Our second fundraiser on November 13 was a warm and intimate gathering and we are grateful for everything!
Sibile, our chair, started off with a speech about what we have been doing lately and what has been achieved. We are very glad to be able to say that we can already support patients. If you want to know more about that please click on the News button!
Prof. Dr. J.A. Gietema, chair oncology at the university medical center of Groningen (umcg), told us a bit more about the AYA care at the umcg. We enjoyed a nice buffet and of course we also raised funds. Thanks to Sibile's aunt we could sell more stuffed animals - they were a great seller again. Our friend Ann makes wonderful necklaces (out of old buttons) that she sells for us and many bought early Christmas presents. Again we had an auction, Mieke offered a Gronings dinner and some local history at her beautiful 250 years old country home - it was so succesfull we had to break it up in two evenings. And we auctioned off a t-shirt signed by tennis legend Björn Borg - we got it from the lovely ladies at the Wimbledon Trust Fund. They have been really kind to us. Thank you to everyone who came to support us and everyone who keeps supporting us!
Below you will find some impressions of that evening!
