Snow sis­ters make wishes come true

Mt Buller News - - FRONT PAGE -

THE 2017 An­nual Snow Sis­ters Din­ner held at the Black Cock­a­too Restaurant with an af­ter party at the Bird­cage on Thurs­day, July 13 was a roar­ing suc­cess with mor than 80 women at­tend­ing a sold out event.

This event has be­come a sought af­ter din­ner sell­ing out in a mat­ter of days which is a tes­ta­ment to what a won­der­ful women’s com­mu­nity the Snow Sis­ters has brought to­gether.

This year, funds were raised for Make a Wish Aus­tralia which will al­low chil­dren who have a life threat­en­ing ill­ness the op­por­tu­nity to have their Snow Wish come true.

“Some of th­ese chil­dren have never seen the snow and have made a wish in hope that they will re­ceive a snow ex­pe­ri­ence,” said Snow Sis­ter Suzanne Rum­ble.

“The wish will take place dur­ing the 2018 sea­son which will al­low a child to have snow un­der their feet for the first time.

“One child’s wish is to have snow fall on her tongue and all this can now come true be­cause of the amaz­ing sup­port of the women who at­tended the event along with do­na­tions made by those that could not at­tend.”

The night saw a live auc­tion where ski coaches Hamish Cox and David Speirs were highly sought af­ter as well as pho­tog­ra­phy ses­sions with Sealey Brandt and an amaz­ing din­ner package at the Black Cock­a­too Restaurant.

A great range of si­lent auc­tion items were on of­fer which guests had the op­por­tu­nity to bid for.

Ms Rum­ble said none of this would be pos­si­ble with­out the in­cred­i­ble sup­port of spon­sors who gave fan­tas­tic items and their time to as­sist in mak­ing the event a suc­cess.

Each lady went home with a gift bag do­nated by Chris­tine Parks from Giv­ing Brand Co and Carolyn Cress­well from Car­man’s.

Ms Rum­ble said Snow Sis­ters was formed a num­ber of years ago to en­cour­age Mt Buller women to come to­gether, meet new friends and help build a strong net­work in the com­mu­nity.

Snow Sis­ters also look for­ward to see­ing the next gen­er­a­tion join­ing in and en­joy­ing the same close bond of friend­ship,” she said.

All ages are wel­come each year and due to a sell out event this year the Snow Sis­ters com­mit­tee be­ing Suzanne Rum­ble, So­nia Evans and San­dra Maier - are go­ing to work to­wards en­sur­ing ev­ery­one can get a ticket.
