International Women’s Day
Event for Tulips at the Mountain View Hotel
By Carole King and Sue Tilt….
The International Women’s Day Event at Mountain View Hotel for Tulips was organised by Barbara Willbye who had collected all the prizes for the raffle, with the help of some very good friends. Over 100 women attended and were treated to a 3 course meal, the fabulous Pete Murray entertaining and Katie B making a guest appearance, both as normal providing their services free of charge for Tulips…… Thanks as always go to both of them, and also Sue and her Staff at the Mountain View Hotel who all did a fantastic job.
The music was great and the dancing was exhausting! A fabulous time was had by all.
On top of this, sponsorships were raised to give each lady a Red Carnation (supplied by Karasu Jewellers), a Chocolate Cup Cake for each lady (supplied by Akpinar Patisserie), plus a rather bigger than usual Truffle for all the ladies (supplied by Fatma Nihater-Burnhill) and also a Purple Silk Tulip (supplied by Tulips Workshop). Thank you to these sponsors for their generosity.
The event brought recognition of Tulips good work to Lemar Supermarket, who not only sponsored a lovely goody hamper for the raffle on the night but they have also pledged to support the ladies night in the future, and they have approached Tulips to do a loyalty card in aid Tulips, this means that all shoppers can sign for the card and get 5% discount of which 3% will be deducted from their final fatura and 2% will go to Tulips.
The Mountain View despite supplying wonderful food and drinks for just 70tl, donated to Tulips 10tl from each ticket, which made a donation of 1,090tl, thank you to them.
Barbara said that it was a wonderful evening and wanted to thank everyone concerned, we have to remember without your support and attendance these events would not happen, thank you so much for your continued support.
We echo Barbara’s comments and feel so grateful that we have supporters like her and all the other wonderful people who support us in so many ways.
