Snow sisters make wishes come true
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.
