It was smiles all round when Singleton Cancer Appeal Committee, president, Kay Sullivan accepted a donation from the Broke Fordwich Wine and Tourism Association for $3226 to fund her organisation’s vital work in providing facilities and services for cancer patients at Singleton Hospital.
And there was more with Sydney based glass wholesaler Case e Cucina principals Quentin Robertson and Jenny Westrup on hand to donate a further $200 to the Committtee.
Their business had also supported the fundraiser by the Broke Fordwich group by providing the glassware used at the Little Bit of Italy weekend at a discounted rate to ensure maximum monies were raised for the Committee.
“We gave $2 from each glass of wine sold to the Singleton Cancer Appeal Committee and glasses were sold during the weekend and they were included in the Committee’s raffle so we are very grateful to Case e Cucina for their support,” said Barb Brown, Ascella Wines, Milbrodale.
“Members of our Association have used the facilities funded by the Committee at the hospital and it was with great pleasure we were able to make this donation towards their work.
“Its really is something close to our hearts and their work is invaluable to our community.”
Mrs Sullivan thanked the Association and Case e Cucina Glassware for their donation adding Little Bit of Italy was a fabulous weekend.
“I loved the event – it should be a must for everyone,” she said.
The next major fundraiser for the Committee will be held on Wednesday June 20th from 7:30pm at Club Singleton with the performance by hypnotist Gerard V. Tickets are $40/head available from the Club
