Toowoomba Hospice Administration and Fundraising Manager, Mark Munro, wants to encourage staff to hang their boss out on Friday 11th August all for a good cause – The Toowoomba Hospice.
Â “We are asking businesses on the Darling Downs to â€œHang their boss out to dryâ€ by placing him or her in a scissor lift/cherry picker and raising it to the top. The Boss must raise a minimum of $2,000 from upÂ in the air to be let back down.Â Â They can contact anyone they like to raise their money, so hopefully no-one will be left hanging!”
Â The Hospice has cared forÂ over 1,220Â clients withÂ the highest standard of care being afforded to all, howeverÂ to maintain this level of support, they are forced to rely heavily on the financial assistance of the community to fund an operating budget of at least $1.7 million dollars this financial year.Â
Â Just over $217,000. has been raised over the last 4 years – â€œThis year we hope to raise at $60,000. from this fun event and as an extra incentive, the Boss who raises the most money gets to host the 2018 Hang Ya Boss Out To Dry at their work place next year PLUS all those who get hung out to dry go into a draw to win a weekend away said Mr Munro
Â The event will be held on 11 August 2017 from 6am onwards at The Toowoomba Hospice (57B Oâ€™Quinn Street) with a live outside broadcast. The Lions Club of Wilsonton will have a BBQ Breakfast cooking and the Coffee Cruiser will also be there sell their hot beverages to help keep participants and spectators warm.
Â Mr Munro saidÂ you can be guaranteed that your time and money will is going to a great cause â€“ The Toowoomba Hospice.Â If you are interested, please contact [email protected] Â or 07 4659 8500Â
