    I just wanted to update everyone on the outcome of our raffle sales at Klubfest.

    Our chosen charity was guide dogs Qld and they sent along two ticket sellers and a beautiful black Labrador guide dog mascot Xavier.They have already said they would love to come back next year and will bring an extra helper along with them.
    We raised a total of $702 from ticket sales and donation from Stevie from the purchase of a painting at Eden.
    I have approached a few different people asking for donations for prises for next year,hit them while the iron is hot I say.With all the publicity on the TV,radio and papers I thought now was a good time while it is fresh in everyone minds.
    Well so far that has paid off with Dream world saying they will supply us a family pass to dream world and one to white water world.This is a fantastic start so hopefully by next year we will have a great bunch of prises.
    Put Klubfest in your calender for next year it will be worth it.

    Onya Michelle - that's great news. Well done. :) I could even bring Cleo my black lab with me next year and pretend she's a guide dog too. She's far too lazy to do anything naughty, so she'd be a perfect ambassador for them.

    Well done! Really brightens the soul to come on here somedays and see how much the KC contributes to the community, not just in a monetary way either, through support, acknowledgement and empathy.

    Today is one of those days :)

    It was a great effort by all involved.
    Thanks must also go to Bowdens Car care products and Hooters restauant for the raffle prizes they donated.
