Fairies will take over The Stables

Mudgee locals Diane Simmonds and Judy Kurtz are set to release a new book for children, Australian Fairy Poems.

The launch will be coupled with an art exhibition and sale of the book paintings by Judy Kurtz, and a fundraising event for The Children’s Cancer Institute.

“Five dollars from every book sold at the launch will go to The Children’s Cancer Institute, which is the only organization that solely researches for child cancer cures,’ Mrs Simmonds said.

“Also, the cover artwork for the book, Charlotte’s Dancing Shoes, will be auctioned, with full proceeds going to the Institute,’ Mrs Kurtz added.

Member for Calare, Andrew Gee will official launch the book on Saturday, November 18 at 11am at The Stables in Mudgee.

‘At the book launch there will be a prize for the best dressed fairy and elf, games with prizes and refreshments of fairy bread, cup cakes and iced fairy water with tea/coffee and light refreshments for parents,’ Mrs Simmonds said.

Mrs Simmonds and Mrs Kurtz are hoping the Mudgee community will support the fundraising project and buy a book at the launch.

Everyone is invited, and to help with catering, if possible, they ask you either ring/text 0488 065 456 or email dzsimmonds@bigpond.com to let them know how many children and adults will be attending.
