Wheelchair for Scarlett appeal

George 6 August 2009 15

Some very good people around town have got together to raise some money for a special little girl – Scarlett who needs a wheelchair. We all know Canberra has a big heart so please come along to the Hellenic Club and support this fundraiser. The Hellenic Club are very kindly hosting the function for free. Please send this invite around to your family and friends.

There was a line stretching all the way up the stairs and down into the foyer. Some people had to wait ten minutes to get in! It was great to see tables from all three political parties. John Hargreaves passed a hat around and raised another couple of hundred dollars. I also saw Amanda Bresnan, Alistair Coe, Jeremy Hanson and Brendan Smyth and a few Rioters such as Qwerky, Jessieduck and Disposable, and BerraBoy68 of course. It was really nice of Steve Doszpot to organise this, and incredibly generous of the Hellenic Club to donate their best room. The crowd wouldn’t have fitted in a smaller room – somewhere around 400 people I think. The Kevin Bacon Fan Club put in a pretty decent showing without their resident astrophysicist, too, I thought!

Just wanted to thank the organisers for a great night out- congratulations on the number of tables you had and I hope the fundraising hit the target and gets Scarlett a hot new set of wheels!

The appeal for Scarlett has been overwhelming. We really feel we now may have a good chance to raise the considerable money needed to purchase her a wheelchair.

Many people are telling us they can’t make the Trivia Night but would like to contribute something so we now have the Rotary Club of Canberra City on board to help us receive and bank donations.

We have an incredible night organised so please still try and come along. Let me know if you’ll be attending if you have not already done so.

Alternatively please send a small donation to Wheelchair for Scarlett, PO Box 426 Calwell ACT 2905.

Make cheques/money orders payable to “Wheelchair for Scarlett – Rotary Club of Canberra City”.

Also we would be grateful if anyone can donate a gift what we could give out as a prize on the night. Please let me know and I’ll arrange a pick up.
