Drum Roll Please Maestro

I have just spent the last few minutes writing out slips of paper bearing the namesĀ  [ in multiples of $10 donation ] of all those wonderful people who supported the Castlemaine Relay for Life.

Only one person was going to take home the Forest Canopy Shawl

and that lucky person is …

[ drum roll ]

Merv Carr

who has four lovely daughters, any one of whom would probably love to relieve him of the shawl.





Friday Night

This was the scene at the Opening Ceremony for this year’s Castlemaine Cancer Council Relay for Life.

Apologies for the darknessĀ  and graininess of the footage but it was taken in full dark with just my little point-and-press cheapie camera

The current total *raised by our little team of disabled adults, their parents / Carers, and support staff is slightly over $500 [ $200 above our goal ]

Of that Nadie and I – with your help – raised $330.

So many thanks to everyone who has donated.

I’ll blog about the experience tomorrow as well as announcing the person who will be taking home the alpaca lace shawl.

You still have time to donate, and to be in the drawing for the shawl if you’d like to [ link in the alpaca shawl post above ]

* The 14 teams involved have , so far, raised $16,000+ dollars and the final total will be higher, as this only counts the monies actually banked before the Opening Ceremony.
