From Morning Tea to belle of the ball
We’ve got a great example of community spirit down in Eastlakes in the guise of Mary Urgate.
For the past few years, Mary has organised the local version of the “Biggest Morning Tea”, where people get together and raise money for Cancer Council NSW. She’s raised over $13,000 for this really worthwhile organisation. Mary was moved to get involved when a close friend and some of her family were stricken with cancer – and she is certainly making a difference in her support for Cancer Council NSW. Not content with what she’s done to date, Mary is about to venture into event organisation on a grander scale than an office or home morning tea.
To raise money – and have a bit of fun – Mary will take us to the ball. She’s organising a Black & White Ball for May 21 and everyone from our City is invited. For $120 a head (or $1100 for a table of ten) you get to have a great night with a four course meal, wine, beer and soft drinks topped off with live entertainment. The Black & White Ball in support of Cancer Council NSW will be held at Conca D’oro Events Centre at 269 Belmore Road, Riverwood with drinks at 7.00pm and dinner at 7.30pm. This event is worth supporting and if you’d like to get a ticket (or reserve a table) you can by contacting Mary on 0419 420 805 or 9667 2478 or via email at email@example.com
