It seemed like half of Mullumbimby turned out to support Nepal on Saturday night. And they handed over $20,000 in exchange for a fabulous night’s entertainment and the opportunity to win some wonderful prizes.
Many of them – including Mullum Music Festival passes, nights at [email protected], a gyrocopter flight, massages and more – can still be yours, even if you didn’t manage to make it on the night. Simply purchase the winning raffle ticket. They’re now on sale at Santos, local farmers markets and a number of other locations throughout Byron Shire over the next couple of weeks.
Meanwhile, a combined garage sale and fundraiser for Nepalese held in Mullumbimby’s Grevillea Avenue over the weekend raised a further $1630.
Resident Inaca Star said, ‘Everyone in the street took part, with pre-loved sale items donated from families and friends. Grevillians made slices, lemonade, muffins and cacaoballs as well as holding a gluten-free sausage sizzle. The vibe was great.’
Left over donations of pre-loved goods have also been distributed to local charities including Vinnies and the women’s refuge.
