Pinktober – A Lovely Occasion

By November 2, 2014 No Comments

What a lovely occasion we had today! We turned the Cafe Pink in October to honour the estimated 15,270 women that will be diagnosed with breast cancer.

Chef Eric designed a Pink Menu, with healthy pink food comprising an entree, main and dessert. We had Pink Drinks to sip on, and some Pink Baking in our desserts cabinet. Part of each sale was donated to the Cindy MacKenzie Foundation which supports women and their families living with breast cancer.and the Mater hospital breast cancer research. While enjoying some delicious foods and drinks, we raised $500 from the food sales.

On the 31st of October a group of our wonderful customers came to our Pink Morning Tea where we sold some of our pink raffle tickets and drew the prizes for the Cindy McKenzie Pinktober fundraiser. People dressed in pink and ate lovely food.

We were blessed today with lovely speeches and beautiful Harp music from Harpnotica. They donated their time for our worthy cause. Thank you so much!

Nikki came and touched everyones heart when she talked about her experiences with cancer. Thanks to everyone we raised over $3000 for this worthy cause. We understand there are 26 families being supported by the foundation at present. This may help to bring a little sparkle their way.

Thank you to everyone who supported our Paint October Pink Campaign. We raised over $3000 for this worthy cause. We understand there are 26 families being supported by the foundation at present. This may help to brighten their livestock.

Finally to all of my staff who supported by selling tickets and word of mouth and to my special office team Deb, Sarah and Jen who helped with promoting by creating flyers and helping today with the organisation of the morning tea. To Sarah who ran the day for me and did such a good job.

The day made everyone feel good for being able to help people who need support from their Community.
