Last week Friday , it was panic stations as I tried to be organised and have everything ready for the Cookie Swap Event on Saturday.

As most of you know I was asked to host the Durban event and pulled in Fay to help me with the putting together of the event .For 4 weeks it was endless emails and phone calls trying to pull things together.And then the 14th September 2013 arrived and Durban did us proud with its gorgeous weather.The venue was Piatto on Florida Road.

Twenty foodies arrived armed with some very moorish cookies for us to taste , swap , socialise and raise some funds for charity in the process.Some were old friends and now we all have even more new friends after sharing our sweet treats.We even had a Sunday Times event reporter pop in to cover the event 🙂

After a lovely afternoon of sharing , raffles, auctions and cookies it was time for our Durban lovelies to say goodbye and take home with them lots of treats for their loved ones. A grand total of R3500 was raised by the Durban Cookie Monsters . A huge thank you to all our sponsors and guests for making this event possible.
