What happens when a group of Aussie families and friends gather in one spot for a picnic in Central Park?…a lot of fun is what!
New York greeted us on Sunday June 26, 2016 with picture perfect weather which, in turn, meant a fabulous turn out at Norman’s Landscape @86th St .
While we nibbled on delicious lamingtons, played tunnel ball and got our faces painted the option was presented to buy raffle tickets for a chance to win a selection of donated prizes.
Proceeds from this raffle support AWNY and our Charity of choice for 2016 -The Dwelling Place- a shelter for homeless women on the Upper Westside. Visit their website and check out their great work: www.thedwellingplaceofny.org. We are very pleased to announce that the generous Aussie spirit raised $415 for The Dwelling Place.
Well done one and all for joining in the festivities of the day while raising funds for such a great cause!

- Anita Davison of New York Cake Stylist – unique cake
- Jacinta Stewart – faceprinting at a party or art class for two people
- Belinda Jackson – Aussie goods hamper
