With this year being 2020, the organisation has taken the opportunity to hold a 1920’s themed fundraiser with guests encouraged to dress in the style of the 1920’s or formal attire. Outfits can be found at many of their op shops across the region.
“Given the ongoing drought and now, the impact of the bushfires in both Stanthorpe and Crow’s Nest, we need to raise vital funds for our local support services.”
“In 2019 we deployed staff to fire affected areas in Stanthorpe and Crow’s Nest where they were based in the community to provide counselling and emotional support, as well as monetary assistance where possible, to those who had been impacted,” he said.
“From past experience we know that residents will suffer trauma within the following six months after a natural disaster so we need to raise funds so that we can be there to assist”, Lifeline Darling Downs CEO, Derek Tuffield OAM went on to say.
Every year Lifeline Darling Downs receives drought donations and promptly distributes 100% of the funds to farmers and families who have been affected by the terrible effects of prolonged drought
conditions. Recently the scope of the appeal was extended to support families in South West Queensland who have also been affected by fire.
The “Return to the Roaring 20’s” Fundraising Dinner will be held at the Cathedral Centre, Neil Street, Toowoomba from 6.30pm until late.
Tickets are $145 per person or $1,120 for a table of eight and are available at https://toowoombatickets.com.au/event/10791
“Come along and enjoy dinner, dancing and a fundraising auction and help us support our local drought and fire support services. We look forward to welcoming you”, Mr. Tuffield said.
