Baldies bring Bullarama for wor­thy cause

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

“THESE are real peo­ple, rid­ing real bulls, rais­ing money for a real bat­tle,” sui­cide aware­ness cam­paigner Jack Lumby said about A Mile in Their Shoes’ first Bullarama.

In as­so­ci­a­tion with the Proser­pine Rodeo As­so­ci­a­tion and the Cen­tral Rodeo Cowboys As­so­ci­a­tion, the event which will be held at the Reef Gate­way Ho­tel on July 4 and will raise money and aware­ness for those suf­fer­ing from de­pres­sion in the Whit­sun­day com­mu­nity.

"We are work­ing with the Grapevine Group in Mackay to de­liver the Life­line Safe Talk pro­gram of sui­cide aware­ness into our com­mu­nity. We wish to have our own lo­cal train­ers to de­liver the pro­gram and monies raised will help us achieve this. At present the Bald Ea­gles fund the ex­penses to bring fa­cil­i­ta­tors into our town. Mates look­ing af­ter Mates as our motto states," Mr Lumby said. “Come along and en­joy a night of ex­cite­ment and fun and watch these coura­geous cowboys ride these huge Brahman Bulls.

“It takes lots of guts to ride these beasts, sim­i­lar to the guts nec­es­sary to take on de­pres­sion."

Those in­ter­ested in nomi- nat­ing in the Bullarama should phone 4927 1916 for the chance to win cash from $300 to $2000.

Tick­ets will be avail­able at the gate and there are all-in­clu­sive cor­po­rate boxes for eight peo­ple for just $1000. For more in­for­ma­tion call Jack Lumby on 0417 628 939.

YEE HA: A Bullarama will be held at the Reef Gate­way Ho­tel on Satur­day, July 4.
