Danii Meads-Barlow Memorial Fund - Butterfly Quilt Draw

At the BACG Christmas Party, the draw of the Butterfly Quilt raffle took place. Danii Meads-Barlow's parents attended as did members of Lifestyle Group 90, who supported the raffle by enthusiastically selling tickets.

Brenda, our President, introduced the raffle draw - there were a lot of tickets!

 Brenda handed over the cheque for the proceeds raised by the raffle to the Meads-Barlows for the Memorial Fund. Over $3800 was raised.

Brian Meads-Barlow was invited to draw the winning ticket

 Look at all those tickets!

And the winner is...

... John Barlow (Donna's uncle!)
... who immediately donated the quilt to Danii's parents, a wonderful gesture!

Many thanks for the hard work of the BACG members who pieced together and stitched the quilt that was donated to the Danii Meads-Barlow Memorial Fund for the raffle. A big thank you to all BACG members for selling tickets and Lifestyle Group 90 for their support as well. We would also like to thank Hobby Sew at Kings Park for helping us out with material costs and for fabulous quilting.

All of the proceeds will go towards the development of a device to aid diabetes sufferers. For more information please visit the Danii Meads-Barlow Memorial Fund website.

Christmas at The Huts

On Tuesday, the annual BACG Christmas party was held at The Huts. And this year, as an added bonus, we had members from Club 90 and the Danii Meads-Barlow Memorial Fund in attendance for the draw of the Butterfly Quilt raffle.

Santa came and handed out prizes from the Christmas draw amid much hilarity!

Thanks to all the members and guests who attended and helped BACG to celebrate the Christmas season.

And many thanks to the Committee members who organised and arranged the food and decorations and made sure we all had such a relaxing and enjoyable time!
