Tulips March fundraising roundup

International Woman’s Day – 8th March at The Mountain View Hotel and SeAngle Bar event on 7th March‏

 

By Carole King and Sue Tilt….

International Woman’s Day was on Sunday 8th March and to celebrate this event and also raise money for Tulips the Mountain View Hotel, Karaoğlanoğlu hosted aOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA ladies only celebration event for us, with 108 ladies attending. There was a meal, raffle, scratch cards and entertainment from Pete Murray.

The event, which was a sell out, started at 7.30 pm and every lady who attended received a silk purple tulip made from our Tulips workshop and a purple topped delicious mouthwatering mini muffin donated by Akpinar Patisserie, who generously donated 250, the remainder were sold.

We must say a huge thank you to the Mountain View Hotel and all their staff for working so hard on the night and for putting on a fabulous meal at only 60TL per head with 10TL per head being donated to Tulips/HTWCA – this alone raised 1,080TL! The Mountain View also provided one of over 40 raffle OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAprizes which was auctioned and raised a further 200TL.

Our thanks go to Barbara Willbye and Sev Kay for working so hard in organising this event and also, of course, the ‘handsome’ Pete Murray who donated his time for free and who worked so hard on the night to entertain 108 women!! We don’t know who enjoyed this more, Pete or the Ladies!

We would like to give special thanks to Mo, Brenda, Sue and Pam …… who worked non-stop on the night helping us with the selling of raffle tickets and scratch cards.

Finally we would like to thank our sponsors, without their generosity in providing raffle prizes we would not have been able to raise as much as we did, which was a fabulous 4,825.50 TL!!!!
