Join us at the movies next Friday 22nd February for our first fundraiser for the Smiling for Smiddy campaign. So far we have raised $10,000 across Qld and Vic but we have a long way to go to reach our target of $100,000 by Noosa Triathlon.
We need final numbers for the movie night by this Friday 15th February. The more people that come along the more money we will raise for a great cause so bring your brothers, sisters, friends, grannies, local butcher… whoever you can rope into coming!
The movie night will start with finger food at 6pm with the movie start time at 6:45pm. Cost is $25 and we will be watching Silver Linings Playbook – nominated for 8 Oscars.
