2016 Annual Xmas Gala Fundraising Ball
1st Accelerated Program Primary School Children in La Trobe Gippsland
The Annual Gippsland Christmas Gala Ball is raising funds for our Primary School kids. Creating an Accelerated Learning Facility Hub in our region for all Primary School Kids who have special learning needs including the Talented & Gifted. Albert Street Primary School is leading the way with this great initiative running the accelerated programs not just for their school but inviting all other primary schools kids in the region to attend externally for weekend and after school special accelerated programs activities.
The Gala Ball Funds will provide extra resources for this great initiative, for specialist teachers, accelerated after school program resources for Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics, bringing facilities for the Gifted & Talented from Melbourne to our Gippsland region, introducing new advanced Health, Well Being Techniques & Mindfulness Curriculum for special need kids plus introducing scholarships for our childrens achievements.
The Gala Ball is for all Business’s families, parents, and community members to give back to our children, whilst enjoying a great fun Formal Evening with a seated 3 Course Dinner, coffee & teas, Live Music Band and Guest Speakers for our region. Attire is Formal dress; long gowns for the ladies and black ties for the men are to be worn to celebrate Xmas in style (As it is a fundraiser, if long dresses and black ties are not worn - in fun, a gold coin fine will be need to be given at the door.) To celebrate the joy of Christmas upon arriving you will be given a glass of sparkling and some nibbles to mingle (please note to keep the ticket price down the $120 does not include beverages they will need to be purchased separately at the bar by yourself) Then move into the Gala Ball Room for a great night where Christmas celebrations will begin. We have three terrific guest speakers covering “ Business - What does Gippsland La Trobe look like in 10-15 year’s time – what careers are going to be here for our kids. “ .. “ Families - Social and economic issues and the impact on our kids today “ … Parents – Recognising when your child may need Talented and Gifted Children.
Our target for the Gippsland Xmas Gala Fundaraiser Ball night is 200 tickets will raise approx. $10,000, which is a great start towards the $100,000 target for this facility.
If 250 business’s reached out and sponsored $250 each then we would have raised $75,000 3/4 of our target. If 750 Families and Friends all sponsored at least $50 each we would hit our target of 100k
Overall Target $100,000 - Accelerating our children is everyone's business
