Fundraising for our drought affected farmers is definitely topical at present, with farmers facing ruin across New South Wales and Queensland in what some are calling the worst drought in living memory.
“It touches home to everyone, as these farmers are the people putting food on our plates. They are doing it tough and the Cooroy community is really rallying to show support for our Aussie farmers,” said Cooroy RSL Operations Manager, Helen Hollingworth.
Cooroy RSL are helping the fundraising efforts by holding a Drought Fundraiser on Saturday 15th September. Fantastic local band, Miss Leading will be playing starting with a few country songs to kick the night off before heading into their usual soulful rock grooves.
It’s a fun night out that raises funds for a good cause. There is no cover charge and there will be raffles and special promotions on the night to raise funds. The chosen charity to support is Drought Angels, which has earnt a reputation for providing personalised, heartfelt and discreet assistance to farmers. Everyone is encouraging to come dressed in their best farmer outfit and there will be a prize on the night for best costume.
You can support this event by booking a table and donating on the night. Any businesses who would like to contribute a prize to be raffled on the night can contact Kerry or Helen at Cooroy RSL on 5447 6131 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cooroy RSL is also a drop off point for non-perishable items for donation to Drought Angels which is being done in conjunction with Raine & Horne Noosa Hinterland.
