Assisi Hospice Charity Day 2008
It was really tired but very fun! and it was really great to know that Assisi Hospice managed to raise over $550,000 from this Charity fun day!
~ Article ~
Great bonding time with colleagues while doing a part for charity. I believe our stall was the NOSIEST food stall that shouted out to all the passersby.
I reached there at 8am to help decorate the stall and slowly all my colleagues came in. The weather was really hot!! Tied balloons to the poster Anne has made to make our stall more appealing.
Our theme was red! and it really matches the tentage colour too hur hur hur. We were really lucky as the stall beside us was selling balloons!! Not the normal normal kinds but custom made shapes. They can make them into a hat or something and we became free models for their products. We ended up selling both balloons and icecream.
Before the sale started, we were taking loads of photos and having fun.
dis time with me in it =p
By 9.30am we were in our full force and very very enthusiastic, shouting our wares to every ah gong, ah ma or the babies in the strollers..despite knowing the fact that nobody
"1 DOLLAR 1 DOLLAR! ICECREAM 1 DOLLAR ONLYYYYY!!"
I jokingly told my colleagues we should save some energy, otherwise by 12pm our voices will be
"1 dollar....... 1 dollar.... icecream.... 1 dollar... oniii"
with our sian-ji-bhua faces.
and true enough, one of my colleague nearly fainted due to the heat and our voices became softer after the hours passed haha. But we still managed to sell ALL the icecream! all 950 sticks of them.
Our balloon seller neighbour who so kindly helped us decorate our stall. =)
I'm wearing their creation! a Froggie on my head. haha and our stall is so full of balloons that on a few occasions, people approached us to ask about the balloons instead of the icecream =___=
Then our 2 beautiful icecream girls came out to walk about to promote our icecream. We got marketing strategy wan horkay.. mai siao siao. They are hot hot HOT!! =D
Then a trail of harley davidson bikes came along with Mdm Ho Ching as the guest of honour. You can even ride on the harley for 10 bucks. Not ride within the compound okay, it's on the ROAD.. a pity i was too tired when i left so did not get a chance.
Taking a break...
our colleagues came to support! and i love this photo very much! =)
Mdm Ho Ching in person.. shook hands with her while she passed me the cert.
More balloons.. we sold this 2 kitties too! hur hur
Macdonald oso came to do their part for charity and he lovess to pose for photos
Then there were photo booths as well where you can take pictures with the female version of Superman, Snowwhite and even BARNEY...
There were dance performances, singing performances and I believe even the volunteers had fun. Oh yah, you can even attempt to dunk 2 celebrities into the water for a mere 10 dollars. Mark Richmond, Lim Yu Beng and i cant recall the lady DJ's name were there as well.
last but not least.. dar came to support too!
it was really hot, but all the volunteers thought it was really a fun and meaningful way to contribute.
