Be entertained and raise funds
ENJOY a laidback afternoon of entertainment in Dysart tomorrow with all money raised from the afternoon to be donated to flood victims.
The event, which will be held at the Dysart Football Club starting from 3pm, has plenty of entertainment lined up with Freya Wilcox, from Brisbane band Junkyard Paranoia, and Oliver Cubis, from band Firetree, teaming up to play popular cover songs.
Kids will have plenty of excitement with facepainting, jumping castle and a lolly man making an appearance, and there will even be a sumo suit championship.
Grasstree Landscaping owner Jatz Rout organised the fundraiser for areas damaged by floods that have received little publicity and support from other events.
“It’s just such a shame that these areas have been suffering for some time and Brisbane has gained so much attention while others are forgotten and left to pick up the pieces,” Ms Rout said.
“The community has been so generous, it’s absolutely incredible – we have already achieved so much support to make this event something for the area to be proud of.
“In times like these, it’s really important to pull these close-knit communities together and show our support for all of the people that have suffered through this disaster.”
Grasstree Landscaping is urging residents and businesses to get involved.
“It will be a phenomenal opportunity for Dysart to be recognised and for local businesses to show their support, we will take any possible donations to help the flood victims who desperately need it,” she said.
