THERE is going to be a monster raffle, auction and sausage sizzle at Lynch’s Hotel this Sunday, April 6 starting at 1pm.
Pub employee Natasha Tiedt instigated the day to raise funds for the Australian Cancer Research Foundation after seeing members of her own family and the Lynch’s family and patrons do battle with cancer.
“As we are all well aware cancer can target anywhere in our bodies and it can also target anyone, this deadly disease shows no discrimination,” Natasha said.
“I am appealing to everyone in our local community to help themselves not feel so helpless against this disease that affects our family and our friends, to join with me getting pro-active towards this foundation that funds projects towards prevention, diagnosis and treatment of all cancer. “They have donated just under $95 million in grants to world-class promising researchers, facilities and newest technologies since 1984 without receiving any kind of State or Federal Government Funding while only having 11 employees.”
Natasha has organised a massive sausage sizzle planned along with a female DJ, the monster raffle with already more than 40 prizes on offer.
Check out on the notice board at Lynch’s for the list of all the prizes, growing every day.
Also as a late edition this week Tony from Club Narooma donated an authentic Canberra Raiders jersey fully signed to be auctioned.
“I also would deeply and sincerely like to give a massive heartfelt thank-you to every business that has graciously donated to this cause, you would not believe how generous these small businesses have been and they really do our community proud, truly an amazing thing to be part of,” she said.
“Please buy tickets to help support us, there are plenty of chances to win. They are for sale at Lynch’s Hotel, some businesses around town and our volunteers out and about.”
Narooma website designer Adrian Fisse has set up a free website for local charities to use and it can be found at wwww.naroomacharity.com.au - it contains all the info about Tash raising cash to fight cancer.
