These are specially initiated and planned by our Fundraising Committee to increase the pool of money we use to “make a difference”.
Funds raised are spent to ensure that …
- planned and committed projects are achieved
- we can meet immediate needs including individual and group requests that come in regularly
- we can contribute to emergency relief in our community and beyond
- we are able to initiate new / pro-active projects that are often inspired or initiated by members
A percentage of funds is also kept in fixed deposit to ensure we have ready access to large amounts of money for major planned projects eg. the purchase of essential SES equipment.
Major fundraisers for our club have been the monthly Farmers’ Markets, the annual Art Show on cup weekend, cocktail parties, our Annual Community Fundraising Breakfast, Raffles, Trivia Nights, BBQs, marquee provision for community group events and auctions.
We conduct an annual Community Fundraising Breakfast whereby all money rasied is channeled back into our community.
Our club appreciates and values the donations and contributions made by community members and visitors to our Shire, because without their generosity and financial assistance we would not be able to do what we do.
