Tulips: Help Those With Cancer Association..
The 1st Tulips fashion show with cancer patients and cancer survivors as models was an overwhelming success.
Our models (of which 3 are still currently undergoing treatment) were so brave coming out in front of an audience of 120 people. Most of our models had never done anything like this before and were incredibly nervous leading up to the event, however, all said after that they had thoroughly enjoyed it. We have to say a huge thank you to all our models: Jane Boreham with her granddaughter Millie Temple helping, Barbara Osborne, Joan Gillin, Linda Roy, Michelle Martin, Carole Dovey, Pam Schofield, Sue Steel, Jane Nubley, Maureen Swayne, Nicky Montgomery, Remziye Bekir and our only male model of the evening Mehmet Emin Yanik who all made the show the success that it was.
The show was opened with 8 year old twins, Asya and Sahra Aytac both of whom looked absolutely radiant dancing in their wedding outfits which they have decided to donate to Tulips to sell to make money for cancer patients.
We also have to thank Juliana Jefferson who helped choreograph the show, Katie B who compered the first part of the evening, Karl Rugg who auctioned our evening dresses and prizes, Amore Tanning and Beauty who answered our appeal on facebook for someone to help with the hair and makeup of our models, Dawn Buyukertas and Auriana Stevens who donated a percentage of their sales on the night, Sandy Oram, Vanessa Jones, Sue Burke, Wendy McDuff, Lorraine Boak, Ayse and Lara Green, Sue Sheard and our car park attendants Trevor Sheard and Stuart Hillard
Thank you to the Oasis Hotel, they did a great job looking after the models all of who were stars of the night however one star stood out, Jane Boreham, who decided that she would raise money through sponsorship as all of her friends and family knew that by putting herself forward as a model was far out of her comfort zone. Jane raised a massive 3,200TL!
Our support also came from companies and individuals who supplied raffle prizes and auction items: Oasis Hotel, Jane and Robin Yates, Hideaway Hotel, Onar Village, Blue Song Restaurant, Silver Rocks Restaurant, Hannan Bags & Watches, our models who brought in various items…… we thank you all.
Finally, a huge thank you Lynda Hillard and Barbara Willbye for putting this show together and raising a fantastic 14,467.50TL!!
