Suicide bereaved Maroochydore resident and WINGS of Hope supporter, Megz, recently held an inspirational charity art fundraiser on the birthday of her late partner, Jenna (aged 22) who left us in tragic circumstances a month after winning a prestigious Business Icon Award in Qld. Jenna was a Real Estate Agent in Maroochydore.
Thanks to Megz's inspirational effort to put on this event which was well supported by the community and the restaurant which hosted the luncheon, raising $7000 for WINGS of Hope's ongoing postvention effort and placing copies of Red Chocolate Elephants in the local community.
