Raising hope for flood families
WHAT do you get when you mix Miss Universe Australia Jesinta Campbell, comedian Ian Wright, and Gold Coast musician Matt Barker?
An evening of fashion, laughter and entertainment, and it’s happening at Palm Beach fashion boutique Dot Wears A Dress tomorrow evening from 6pm and all for a good cause.
Sharon Fletcher and Mandy Bell from the Palm Beach store said this was the least they could do to help out the victims of flood ravaged Queensland.
“We’ve had a great response for local businesses who have wanted to help out by donating money and gifts, and it shows how everyone in our area is chipping in,” Ms Bell said.
“We are going to be donating a percentage of the money raised on the night to a family that was in a flood-affected area.
“The guests on the evening will determine how they would like their fundraising efforts between the Queensland Premier’s Flood Appeal and the family affected by the tragedy.
“Hopefully we can present the family with a nice healthy cheque that will give them a ray of hope in their sad and unfortunate situation.”
The night will also involve a silent auction.
“You go around to the tables with different prizes and write your name and your bid down,” Ms Fletcher said.
“It’s going to be fun.
“It’s like a silent war between guests.”
Ms Fletcher said the night would have something for everyone.
“We are using the store for the basis of a good fundraising event,” she said.
“And it’s not just about fashion, there will plenty on offer for males and children.
“It should be a really fun night and I expect quite a few people will turn up.”
All the clothing items in store will be up for sale on the night.
The event will run from 6pm at the store located on 1156 Gold Coast Highway with entry $5.
