What a fantastic night it was on Saturday 26th October at Crown Perth for the launch of the Saba Rose Button Foundation. With 550 guests in attendance it was very impressive indeed, such an amazing turnout for such a special young girl. There was entertainment, delicious food, and of course loads of auction items to raise funds. The 'Saba' hamper we donated definitely attracted a lot of attention! Bidding was strong which was good to see.
Saba's mother Kirsten led us through their heart-wrenching story in a speech that didn't leave a dry eye in the room. It certainly put things into perspective hearing of their misfortune and of their daily struggles, but also the incredible insight they have as a result. The Button family are truly inspirational. It is no wonder they have achieved such abundant support and received such generosity as their hearts and spirits are so enduring and truly in the right place. What a humbling occasion it was.
Now here at Ginger B we are busy ensuring we have the gifts ready for all the lucky guests that participated in the special promotion we had for the night. It felt so good for us to have some of our suppliers join forces with us to be able to make these gorgeous little charity gifts happen. Still working on the finishing touches, pictures to follow soon!
