How good does it feel when you help out in your local community??
Every good deed goes along way and encourages others to do more.
Help us raise awareness and funds for domestic violence victims.
As some of you may know as well as Rhonda's collection www.rhondascollectionsonline.com I also own a bricks and mortar store in Moonah Tasmania called Strutt Design Studio. www.struttstudio.com.au Annually we hold an in store fundraiser to raise much needed funds for local charities and organisations.
This year our focus is domestic violence. This is a topic that is repeatedly mentioned on news programs and really touches our hearts. Unfortunately many families are affected by this, not only in Tasmania but Australia wide. We have joined forces with the Moonah Rotary Club to help them in their efforts to support local domestic violence organisations.
Once a person is affected by domestic violence, in most cases they are forced to leave their home and belongings behind. Women, children and men from all walks of life can be victims. Rotary clubs work with organisations which offer support programs, housing , and necessities like clothing to help victims get back on their feet. Some local organisations and support groups include:
Our fundraiser night will be held at Strutt (71a Main road Moonah) on the 9th June at 6.30 PM.
Listed below is what to expect on the night.
On arrival you will be greeted by one of Strutt's friendly staff members who will offer you your first free drink (any others will incur a gold coin donation), then they will offer you a goodie bag full of special coupons and deals from local businesses.
A guest speaker from the Moonah Rotary Club will inform you on where your money will be going, and give you a little more information about how they assist domestic violence programs.
There will be great store specials on our fashion and accessories with 10% off all sales being donated.
You can't have a fundraiser without a raffle! We have put together a fantastic raffle prize which is valued at $149.95! Tickets are $2 each or 3 for $5. The winner will be announced that night. (Tickets can be purchased before the event at Strutt or through Moonah Rotary). All raffle money will be donated.
We have arranged 3 gorgeous ladies (who are not professional models) to do an informal fashion parade to showcase the latest fashion trends. Strutt's fashion comprises of casual, cocktail evening and bridal. A little from all these areas will be showcased.
I will have a small display of Rhonda's Collections to show my new winter arrivals. I have also hand made some fantastic dressing gowns which are exclusive to Rhonda's Collection! I will be taking party bookings on the night. www.facebook.com/RhondasCollection/?fref=ts
