Crossbones Gallery is showing their soft side as they aim to raise $30,000 for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Nepean Hospital.
The popular York Road tattoo parlour will be hosting their Boards4Bubs fundraiser on Saturday, November 17.
The gallery hopes to buy a Giraffe Incubator Carestation for the NICU.
Crossbones staffer, Kirra Pace, said the gallery is looking forward to giving back to the community.
“We wanted to raise some money for the NICU at Nepean Hospital because we just felt that it was something that affects a lot of people in the community, so it was something good to get behind,” she said.
The Boards4Bubs event will see a variety of fundraising activities including raffles and auctions.
“It’s really exciting to see how much local businesses have been getting behind us by donating items for the raffle, we have a mountain of things that we’ll be selling on the day,” Ms Pace said.
The community is invited to come down to pick a flash tattoo off the available sheet for just $100. All of the proceeds will be put towards the purchase of the incubator.
100 skateboards that have been decorated by local artists will also be available for purchase.
“The NICU is currently undergoing a refurbishment so we couldn’t have picked a better time to do it,” Ms Pace said.
The fundraiser will run from 10am until 10pm. For more information, visit www.facebook.com/events/638295489863914.
