More than fash­ion pa­rade

Li­on­ess Club fundraises to sup­port com­mu­nity groups

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - LIFE -

FASH­ION won’t be the only thing on show on Oc­to­ber 6; so will the gen­eros­ity of the Li­on­ess Club of Caloundra. For more than 30 years the group has been tire­lessly giv­ing back to the com­mu­nity.

Pub­lic­ity of­fi­cer Wendy Jensen said this year’s an­nual fash­ion pa­rade would fundraise for the Metropoli­tan Caloundra Surf Life Sav­ing Club. “We chose them be­cause a lot of of our mem­bers have grand­chil­dren who are in it,” Wendy said.

“We want to give them the money so they can get some equip­ment.”

Wendy said the group does one ma­jor fundraiser a year to help fundraise for groups in the com­mu­nity. The for­mat for this year’s event will be fin­ger food with some jokes and short sto­ries to kick the day off then the fash­ion pa­rade.

“A great pa­rade of fash­ions from Let Loose,” Wendy said.

The Li­on­ess Club of Caloundra has 21 mem­bers with many work­ing to put this event to­gether.

“We are look­ing for­ward to it, the girls have been work­ing on it for a few weeks now, and as it gets closer peo­ple are get­ting ex­cited,” Wendy said.

More than 65 tick­ets have been sold with a ca­pac­ity for 100. The event will be held at CCSA Hall, Nut­ley Street, Caloundra from 11am, and tick­ets can be pre-pur­chased or on the day. For in­for­ma­tion con­tact Lyn Web­ber on 0407 156 682.
