Thank you to everyone who attended Carclew's inaugural Garden Party on Sunday 22 October. It was a pleasure to welcome you to ‘Ruthven’. I hope everyone took home some handmade produce, a few lottery tickets and perhaps a bottle or two from our Wine Basket lucky dip. We've posted an album of photos from the day on our Carclew Facebook page here.
We are busy tallying proceeds from the day, which will augment our donations campaign supporting Carclew Fellowships. That will then be matched dollar for dollar through the Creative Partnerships Australia Plus1 initiative, doubling the value of your contributions.
I'm delighted we were able to sign up the first of our annual Giving Circle donors on the day - thank you to those people and welcome to the Carclew family! We look forward to hosting you at upcoming VIP events. We will be continuing our Giving Circle donations campaign for the next few months, and once again everything we raise (up to $25,000) will be matched by Plus1. You may also be interested to know that, as this is an annual Giving Circle, you can choose to purchase up to 10 years in advance (at $500 per year).
If you would like to join our Circle, you can do so using the form that we sent you home with, or visit the Carclew website to complete your details. You're also welcome to contact Lucy Markey, Carclew's Senior Manager, Marketing & Development at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 08 8230 1118.
Thank you once again for your company and support. I’m deeply appreciative, as is the entire Carclew team, for the faith you’ve shown in us and the young artists we serve.
