Wine and cheese night for Fauna Res­cue Whit­sun­days

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

A HOST of prizes will be up for grabs at a special event to learn about our re­gion’s wildlife.

Fauna Res­cue Whit­sun­days is hold­ing a wine and cheese fundraiser on Sun­day, Septem­ber 23, at the Breeze Bar, Air­lie Beach, and everyone’s in­vited.

The event will act as a fundraiser and also a mem­ber­ship drive for the not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion, which sees vol­un­teers res­cu­ing and re­ha­bil­i­tat­ing wildlife through­out the Whit­sun­days and beyond, from Bowen in the north of the re­gion, to Sa­rina just south of Mackay, and west to Mo­ran­bah.

“Everyone is in­vited to come along and join us in this in­for­mal gath­er­ing to cel­e­brate and sup­port Fauna Res­cue Whit­sun­days,” Fauna Res­cue Whit­sun­days vol­un­teer Lola Mudie said.

“You can meet some of our mem­bers and mas­cots and learn about the work we do and the wildlife we res­cue.”

Tick­ets cost $20 for adults and chil­dren’s ad­mis­sion is free, with all pro­ceeds go­ing di­rectly to Fauna Res­cue Whit­sun­days. There is a special fam­ily rate of $30 and en­try for Fauna Res­cue Whit­sun­days mem­bers is $10.

Tick­ets in­clude two wine or light beer vouch­ers, free soft drinks for chil­dren, cheese, nib­blies and a lucky door prize. A se­lec­tion of wine, beers, spir­its and re­fresh­ments will also be avail­able over the bar.

There will also be face paint­ing and Fauna Res­cue Whit­sun­days pens avail­able for a gold coin do­na­tion, as well as raf­fles and an auc­tion, with prizes do­nated by Whit­sun­day Croc­o­dile
