Masquerade Ball to raises funds for RFDS
Local residents in Karratha have been urged to support a major fundraising event to raise much-needed funds for the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS).
The annual charity Ball for the RFDS will be held on September 1, 2012 from 7.30pm at the Tambrey Sunset Room.
Crawford Realty Karratha has become a platinum sponsor of the event for the first time and is encouraging as many local residents to attend the fund raising event as possible.
According to Mark Pages-Oliver, General Manager of Crawford Realty Karratha, the event will also include a charity auction on the night.
“This year’s theme will be a Masquerade Ball and overall we hope that the event will raise more than $20,000 for the RFDS,” said Mark.
“Early bird tickets for the Masquerade Ball cost only $199, which includes a three course meal with beer, wine and soft drinks provided.
“This is a wonderful way for local residents both to enjoy themselves and well as support the wonderful work of the RFDS.
“Every year, the RFDS is involved in providing urgent medical assistance to people in our community which in many cases can be a matter of life and death.
“Crawford Realty decided to become major sponsors of the annual ball for the RFDS because of our strong support for local community projects and groups.
“Local community groups, which we currently give assistance to include SAFE, who finds homes for unwanted pets, and The Sprockets youth BMX Club.
“In addition, we also hold fundraising events such as a prostate cancer barbeque and a Jeans for genes day,” he said.
A limited number of tickets for the Ball are still available, and can be obtained from Crawford Realty Karratha on 9143 1599.
