Friday, October 9

This morning started pretty early because I met with the finance/fundraising committee of the Brisbane Zonta Breakfast Club.  Based on the conversation, they may add a silent auction to their movie night fundraiser.  I received the following note from the club:

Dear Jean Ann

Thank you SO MUCH for attending our breakfast today. The committee is very appreciative of your advice, experience and suggestions – I am not sure if we will ever quite get to the $70K fundraising mark,but it is wonderful to have it to aspire to.

We have so enjoyed having you at our gathering this morning, at our breakfast and fundraising event – hope you enjoy the rest of your stay here and your trip to  Noosa.

Kind regards Marisa and the Finance and Fundraising committee
