What an amazing day we all had at the Helping Hand Autism Crop Day!!!

Alli and Michael deserve accolades a plenty. You both did an awesome job organising a fantastic event and raising $5175.75 for the Early Intervention Centre for Autism.

We had the most yummiest coffee and hot chocolates all day served to us by some recognised Barista's from all over Perth. I didn't realise that they are just as passionate about their coffee as we are about our scrapping. I listened in on some of the conversations these guys were having and was blown away that making a coffee was so technical! But you know what is tasted VERY good!

There were raffles throughout the day worth at least $180 each and lucky me won the Fiori Coffee pack with Espresso maker, coffee, hot chocolate, coffee cups, Espresso cups and even some Spicy Chai Tea!

The food was deilicious and plenty of it. 3 great soups and warm bread rolls also featured for lunch. The venue was perfect, plenty of room and the natural light was an added bonus.

You could even park your car undercover and bring in your gear!

I was continually overwhelmed by the generosity of those that were there, from one lady who offered to pay double for her ticket because friends she had invited had let her down to others who had donated their time and special talents.

Kim Young took all the photos on the day and some can be seen here. I admire your talent with a camera Kim! Thanks too for helping me with the dishes and tables at the end of the day (especially the more difficult tables!!!!!!!!).

There was a team of people behind Alli and Michael and I was very proud to be part of that team and here are some of us receiving thank you pressies from Alli.

That's a wrap!

Hi Sharon,

Glad the day went really well and sounds like you all need to put those feet up for a well earned rest this week. Take care
