On June 28th, the Fortinbras Proudfoot Esq. Foundation will be holding a special Pearls for Charity draw in celebration of Proudfoot’s birthday. All that is required to enter is a donation of $10.00 or more, which will benefit children in foster and statutory care.
The winner will receive a beautiful set of pearls and matching earrings from Panda Pearls (worth $650), which were donated to the Brisbane Tolkien Fellowship. There will be two additional draws for two sets of pearl earrings from the same company.
Winners will be announced on the Brisbane Tolkien Fellowship’s Facebook page on June 30th, and the Foundation is able to ship overseas, so everyone is welcome to participate.
The mission of the Brisbane Tolkien Fellowship is:
- To create a greater awareness and appreciation of all J.R.R. Tolkien’s works and all that is associated with his world.
- To meet people with similar interests and to develop relationships.
- To create social events to bring people together with friends and family.
- To create events where people can share, knowledge, skills and ideas.
