Generous Donation

A very generous cheque for $1010 has been received by the Scleroderma Association of Qld.
Below is a summary of the contents of the letter which accompnied the donation...

I am enclosing two cheques totaling $1010 being proceeds of a fund raising event held recently
to support the research into Scleroderma being carried out at the P.A. Hospital. My daughter,
Suellen Thompson suffers from the CREST variety and we have both recently joined the
Association. We attended the Seminar at the P.A. in March and are very pleased we did as we
found it very helpful and informative.
Some of our wonderful friends in Toowoomba held a fund-raising luncheon on Monday 28th
April. Our dear friends, Bob and Patti Mackinlay hosted the luncheon at their home and provided
a wonderful meal. We charged $10 a head and sold wine at $2 a glass and many of those
attending donated goods to raffle. We were quite overwhelmed at the fabulous amount raised.
I am sure you will agree we have a very special group of friends. lt was a wonderful day both
financially and socially and I enclose a photo (see below) taken on the day of Bob and Patti Mackinlay
presenting me with the proceeds of the day. Unfortunately Suellen was unable to attend but my
husband and I were delighted that we could be there.

Hope to be able to assist further sometime later in the year.
With best wishes
Margaret Grundy and Suellen Thompson
