WOW! What a beautiful community you are Newcastle. We are honestly so humbled by your support and cant thank you enough for being a part of this event. 

There has been so much wonderful feedback and we are so glad that you enjoyed yourselves and connected with fellow Queens all while supporting Rafiki Mwema. We really appreciate your support and if you would like to assist further there are a bunch of options from $5 a month to as much as you want a month or just a one off donation. Its people like you that keep us going. 

We must thank our gorgeous Ambassador Constance Hall who is now a big part of our Rafiki Family, it was great to share the night with her, the Newcastle Queen movement is truly something else.

A huge thank you to JandiMai Events for pulling this event together in record time.  None of this would have been possible without you or our amazing event sponsors.  EcoTan and Sleepy’s Kotara whose ongoing support means everything.  Customs House thank you for awesome support, Newcastle Flower Market for the gorgeous arrangements throughout the venue and for Constances’ flower crown, the beautiful Flowers for Frida and More than a Mumma for the fun Queens Land space and photo set and Rebecca Gibson for the ten minute medium readings. 

Thanks to The Grateful all our guests contributed to designing some gorgeous arrangements for the John Hunter Hospital and 3 boutiques and all your well wishes have been delivered and are being enjoyed by the patients and staff. 

Thanks to the golden ticket and raffle prize donations as well as our amazing auctions we raised $15k all of which is going to help cover the running costs of Rafiki and this is absolutely priceless – again we cannot thank you enough for your support.

A Note from The Grateful 
To those that attended the event on Saturday night and helped create these beautiful bursting bouquets and wrote thoughtful inspiring well wishes, we can’t thank you enough. We LOVED meeting you! Your beautiful blooms and heartfelt messages have been delivered to critical areas in the John Hunter Hospital. One giant bouquet is brightening lives in the Ronald McDonald House family room, another in NICU and the third in the Emergency Department.
