Through the Looking Glass - the beginning of a very impressive raffle/auction list

Oh my giddy aunt, we only have 4 weeks to dust off our dancing shoes and find a frock for Through the Looking Glass! For those of you that may have been living under a rock, I am hosting a fundraiser, a cocktail event in Brisbane, to raise money for Melanoma Institute Australia.

Since being diagnosed with Stage 4 melanoma, I have dedicated the time I have left to raising awareness of melanoma, but also raising much needed money for research. Selfishly, I want options. I want to know that once this treatment stops working that I can jump to another clinical trial. This is why I want to raise money for research.

I have been overwhelmed by the support that has been shown for the event. Tonight I want to share with you all the amazing raffle prizes/auction items that have kindly been donated to Through the Looking Glass. I hope this makes you even more excited about the event!
