Char­ity guests blame­less

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

ON the even­ing of June 16, Cootharinga North Queens­land held its char­ity event, Night Lights by the Wa­ter, at the Mar­itime Mu­seum Park to raise funds to ad­dress the crit­i­cal lack of ac­ces­si­ble hous­ing for peo­ple with dis­abil­ity in North Queens­land.

We were pleased to sup­port an­other not- for- profit or­gan­i­sa­tion and a Townsville trea­sure by hold­ing our char­ity event at the Mar­itime Mu­seum Park.

Af­ter read­ing John An­der­sen’s ar­ti­cle “A Bit On The Noise” ( Townsville Bulletin 27/ 6/ 17) we would like to make it clear that the “50 noisy guests that re­mained in the park area at 11pm af­ter the ball fin­ished’’ ref­er­enced near the end of the ar­ti­cle were not guests from Cootharinga’s char­ity event.

Our event, Night Lights by the Wa­ter, wrapped up at 11pm with guests head­ing home, and event or­gan­is­ers and vol­un­teers there un­til 12am clean­ing up the park and mak­ing sure ev­ery­thing was spot­less. We would like to thank all those that were in­volved in mak­ing the event pos­si­ble.

MORGANNE KOPITTKE, Cootharinga North Queens­land.
