November Newsletter 2013

Friday, November 22, 2013

The Bald and Beautiful team were blown away when out of the blue came a letter in the mail from a lady that we have never met. After seeing Bald & Beautiful Day on NBN TV, Anne Hutton decided to use her creativity to come up with an incredible fundraiser idea. With the aim of raising $500, Anne came up with the concept of holding an "Excessories Day” at her workplace, Ausgrid. Her colleague, Ben Stevens offered graphic design skills to create a flyer and staff were invited to bring in unwanted scarves, belts, handbags and jewellery. Then an email went out to invite staff members to come along and buy a bargain. And all with the blessing of the boss! Anne started to receive the most amazing donations, and shared “I was blown away by the support by my co-workers, unfortunately too many have been touched by cancer”. The nominated day grew into multiple days due to the amount of goods to sell and the interest in buying the items.

Imagine everyone's surprise when we were presented with a cheque for $1154, which was made up of those who donated items to sell, proceeds from the sale and some cash donations. The leftover items were donated to a women’s refuge. What an amazing effort!!

"Excessories Day" at Ausgrid

Anne, together with Ben, her workmates and friends, has gone above and beyond to help others. It’s thoughtfulness like this and involvement of our own community that enables Bald & Beautiful to continue to provide a day of pampering and support for adults with cancer within our community.

The next Bald and Beautiful Day is on Wednesday, 7th May 2014.

Don’t forget to mark it in your diary.

Guessing Competition Raffle

Friday, March 25, 2011

First prize in the guessing competition drawn on Bald & Beautiful Day 4th May at Western Suburbs Leagues Club.

Value of this beautiful art work by David Perks is $4000.

“Ship And Tugs, Newcastle” (August 1992) is selected from an impressive body of oil paintings by David Perks depicting Newcastle Harbour from the 1970s onward. Originally from Sydney and now living on the Mid North Coast near Wingham, David became fascinated by the life of the harbour and the interplay of light, water and shipping of all sorts long before the harbour attracted other contemporary artists.

The scene is instantly recognisable to any Newcastle resident or visitor to the city and captures the dazzling effect of golden afternoon sun on the water as tug boats guide a ship to its berth.

Many of David’s Newcastle Harbour and beach scenes grace homes and boardrooms in the city, as will this example at the conclusion of the Bald And Beautiful raffle.

Art Preview Success

Tuesday, March 15, 2011
A wonderful evening meeting friends, fellow Rotarians, and art lovers was enjoyed by 125 people at Cooks Hill Galleries on Thursday 3rd March. Bruce Rowland, well-known Newcastle artist and teacher, exhibited and joined with the Director of the Galleries, Mark Widdup for a brief Q&A. Bruce kindly donated one of his etchings for auction, and Anthony Merlo auctioneer from Dalton Partners Real Estate, auctioned the art as a contribution to the Rotary Club of Newcastle Sunrise’s fundraising efforts for Bald & Beautiful Foundation and HMRI.

Guitarist David Fryatt entertained us with his masterful playing. Prof Maree Gleeson officiated at the opening with her wise words about the work of HMRI, and the research into cancer and ageing.

It was a pleasure to see how well Rotarians from at least six clubs, supported the event, with Cessnock Rotarians hiring a bus to make it a fun club night out. First prize in the raffle went to a lucky Cessnock lady.

Delicious canapés accompanied the wines as the evening got into full swing, with guests taking the opportunity to catch up with friends and meet new acquaintances.

A measure of the success of the evening was people staying to the very last, and asking when the next preview is to be held! The B&B and Rotary team is to be congratulated on their efforts in creating such a pleasurable and successful event.
