Fundraising dinner for Citizen Advocacy, Sunshine Coast

Citizen Advocacy is a unique approach towards responding to the needs of vulnerable people with disability who live in our community. Citizen Advocacy supports a community to help itself by matching people with an intellectual disability with advocates, resourceful and responsible members of the local community.  Citizen Advocacy is part mentoring, part guidance, part protection and part friendship, and is a great opportunity for those who are experienced and successful in life to assist others who would really benefit from that experience and success. Sunshine Coast coordinator Bob Lee has been with the Citizen Advocacy program since its commencement in 1996. Mr Lee says, "This program is a way for ordinary citizens to protect somebody who needs protection, to speak up for somebody who is silent, and be a friend for someone who has never had a friend".

Clio's Restaurant of Palmwoods Woombye Road, Palmwoods is holding a fundraising dinner on Friday, August 12 from 6.30 pm to help raise funds for this very worthwhile non-profit organisation. Chef Daniel Collard will be serving a sumptuous three course Italian meal for $45.00 per person.  "Chardonnay Sippers", a favourite Sunshine Coast band will be entertaining throughout the evening. Event coordinator Mary-Ann Rose would like to invite Sunshine Coast residents to be part of making a positive difference in the lives of people with intellectual disability. For bookings contact Mary-Ann Rose 5445 9844 or mobile 0414 981 021.
