As we hit the final stretch of 2013, we know many Mudgee residents are starting to purchase their 2014 calendars, and have started writing important dates into their new diaries. Well, while you’re drawing love hearts on your anniversary or cakes on your family members’ birthdays, make sure you add in a large daffodil on May 3, 2014! Mudgee & Districts Relay for Life is coming, and now’s the time to jump on board to show your support for the Cancer Council by helping to make the 2014 Relay a huge success.
The 2012 Mudgee & District Relay for Life won the ‘Community Event of the Year’ at the Australia Day Awards… an absolutely sensational effort, and one that deserves much praise. It’s wonderful to know that we have such a dedicated group of local people doing such wonderful things for those suffering in the community. Perhaps buoyed by the success of the 2012 Relay, the committee have this year raised the bar. The target for the 2014 Relay is to have 60 teams registered, and to raise $150,000.
While this may seem ambitious, it is certainly achievable with community support. There are already 15 teams registered to go, and a total raised (so far) of nearly $4,400. Not bad when we’re still almost 5 months away from the starting line.
Register your team now by clicking over to the Relay for Life Mudgee & Districts webpage, and please note the next information night will be held at Club Mudgee on February 26. For more information you can also contact Christina Caughey (Teams Coordinator) on 02 6378 2730 or via email at Christina.Caughey@midwestern.nsw.gov.au. Make sure you take advantage of the early bird discount by registering now, and pay just $15 per person.
Our Professionals Mudgee Real Estate team will continue checking in to see how the totals are going for this fantastic community event. We hope to see the tally skyrocketing very quickly with support from all our Mudgee friends. All you need to do now is to create and register your own team, and start brainstorming some fundraising ideas. Don’t forget, they’re aiming for 60 teams, so please help to spread the word by sharing this post with your friends, family, co-workers and bosses. Let’s get all Mudgee businesses and families on board!
