2012 Gold Rose Winners
The Civil Celebrations Network CCN runs the ASKACELEBRANT Gold Rose Promotion with cash prizes to
- raise the profile of our CCN network so it is better known (so our members have a better chance at getting ceremony work ), and
- to give our CCN celebrants some tools to raise their profiles in their local communities.
The winners for this year's Gold Rose competition were drawn at 11am Friday 2nd November 2012 at the Husky Bakery Cafe Huskisson, NSW, by Ingrid Poulson, trainer and author, New South Wales.
Ingrid Poulson has inspired many through her own compelling journey of resilience. She now combines her academic background with her uniquely qualified life experience to build resilience in others. Ingrid holds an MA in Cognitive Science and works with individuals and organisations to equip them with the necessary tools for life enhancement.
Ingrid's story is part of her book titles "Rise"
In 2003, Ingrid Poulson's estranged husband killed their two young children and Ingrid's father. After time, Ingrid chose to start with survival and build from there. She recognised her resilience and chose to rise to the challenge of overcoming unimaginable tragedy.
Few people have to suffer events such as those that Ingrid experienced. But everyone has to deal with challenges, hardships and grief in everyday life. The ability to be resilient in the face of these can mean the difference between getting through troubled times and living life to the fullest, and succumbing to their pressures.
Everyone who has met Ingrid is inspired by her clarity and courage. Through the four main components of her program of resilience – Resolve, Identity, Support and Everyday resilience – she shares the skills and practices she has developed to not only survive but to live a rich and rewarding life.
The Civil Celebrations Network CCN thanks Ingrid for taking time to do our Gold Rose Draw.
The winning entries were:
1st Prize $500 Entrant number 195 Rebecca and Matt Celebrant: Rita O'Reilly
2nd Prize $300 Entrant number 214 Julian and Ngoc Celebrant: Lynda Ross
3rd Prize $200 Entrant Number 40 Sarah and Shaun Celebrant: Jenny Stevens
All three prize winners are listed on the web site and I am in possession of their entry forms which have been signed and witnessed in accordance with the terms and conditions.
The CCN Inc thanks all those couples who participated and their celebrants in joining with us for the fun draw. Of course we would like for everyone to win something :-) but we trust that the love you celebrated in your ceremony, whether as a couple or family, is the true prize!May that love stay strong and nuturing always.
