Look what I won!!

I told you all about the High Tea fundraiser I went to last week…….well after I left the garden (we left early to go to the beach house for the weekend) I won the raffle. I won this gorgeous black clock so I took it to the beach house this weekend  and found a home for it!!! It will always remind me of my dear friend who has passed away. The fund raising afternoon raised an amazing $10,000.00!  Such an unbelievable amount from an amazing group of friends. It just goes to prove what a special person our friend was. Another of her friends recently completed in the annual city to surf fun run to raise money for cancer research. She works for a mining company who agreed to match the amount of money she raised. She did such an incredible job and raised $13,000.00 herself so her employer matched that and increased the donation to $26,000.00.
$36,000.00 all for cancer research in memory of this beautiful lady.

Very admirable, the fund raisers for your dear friend. I just found out that an old friend of mine has cancer -- a bad one, and I am so sad about it.
