Event description

Description

This is our third event coming up in September the 20th 2019.

$39.00 per person - $150.00 for a table of 5 - $290.00 for a table of 10

Drinks on arrival and and a lucky door prize.

This year we will raise funds for the Spirit of the Dragonfly and BIG (Bayside Initiatives Group Inc.)
Spirit of Dragonfly services anyone with a Disability over the age of 18 years of age. BIG is a drop-in center that deals with Mental Health issues.

The clients of the Spirit of Dragonfly learn different skills such as money management, cooking, presentation of tables, ordering stock, cutting up and preparing food, customer service, listening, raffles and endless other tasks.

If you need to know any more details about their unique program, get a sausage and talk to them. You can often catch them at Officeworks Capalaba or Amart All Sports selling sausage sizzle.

BIG is a community built on certain values. These values draw deeply on the Peer Movement that has been gaining traction since the 1960s as society moved away from institutionalization and towards person-centred community care. These values include;

- HOPE
- THE POWER OF HUMAN CONNECTION
- SELF-DETERMINATION
- PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY
- EMPOWERMENT
- SELF ADVOCACY

Support at BIG looks different for everyone. For some it’s about making friends and building connections with others that support their recovery. Many of our Community Members are looking to learn about themselves and what they need to get well and stay well. This can happen through workshops, groups or 1-on-1 support with our Peer Workers. For others it may be about getting involved with recreational activities like art groups and excursions and being part of a community. Finding their connection back to life and rediscovering their own hope for a brighter future. This is BIG and this is why it matters.

Your support is very valuable, how little it may seem, it will have a positive ripple effect in our community.

I look forward to another great night to support a local charity.

Raffle prizes are welcome. We had some awesome prizes for raffles at previous event. There will be a silent auction and a Two minute auction again and a best dressed prize.

Any donation of raffle prices, vouchers or gifts are really appreciated.

Life music and entertainment. This year's theme is Country Style Dress up. Wear the best Jilleroo, Jackeroo hat, dancing cowboy boots or whatever you feel comfortable in!

Please arrive 6.30pm, so we can start with the night on time. If you are running late - all good too.

Spread the word, Spread the community spirit.
Much gratitude, Jose and team
