Fundraisers in NW Tasmania


Thanks to great community support the OzRock Inn fundraiser was a great success. The Zoco Electric Bike had a centre piece position inside the venue, and received much attention. The Dutch Jans Premium Herbal Liqueur was the friendship drink of the night especially for some new converts! At this rate they will need to have a Tasmanian distributor soon.

Most people got a taste of Koolit (the multi purpose AloeVera gel for athletes like us!!), a Cadbury chocolate (or 5) and a  C-Max Movie pass (subscribe to their mailing list if you live in the area!), everyone got educated on Cystic Fibrosis and Organ Donations (register now by clicking here), and best of all we made at least an estimated $500 both for CF Tasmania as well as $500 for the bike team cycling from Vietnam to Singapore! Fantastic effort and a special thank you to Roger and Fiona Smith from RSF Projects who brought the most friends along for the night and to Martin and Christine from OzRock for hosting another fantastic CF fundraiser!


Well folks, we had the last of the two fundraisers today at the Drysdale teaching restaurant. The student staff and apprentice cooks did a wonderful job, and we had ample raffles to keep us occupied. The Zoco Electric Bike took Centre stage again and the Dutch Jans Friendship Liqueur was tasted, raffled and auctioned!

For the statistician: The average person paid  $34 entry, $5 in the raffles, $3 in the auction, and the average person went home with $40 worth of donated merchandise value, which did not include the prime silent auction item donated by Foundry Productions (Brisbane). Not bad!

Total fundraiser results for both fundraisers:
  • CF Merchandise $25
  • CF Tasmania $863
  • The Team  $950 
Friendly Drysdale staff/students!

And for those whose curiosity was tickled by the best silent auction item, which is soon destined for The Sugar Cafe in Williams Street:

The printed work – Colour Wheels, represents the spoke patterns of 3 distinct bicycle wheel designs. While from a distance, the image appears almost chaotic and explosive, a closer inspection reveals the complex layering of texture, colour and line, formed from the perfect and mathematically engineered matrixes of the spokes. The use of colour is similar to an artist's colour wheel, showing all colours at once, blending together to create new tints. The playfulness of these elements combines to capture the energy and dynamics of a bicycle wheel in motion—the result of a rider's effort and endurance. 

The work—lovingly designed by Foundry Productions (Brisbane)—has been printed on acid free archival paper for long life, and set beautifully in a Bamboo, 'Country Road' frame.
Thanking everybody in the community for supporting Coughing for Cystic Fibrosis!
