‘Bogans and Darlings Unite for Muscular Dystrophy QLD.’
January 26, 2013 @ 2:00 am - 5:00 pm$50
I wanted to let you know about my fundraising event happening on Australia Day 26 January at the New Farm Croquet Centre (Dixon Street). The event is called Bogans and Darlings Unite for Musular Dystrophy Qld and YES this menas you dress up as either a ‘Bogan’ or a ‘Darling’ (think ‘wife-beater’ singlets, thongs, footy shorts, tutus, maxi dresses, pearls, etc. For some of you this will mean just wearing your normal, everyday attire!’) The event is designed to be a low-key affair where we can all enjoy some bubbles, beer and a BBQ, with a side of Croquet, whilst hopefully raising some funds to purchase 1-2 sets of power- assist wheels for Muscular Dystrophy QLD.
I believe that you get in life what you have the courage to ask for and as hard as this is for me I am asking for your help, your time and your financial support.
Muscular Dystrophy QLD is a registered charity therefore all donations are tax deductible http://www.mdqld.org.au/
(Please note you must use my name ‘Karni Liddell’ when making your donations to ensure the money goes towards the wheels). I am not going to be able to raise all the money at the event, so I am hoping for the people who work in larger corporations to be generous enough to start selling me raffle tickets from next week.
Every little bit will help – “if you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito!” By giving people with muscle diseases 365 days of the year with the peace of mind of knowing that they will always have a wheelchair is a gift I would love to deliver. I will be selling tickets to the event next week and I am hoping to send out the raffle books ASAP so if you are able to help me out here please send me your postal addresses.
