Last night I had my elaborately named birthday/farewell/fundraiser party! And it went swimmingly!
I cannot thank the people who attended enough! Their love and support really showed through and I just could not stop smiling.
I raised a couple of hundred dollars extra for my cause, but most importantly, I raised awareness for the Climb2Remember and the wonderful charity I’m doing it for, Alzheimer’s Australia NSW.
The party wasn’t all about the fundraiser – it was also a celebration of my birthday (which is next week August 20th) and also my leaving Sydney for my new home town, Melbourne. This was to be the last weekend for perhaps 2 months that I’d be up in Sydney so I wanted to make the most of it and why not kill 3 birds with 1 stone and have a MULTI theme/ reason party.
I loved catching up with my friends and family in the gorgeous Club Bar of the CBD Hotel. The venue was fab and I was really impressed with the staff, the food and the room itself. A pool table, bright red walls with stylish map shdes and a very shabby chic antiquey feel to it. Definitely somewhere I would book again and a lovely place to spend time with friends.

So my fundraising page is now at $3500 – only $25 from my minimum fundraising target set by Alzheimer’s Australia NSW for the climb. I’m so pleased and just can’t wait to see the total keep going up and up as the time approaches.
I love to Party and I think having a celebration such as the one last night was a great way to say Happy Birthday, All the best for the move and Good luck for the big adventure! So thanks to those who said it!!
I will be taking on my biggest Adventure yet, Climbing Kilimanjaro for Alzheimer’s Australia NSW! I will Climb Kilimanjaro in honour of my Grandpa who passed away from Alzheimer’s in 2008. I was in Africa when I found out and I said at the time I would one day do this for him, in his memory! We are raising money for Alzheimer’s Australia NSW to raise awareness and the necessary funds for prevention of the disease that affects so many. Dementia is the third leading cause of death in Australia, after heart disease and stroke. We must prevent and find a cure as it’s not a normal part of aging, and does affect 100,000’s of Australians.
