In most recent news…

SSPA Vic Branch Chocolate Fundraiser

The SSPA Victorian Branch have boxes of Cadbury chocolates to sell to assist with fundraising for the athletes competing in the 2017 World Dwarf Games and also, the upcoming 2016 SSPA National Convention.

The boxes are a variety pack and contain 50 chocolate bars, i.e. cherry ripe, time outs etc. To be sold at $1.00 each. The SSPA will make $20 for every box sold i.e. 50 boxes would get us $1000. Workplaces seem to be a popular place to sell the chocolates as well as family and friends. Of course the trick is not to eat all 50 pieces yourself and pay $50 for the privilege.

Please contact Gail Young as soon as possible on 0430 470 656 or [email protected] if you would like to take a box to sell. Please note, boxes to sell will be available at the upcoming National Sporting weekend in Albury. Thank you Gail for organising the chocolate drive.

MAGNIFICIENT Annual Trivia Night

The Annual Magnificent Trivia Night was held on Saturday 30th April. Yet another ‘magnificent’ event attracting lots of competitive people ready for trivia battle! Of course, all in good spirit and fun to raise money for the 2017 Australian World Dwarf Games team as well as the 2016 SSPA National Convention. It was such a great success in its’ fundraising efforts, on the night a total of $2,141.00 was raised. A very big thank you goes out to Tom Carney, Merry Young, Gail Young, Sam Millard, Rob Millard and Marie Millard for organising the night.

Vigorella Fundraiser layers for life

Recently held on the 29th May, Vigorella opened its’ doors, filled glasses with champagne and dazzled the guests with a lovely array of fashions on display. It was a fun and very successful day, with about 55 ladies in attendance raising just over $4000 to go towards the 2016 SSPA Annual Convention.

A very special thank you to Jenny Zeuschner; her daughter Isabella Zeuschner for selling raffle tickets on the day, Marie Millard and Megan Lilly for organising the champagne, and the Vigorella Staff (Ann, Leeanne, Kate, Jen L and Charo) for doing an amazing job with styling.
