It’s a win/win for Rainbow Beach State School P&C and Bruce and Terri Geissmann. The P&C will help organise and drive The Pig Day Out, with both the Melanoma Foundation and the school benefiting.
Many of you may be aware of this annual event but for those who are not – it is to raise money for the Melanoma Foundation in the loving memory of Bruce and Terri’s daughter Kelly, who passed away from melanoma 3 years ago.
President Rachel Croker said, “In the past Bruce and Terri have organised and run this event alone and, as you can imagine, it has been a huge effort both emotionally and physically for them. Without our assistance they were not going to run it again.”
“We ask you as a community to join us in helping keep this highly successful annual event. Let us know if you can volunteer some of your time over the June long weekend in any way – there will be many ways you can help.”
Some events include selling raffle tickets, manning a stall, cooking sausages, supervising an activity like the Bucking Bull or kids pig moulds.
“We are also looking for contacts for things like classic cars or local bands, etcetera.”
If you have any suggestions or can help in any way please contact Rachel on 0419 464 254 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
