Local saves Bundy Thunder entrant

A MISS Bundy Thunder entrant whose tin for charity donations was stolen from a restaurant in the city has had a little light shed on her efforts.

Sarah Fogarty, who works at Viva Italia, was devastated early this month when a thief stole the tin and the money it contained, from the counter at the restaurant.

Although the tin was later found nearby, the money was gone, dealing a blow to Ms Fogarty's attempt to raise the $500 needed to take part in the Miss Bundy Thunder competition.

But a Good Samaritan has come along to help her replace the money.

Mary Kay Cosmetics consultant Maureen Stevens has offered to donate some gift packs to be raffled at a fashion parade Ms Fogarty has organised for October 13 at Across The Waves.

“It's very nice of her,” Ms Fogarty said.

“Out of something bad something good comes of it.”

Mrs Stevens said she read about Ms Fogarty's misfortune and felt sorry for her.

“I was just astounded something like that could happen, and I thought I can help this young lady,” she said.

“She had heard of our products but never had the opportunity to try them, and she's excited about that.”

Mrs Stevens said she would do up two or three gift packs of the company's products that could be raffled.

“I thought that's money the charity will never recoup, and they might make something from our products on the night.”
