Great Offshore Shave Report
Hi all Offshore Shave crew
It's taken this long for a last minute donations to go through but I
think we have our final total.
We all raised a whopping $6900 total including pre-shave donations,
shave event donations (there were a many) and post donations.
Thank you to all the team for your effort to make the event happen,
thanks to all the performers, hair dressers and colourists, chefs,
cupcake makers, prize givers, and raffle helpers and to all that came
for the fundraiser for the Leukaemia Foundation. !!
Well done. Xoxo
