  • Dare to dream and think big was certainly the motivation for Inner Wheel Club of Tawa Co-President Carolyn Crutch when she muted the idea of organising a Women’s Health and Beauty Expo to raise funds for our National Project Look Good Feel Better. Exhibitors shared a huge variety of health, beauty, lifestyle products and services with things to try buy and learn as the Tawa Bowling Club venue turned miraculously into a colourful array of tables, banners and goods Each attendee received a goodie bag full of information and samples, took advantage of the free drink and nibbles on offer, as part of the entry price. Sponsorship from many local entities enabled 75% of the ticket price to go to the charity. Carolyn shared the motivation behind the event and then introduced Clare O’Higgins, General Manager of LGFB, who gave details about how the charity supports those undergoing medical intervention. There were many nodding heads in the room as women identified with their own personal stories of friends who have been through cancer treatments. A wonderful evening with all members of the IW club of Tawa contributing through food preparation and service, welcome, ticket collection, raffles, an Inner Wheel Stand and moving around the room chatting to those who attended. The success of this evening was also due to the huge sponsorship able to be achieved from local businesses. Assistance, sponsorship and a hard working committee resulted in a three figure profit donated to LGFB. The expo provided a medium in which to share Inner Wheel as an organisation and entice interest from those within and outside the community, it also helped to tap into the charity dollar from those not normally targeted for Inner Wheel events.
