Christian Surfers Fundraiser!!

Saturday night we had a big Christian Surfers fundraiser auction! We had a goal of raising $10,000 to help support Christian Surfers Queensland as a whole and also some other projects. 

Naomi & I in the kitchen. We served tapas-appetizers/hors' de overs! 

One of the things the auction benefited was a trip to the Philippines. Compassion is teaming up with Christian Surfers and the Australian Christian Channel(ACC) to hopefully make a documentary about the trip. There are 4 groms from Coolum going on the trip with Jordy Merry (his dad works for Compassion!), Mr. Merry & some crew from the (ACC). We will upload their promo video soon!

Some serious bidders! 

The evening ended with a very exciting auction item. Aaron's dreads!! One by one we cut them and sold them. He raised over $500!! Ashlee got to do the "honors"!!

 Since Aaron raised so much money by cutting his dreads, we all decided that for each $100 raised above our goal he must keep one big dreaddy for 1 month! He set the limit of a max of 2 months! We did it, so here is the lock he has to keep till December!! haha

We met our goal and feel complete blessed and blown away by God!
