The last meeting of the Batemans Bay Evening View Club was on Wednesday 9 November 2022 at the Batemans Bay Soldiers Club. There was a good attendance as this was our annual Pamper Auction but we always welcome new members and guests.
After our general meeting and a delicious meal we had the main attraction of our night. Our Annual Pamper Auction is great fun and a great fundraiser. All items are donated by members or friends and our Auctioneer Julie kept up a good pace with the auction as there were a large number of lots. We raised over $600 for the night and this money goes towards our students in the Smith Family Learning for Life Program. A big thank you to everyone who donated items and also to everyone who attended.
On the Saturday 29 October 2022 our club had a fundraiser with the BBQ at Bunnings. A big thank you to everyone who gave time at the BBQ including the men. This is a wonderful part of our fundraising for The Smith Family Learning for Life Program.
The Batemans Bay Evening View Club sponsors 6 students fully and 1 student partially (with our Region) and to do this we need to raise about $5000 each year. We also support the Smith Family Toy and Book Appeal each year with about $500. The Smith Family Toy and Book Appeal aims to deliver over 75,000 new toys and 50,000 new books to children in need around Australia.
The next meeting of the Batemans Bay Evening View Club will be held on Wednesday 7 December 2022 at the Batemans Bay Soldiers Club at 6.00 pm for 6.30 pm. This meeting is our Christmas Party and everyone brings a small gift for our Secret Santa. It is a fun way to finish our year. This year has been a great year for our club after coping with Covid and shutdowns in the previous few years. Visitors and guests are always welcome to come and join everyone and enjoy an evening with women from all walks of life and listening to a great guest speaker. For all enquiries please contact Julie on 0408 215 553 or Jenny on 0429 726 630.
