Function in the Junction 2011 (Update Tue, 5 Jul 2011 21:08:06)

The way in which the Junction community came together for this year’s Function in the Junction was phenomenal. Together we raised $12,775 to help burn survivors and other people in dire need of custom-made pressure garments, crucial to the recovery process of healing their skin.

Within three weeks of the fundraiser, help was given to three burn survivors in their time of need.

Dozens of residents and Junction businesses donated items and volunteered time. The JRA wants to take a few minutes to thank some of them here.

A special Junction thanks to The Paul and Elizabeth Martin Foundation for a $5,000 donation and to the Sleeping Dogs Motorcycle Club for a $1,500 donation.

We would like to thank local eateries; North of Bombay, Aquila, Agora and the Junction Fromagerie for our great dinner served up in style by Fire Station 423 local student volunteers and servers Fumiko Ohno, Jenna Milton, Andy Hughes, JP Bernardo, Helen Stiller, and Mary and Daniel Cole.

Thanks to Bella-Floral Fetish and Martin Flowers for the centre pieces and to the Roche family at Agora Café and Janet and MaryAnn at Latitude 44 for ticket sales.
