CTC 2010 McHappy Day
Saturday 13th November was our annual charity fundraiser day. We had
arranged to display the club cars at McDonalds in Queanbeyan to help
raise money for McHappy Day. Members started arriving around 9.30am and
already it was very steamy. It looked like we were going to have the
perfect day weather wise.
After setting up the club trailer and marquee, members started "shaking
the bucket" to collect donations from on lookers of our cars to raise
money for this great cause. There was a lot of interest from on lookers
and it wasn't long before the car park was full. Even patrons of the
opposition (KFC) wandered over to have a look at our cars!
We had visits from Victor the Viking, the Fire Brigade and also a couple
of the Brumbies. It was great to see so much interest and generosity
from the public on this great day.
I would like to say a big thankyou to the owner of the Queanbeyan
McDonalds store for letting us display at his venue. As they are a
great sponser of our club it was a pleasure to be able to help out!
Also a big thank you to the staff from McDonalds who provided club
members with refreshments during the day which was greatly appreciated.
All up the club was able to raise $370 for Ronald McDonald House and
presented the owner with the funds raised.
In all it was a great day. All up we had 8 Toranas turn up and display,
which is a really a great effort considering this run was on a Saturday,
and given that a lot of members had other commitments such as work and
kids sport. Thanks heaps guys and gals for making the effort to come
out and help raise money. It was a great result for both the club and
charity. Looking forward to next year already!
