Family Fun Day in support of The Burtonís at Bellambie Hotel!
Friday, 8th January 2010
From the organizer, Jodie Winterfield:
Jodi and I worked together at Bellambi Hotel for 5 years together, she is truly a wonderful person. Just so easy going. Always had a great time working together, she always showed general interest in customers lives, asked about their families and how they have been, very compassionate, someone indeed I do look up to an learned from. Unfortunately once we started having kids we lost touch, but I would always hear through the grapevine how she was. Because I can tell you she certainly knows a lot of people. But she is the type of person whom you would not see for 3 months but it was like you just spoke yesterday. That is one of the reasons I wanted to do this for them. If we don't step up then who will?
What originally was going to be a small raffle, after having discussions with a patron one Friday night, by the end of the evening he already had prizes donated then it just snowballed from there. I sent out over 250 letters throughout Wollongong and Sydney and received over 60 prizes. A fantastic response. Then the local patrons began donating items to be auctioned.
So there was $2090 made from the Silent Auction and the rest from the raffle tickets and general donations with a total of $7000 raised from the Burton Family.
Jodi asked that any other money raised on the day to go to Cure Our Kids.
We had a Jumping Castle, Sausage Sizzle (the sausages were donated by Ziem Butchers and the bread donated from East Corrimal Bakery) Face Painter who donated 50% of her profits, Lolly Bags and a soft drink stand which raised $600 for Cure Our Kids.
It was a wonderful day the weather was beautiful. It started at 2pm and went to 5pm, but people still stayed well after the raffle was drawn and the Jumping Castle was deflated. The kids were wonderful and well behaved. We really wanted this day to be a Thank you to all of Jodi’s friends and family who supported them through this difficult time and the local patrons for all their support, from buying tickets to dropping change into the collection jar.
