As always the Network is excited to be supporting a good cause.
This months cause is Spina-Bifida,
It is worth noting this event is not created and run by the YFN, rather some of the organisers of this event are members of the network, and as such - the network is supporting them in their endeavors as much as possible.
This will be a typical network style event - no sit-down stuffy dinners here people.
Just a fun, fancy free cocktail style event with live band, DJ and other great entertainment.
If you attend one event this year - make it this one. Its worth it
A message from Pieter Haverhoek appears below:
This is a night we are putting together, as a fundraiser for Jake Jurecky to achieve some life goals before his Spina bifida puts him in a wheelchair for the rest of his life.
Jake is 16 and has recently been advised by Dr's he won't be able to walk within 2-5 years.
One of Jakes major goals is to walk the Kokoda track next year.
I will be walking the track with Jake at my own cost. We are raising the money for Jake to go along with appropriate medical support.
Please consider buying a ticket to join us. The evening will be catered by Beyond India and includes all drinks plus live entertainment from a band and DJ, along with a few surprises on the night.
We are hoping to attract 400 guests.
The organising committee (me included) have donated or fundraised for the entire cost of the event, to ensure that your ticket price will 100% go to Jake.
As such you could consider making a donation of money or goods / services.
We are seeking corporate sponsors as well. Some specific items left to fundraise for include 22 cartons wine and 30 cartons of beer, along with food for a grazing platter.
So far we have raised over $10k in donations to create the event.
This includes major donations from Marc Belej Drew Edwards via Penfolds wines, Nick Herraman, The Freemasons and Lodge Eudunda Rob Turnbull
We are also seeking auction items to be donated.
We are incredibly grateful of any support.
Thanks in advance
