This was our first big presentation in the Elgin County area. Our event location was provided by Laurie Goodhue & the weather was absolutely beautiful. We chose to host a Breast Cancer Awareness Day simply because it seemed fitting that an organization like us should shed light on a disease like breast cancer.
Our day started at 7:30 am on October 16, 2010 with the arrival of the participating vendors. The vendors included: Absolute Wellness Spa, Wood Dragon Reiki, Tupperware, Pampered Chef, Harbourtown Soap Co. Party Lite, Murch Gems, Steeped Tea, Stitch N Time, Art by Robin Barrat, Xocia Healthy Chocolate, Arbonne Organic Cosmetics, Enjo & Mary Kay Cosmetics. Each vendor showed their wonderfully giving nature by donating beautiful gift baskets to our draw table. We had many local business donate to our raffle table, they included: Beanery Cafe & Bistro, Hair Stop Hair Stylist Rhonda Wall & Michelle Boutilier, The Hair Stop, Sally Beauty~St. Thomas location, Gredig Orchards, Sweet Stuff cake creations~Kitchener. Some Princess Project Supporters also gave donations to our event: Betty Gropp, Laurie Goodhue, Joyce Trimble, Andy Goodhue, Mabel Haycock & volunteer services provided by East Elgin Secondary School students Brooke, Kalene & Jordyn. Coffee was donated by Starbucks Coffee, Gateway Road, Kitchener & the Mulled Cider provided by Laurie Goodhue.
Our day not only being beautiful weather wise was a giant success. Our fundraising tables raised $500, they included the nail polish change (all products provided by Absolute Wellness Spa), face painting (all products provided by Wood Dragon Reiki), the In Memory/Support of Balloon Bouquet (all products provided by Wood Dragon Reiki) & our delicious Bake Sale Table (all baked goods provided by Laurie Goodhue, Joyce Trimble, Midge Holden, Deb Kelliher & Jody Goodhue).
