Pink Days in Bloom Fundraiser
Pink Days In Bloom
August 16, 17 and 18 We held a Pink Days In Bloom Fundraiser.
Pink Days In Bloom unique fundraiser was the brain child of Linda Ryan, A breast cancer survivor from Newfoundland and Labrador. Linda enjoys gardening and finds her time spent in the garden to be healing, so while on medical leave from work under going treatment for breast cancer, Linda focused her energy on building a gardening fundraiser.
Leading up to the event we asked our customers to bring in their old bras and if we reached 1000 bras then Oceanview would donate $1000.00 we quickly surpassed the 1000 mark.
We also sold tickets for $5.00 each with only 500 tickets printed and all 500 sold. First prize was a set of Canadian Recycled Plastic adirondack chairs with side table valued at $800.00, Second prize was a concrete statue of a portrait of Mother Nature from Cast Art Studios valued at $329.99 and third prize was a $100 gift card for Trees and Shrubs.
We also raised money by having a yard sale which we donated 25% of sales, we had special "pink" merchandise we donated 25% of sales from, we had two barbeques, a donation can and a Chinese auction raffle draw.
Our Fundraising total was $5715.60. We couldn't have done this without our customers support so from our heart to yours Thank you so very much!
