Mothers Day Lunch – 11am, Friday 11 May 2018
This school community event brings mothers past, present and future, as well as Alumnae, together to celebrate “all things Stuartholme”. The primary focus of the lunch is catching up and sharing time together over a lovely 3 course meal. A secondary goal of this event is fundraising via Raffles and a Silent Auction. Last year, profits made from the Mothers’ Day Lunch were spent across a number of areas. Charities such as Orange Sky Laundry and Sony Camp were once again supported as Stuartholme girls volunteer with these two worthy causes. $1000 of sanitary products was also donated to Brisbane-based Share the Dignity, a group that solely cares for women and children fleeing domestic violence and avoiding homelessness. School projects that funds assisted were new stools for the Drama department, two umbrellas to shelter student eating areas and the supply and install of those magnificent fairy lights on the feature tree in the Stuartholme courtyard. For all the details, view your Stuartholme Mothers Day Lunch Invitation.
Registration and payment is now available online via try booking. Registrations close on Friday, 4 May 2018. Please note there is a $0.30 Booking Fee with this registration.
Be Engaged …. one way or another
If you know you are unable to attend this year’s Mothers’ Day Lunch (Fri 11 May) but are still keen to support the event, all is not lost! On the booking site there is a “Raffle ticket only” option that allows all Stuartholme parents to purchase general raffle tickets at $5 each (or 5 for $20 – what a deal!) and this year we are holding a SPECIAL LIMITED Thermomix Raffle with ONLY 50 tickets for sale at $50 each. This provides a 1 in 50 chance of winning a thermomix worth $2300! Don’t miss this opportunity, Kitchen Connoisseurs! A short cut, for convenience …. www.trybooking.com/ULZU
As always, contributions towards the raffle prizes and auction items are often sourced directly through Stuartholme parents. A number of previous contributors have been contacted already but the committee is seeking new ideas of donations and potential businesses who may consider supporting this Stuartholme event.
Presently, we are seeking donations from within the school community of service vouchers (ie massage, beauty therapy, hair salon), a weekend escape, a week’s accommodation anywhere but here, sports memorabilia / event tickets, pieces of artwork, fine jewellery and any other item that might be sought after by a room full of women!
If you have a donation you’d like to give and/or have a contact that a committee member could reach out to, please do not hesitate to contact Parents of Stuartholme on firstname.lastname@example.org . There is a draft “letter of request” available from PoS that can be used if a business is to be contacted and committee members available to contact said businesses if you point them in the right direction.
We are looking forward to sharing a memorable day with many Stuartholme Mothers!
