated in Melita’s Ladies Night In. We love hearing about all of your creative cancer fundraising ideas.
