On 13th December, we had our fundraiser with an organisation called Tastepoint. The deal was that we provided 60 people to taste and rate various samples of lamb and they gave us $1,000.
One interesting aspect was that they absolutely wouldn't start the tastings until and unless we had our full complement of people. At one session, we were three people short so both sides just sat around waiting for what seemed like a substantial period of time. A few emergency phone calls and three extra people were drummed up.
Thanks to Cath Bauman for organising and to Debra Forbes and Maree Papworth for helping out. Also, thanks to the 60 of you who participated in the event.
