Get ready to dance night away at mixer

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

NOT ev­ery­one finds it easy to fit in.

That’s why the So­cial Mix­ers Club is invit­ing the Whit­sun­day com­mu­nity to their Mas­quer­ade Dance at Boom Night­club.

Fea­tur­ing a night of danc­ing, pizza and mock­tails, the evening gives peo­ple the chance to mix and min­gle in a so­cially re­laxed en­vi­ron­ment.

Whit­sun­day PCYC com­mu­nity de­vel­op­ment of­fi­cer Cassie Holeczy said af­ter start­ing the club more than a year ago, they aimed to give peo­ple a so­cial out­let for those that might not have one.

“Some peo­ple go from lit­er­ally a full-time en­vi­ron­ment of so­cial­is­ing with peo­ple their own age and pos­i­tive in­te­gra­tion to not hav­ing any­thing at all,” she said.

“We de­cided to start it with the em­pha­sis on op­por­tu­ni­ties for peo­ple with all dif­fer­ent dis­abil­i­ties... to (open­ing it up to) peo­ple look­ing to so­cialise more.”

Ms Holeczy said they wanted to get as many com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions LILLINGSTONE

in­volved as pos­si­ble with Quota jump­ing on board and Boom of­fer­ing their night­club for free for the event.

“We hope to one day not just have dances and par­ties but also things like sport­ing events and colour runs,” she said. “We try to have a dif­fer­ent theme with ev­ery event we have.

“The dance is about so­cial­is­ing, meet­ing peo­ple and chat­ting and en­joy­ing some free din­ner.

“We don’t want to la­bel it to any type of per­son, it’s open to ev­ery­body.”
