Girls Night In 2012

The total raised (so far) is $2086!!!

It is time again for the Girls' Night In for the Cancer Council. Money raised goes towards raising awareness and funds for prevention programs, support services and world-class research into women’s cancers

This year (again) we had a sumptuous afternoon tea.  I set the challenge to improve on our fundraising tally from last year, of $1094, and my friends and family have not let me down. Our total currently stands at $2104.

I was tardy taking the photos, and so you will have to imagine that the plates are full, and especially the one in the front that contained profiteroles. Yum!
Tasty treats included sandwiches, spinach & ricotta rolls (MotherC), sausage rolls and party pies (KL), carrot cake (MotherH), a gorgeous strawberry layer cake, profiteroles (BakingN), a selection of tasty slices (AC), mocha brownies, chocolate chip cookies (E), and twisties (PH) alongside my vanilla cupcakes and chai cupcakes. E also concocted a fabulous punch and there were pots of tea to go around.

I was a little less adventurous in my baking efforts this year, but thanks to my fabulous family and friends there was more than enough to go around.

We ran a raffle again this year, and it was even bigger and better, with four prizes. Thank you so much for the generous donations!
