Anyway, the total won’t be in until next week, but apparently they’ve smashed the $10K mark, an amazing effort.
It’s set a new benchmark for Dubbo businesses getting involved with the fundraisers themselves rather than just handing over a cheque, and the Pink Angels’ efforts in this collaboration were outstanding.
The week began with a Cocktail Party and Auction in the Holden Showroom with entertainment by Shane Riley.
Tuesday evening saw the Women on Wheels Workshop, showcasing the gentle art of basic automotive maintenance which included checking fluid levels, changing a tyre, how 2WD and 4WD works and what to do in an emergency. It was a fun and educational evening.
Thursday saw Golden West Automotive open up the dealership to local car enthusiasts with a Cars Under the Stars evening, some of the flashiest classic rigs in town put on show, with the Pink Angels manning the BBQ for gold coin donations.
And it was GOLD GOLD GOLD for the Pink Angels.
The Freaky Friday event came next, on Friday of all days - all week there were donation buckets and if enough money was raised then everyone would dye their hair Pink, so Friday afternoon saw a lot of fun with the sales staff’s collective hairdo’s undergoing pink makeovers.
On Saturday there was a Bake Sale in the showroom as well as a Carwash run by the Dubbo Junior Rugby Club.
Golden West has certainly laid down the challenge for other local businesses to look at a new way of doing community business.
