No such things as ugly for the leukemia kids
UGLY isn’t such a bad thing. Bartender Rachelle Lynch, at the Central Hotel in Port Douglas, has signed up to show her UGLY (Understanding, Generous, Likeable You) side to support the Leukemia Foundation.
“I’m just trying to help these little sick kids and their families,” Ms Lynch said.
“It’s a struggle when you’re unwell and it’s hard to have funds for travel and treatment.
“It’s just awful so I wanted to get involved and raise money for patients in the area to send them to Brisbane.
“Every $80 I raise is one night’s accommodation and $1500 will help a family of four.”
She said her grandchildren had fun giving her an “ugly” makeover. “I decided to dress ugly because it’s a conversation starter and it makes me stand out,” Rachelle said.
“If I raise the most amount of money I would be the UGLY Bartender of the Year, but it’s not about me, it’s about helping people in need.”
Rachelle would love local businesses to support her raffle with all proceeds going to the Lukemia Foundation.
