The Great Vending Get Together 2November 7 2012
What a night! It definitely lived up to its name – The GREAT Vending Get Together 2!
Saturday 3rd November 2012 is definitely a night not to be forgotten! The Great Vending Get Together 2 was organised to raise awareness and generate funds to support EdUKaid’s projects in the next coming year – this, it definitely did!
Following on from the success and extremely positive response from the Vending Ball in 2011, Sarah (EdUKaid Events Coordinator) and Tim Varney (Chairman of Trustee’s) organised a fantastic evening full of brilliant entertainment and lots of cheer!
The entire evening managed to raise over £7000!
This sort of money really will make a huge difference, and have such an impact on so many children’s education in Mikindani.
The evening wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work of a few individuals; the contributions to the auctions; and continuous support received from the Vending Industry.
The Auction was definitely a winner! A BIG thank you to the donors of contributions to the auction, some of which included the New Kindle Touch; two tickets to Newcastle Football match; and a new Douwe Egberts Coffee Machine, just to mention a few!
These contributions played a huge part in raising funds for EdUKaid projects and provided some brilliant entertainment and very competitive bidding (you know who you are)!
The remainder of monies raised was through the ‘Balloon Raffle’ (which also made the venue look fantastic); 2013 Calendar Sales – available Here; the ticket sales; and a 5% contribution from the venue bar of drinks sold throughout the evening.
Thank you once again to all those who attended the event for your kindness and generosity, and making the event such a huge success!
“It was such a pleasure to organise such a great event for such lovely and generous people” Sarah Varney (EdUKaid Events Coordinator)
