FOR the second consecutive year Cystic Fibrosis (CF) will hold their Christmas In July event in the Goulburn Valley. The annual charity dinner and auction will be held at the Quality Hotel Parklake on Saturday July 4, with all proceeds going to assist in finding a cure for CF through Cystic Fibrosis Australia.
Event Organisers [sisters] Tracey Botterill, Lyn Gilchrist and Vanessa Crockett said, “The event is our biggest annual fundraiser for CF.
“Last year we held the event at Monichino Wines and it was such a successful evening that we decided to do it again, only on a slightly bigger scale this year.
“We received several emails after last year’s event from people saying what a great night they had, and offering their support if we were to hold the event again.
“We are now urging the people of Shepparton and surrounds to get involved and come along to this year’s event. We’ll have a number of raffles on the night, lucky door prizes and an auction, and anyone who books a table of 8 or more people will receive one ticket free of charge.
“There’ll also be great food and wonderful entertainment by Damien Mullin, (highly-regarded Elvis impersonator) as ‘Elvis Forever’; supported by local band Skuzz, and our MC for the night – former North Melbourne Football Club Premiership Player, Peter Chisnall.
The Cystic Fibrosis Christmas In July charity dinner and auction will be held at the Quality Hotel Parklake, 481 Wyndham Street, Shepparton from 7pm to 12pm on Saturday, July 4. Tickets cost $149 per person and are inclusive of the live floor show, three course meal, beer, wine and soft drink. Bookings can be made by phoning Vanessa Crockett on 0438 522 228 or Tracey Botterill on 0400 204 010 or via email to Vanessa [email protected] or Tracey [email protected]
