It’s no secret that the Far North Coast has some of the highest homelessness figures in the country and Dharma Care is determined to reduce those figures as the days get colder.
Dharma Care, which is an Australian charity dedicated to creating life-changing opportunities for the destitute and disadvantaged, is hosting a Winter Warmer Homelessness Relief Campaign to provide essential support and comfort to people experiencing, or at risk of homelessness, in the Tweed Shire during the cold winter months.
WINTER WARMER FUNDRAISING CABERET
The campaign will incorporate the first Winter Warmer Fundraising Cabaret at Kingscliff Bowls Club on Thursday 15 June. The event will bring the community together to enjoy some of the area’s best talent in support of this important cause: including MC Mandy Nolan, as well as The Space Cowboy, and Felicity Lawless and Ms Eleneous.
Guests will enjoy a cabaret experience and can also purchase unique artwork, and participate in a raffle or silent auction of a range of exclusive prizes. Generous donations from local businesses and community members will ensure that the auction showcases a wide selection of sought-after prizes, enticing guests to support the cause.
People are struggling to stay warm as temperatures drop and harsh weather conditions set in, Dharma Care recognises the challenges faced by individuals and families who struggle to stay warm and healthy. The Winter Warmer Campaign aims to raise at least $50K to ensure everyone who finds themselves in that situation has access to adequate shelter, warmth, and nourishment through providing food, sleeping bags, hygiene packs, and tents.
Irwan Wyllie, CEO of Dharma Care, says they are thrilled to host the cabaret as part of ongoing efforts to support those doing it tough. ‘This event not only offers a memorable night of entertainment but also provides an opportunity for individuals to contribute to a meaningful cause’.
Tickets for the Winter Warmer Fundraising Cabaret are now available for purchase. Early booking is encouraged as places are limited events.humanitix.com/winter-warmer-nudqxtls.
