Peninsula-based group, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, have shared details about their annual fundraiser at the Rotary Club of Woy Woy’s meeting on March 16.
The five-woman group, who describe themselves as ‘just a bunch of mums who want to give back to the local community’, announced their event which has been scheduled for October 24.
The fundraiser will be Wild West-themed and will have a range of activities available on the night for attendees to help boost their fundraising efforts.
Tickets are expected to cost $85 and will include a three-course meal at Ettalong Diggers.
The group’s Belinda Player, Margaret Channing and Julie Webb, discussed their humble beginnings as a small school fundraiser, before they outgrew the hall with attendance doubling each year.
Club president Joan Redmond credited the group for their ‘unique and fresh fundraising efforts’ in supporting local cancer programs.
“This group was a recipient at our Community Service Awards night last year and came to tell the story of their fundraising over the past 12 years,” Redmond said.
They showed us photos of the themed dinners they have run for the past 10 years and the spectacular costumes worn by guests to their sell-out events.
“These ladies have raised $135,000.00 in the past 12 years – a fantastic effort – and full credit to them for their dedication, hard work, they have fun loving natures, and they are simply lovely people.”
All funds raised on the night will be diverted locally to help families on the Central Coast.
