On October 26th, the NSW team did a wonderful job selling merchandise and collecting donations for TOP at the well known annual Cruelty Free Festival. It was a terrific day, although some of the volunteers preferred it at Belmore Park where it used to be held for many years. They raised almost $1200, well done guys!
Dangar Island Cocktail Party
We spent a lovely afternoon by Peter & Lynda's pool last Saturday afternoon, opposite the beautiful Hawksbury River, 2 storms, very hot weather, gorgeous cocktails & an afternoon full of meeting new people, & raising almost $4,000!! Well done Lynda and Peter, no expense was spared. Thankyou so much to (from the left), Phoebe, Peter, Deb Sunartha, (myself) & Deb Moxam, as well as Val, Alwyn and Phoebe's partner for all coming. Alwyn has made the most beautiful Stirling orangutan necklaces for $60 which we sold 3, & one will be a raffle prize in Leif Cocks' raffle. (more info on that soon). The setting was just like a day in the Sumatran rain forest!!
