Our First Movie Night Fundraiser!

Posted 10/5/2018

 

Wow!  What a night!  Our first fundraiser was a huge success!

 

From everyone at Umbrella Dementia Cafés, we want to say a giant thank you for you support last Thursday in attending our first movie fundraising night.  Tully was certainly an emotional, thought provoking movie and I certainly shed a few tears upon reflection of the journey that the movie took me on.

 

Your generosity in attending the evening and through supporting the raffle has meant that we were able to raise a fantastic $2,396 for Umbrella Dementia Cafés, which will be used to support the creation of our not-for profit charity social enterprise.

 

We would like to once again say a big thank you to our sponsors for the evening who donated some fantastic raffle prizes, and to the Blackburn South Community Branch of Bendigo Bank for their fantastic donation of $1,500 towards our organisation. 

 

We look forward to hopefully seeing you at our next fundraising event so please watch out on social media and school newsletters.  All the photo's from the evening was posted on the Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/UmbrellaDementiaCafes/ later this week.  So check it out if you were there!

 

If anyone would like to know more about what we are doing, or would like to donate their time or some food for a café either at (Koonung Cottage or Blackburn One. Church) , then please do let me know.  We could not run our cafés without the support of our volunteers and the generosity of the local community.

Thank you, 

Kirsty Porter and Nicole Bruhn
