Girls Night Out #8 - 10.02.24

Girl's Night Out #8 is well and truly sold out! 

The sale phase of Girls Night Out has wrapped up with another record breaking number of attendees. We are now sharing the fundraising messaging in collaboration with our charity partner, Mossman Support Services.  The cause this year is close to the communities heart which has been reflected in the demand for tickets as well as in support for fundraising efforts so far.

Over $1000 has already been raised via a donated portion of ticket sales to the event but we want to contribute more, read on if you or a business you know (anywhere in Australia) can help.

Overview

Tropical Cyclone Jasper flooded Far North Queensland (FNQ), stole Christmas 2023, and flooded the news headlines for weeks with so many stories of survival, visions of despair and its devastating impacts. This loss has spread throughout our Douglas Shire. There is loss of life, infrastructure, families’ homes and possessions, business and trade and many of our community members are still isolated and in survival mode.

The annual fundraiser event “Girls Night Out” at Harrison’s Restaurant at the Sheraton has acknowledged the immeasurable work and recovery work of Mossman Support Services and has announced it as this year’s collaborative charity for the event.

The event is a sought after ticket and the 100+ community-engaged women who attend wholeheartedly support the fundraising effort. This year we definitely need a “night out” to momentarily escape the realities we are currently facing, to connect with our community and basically have a good time whilst adding much needed funds to the cause.

I am inviting you to join us in supporting the “cent sale”- style fundraiser being run by Mossman Support Services with a product, voucher or credit adding extra fun to the Girls Night Out event. The event is booked for February 10th 2024.

The flood-stricken impact zone of devastation saturated Douglas Shire’s 2500 square kilometres in FNQ. Our Shire is home to two of the world’s natural wonders, the ancient Daintree Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef, and includes the tourist mecca of Port Douglas, rural towns and villages such as Mossman, Daintree Village, Cape Tribulation and Degarra to name a few. The Shire’s 13,000 people has a significant Indigenous population. The region has a rich Aboriginal Kuku Yalanji and Torres Strait Islander heritage, and the local Indigenous community contributes to the cultural diversity of the area.

The scars of Jasper are deep and the recovery effort will take years so your support is much needed and so appreciated on so many levels.
