Event description
Enjoy a fun night of Bingo while helping raise much needed funds to support the most vulnerable children in our community at Christmas!

About this Event

Monies raised from our Bingo night will help us fund our Christmas Program, providing Christmas presents to newborn to 18 years of age when entering into emergency care over this period. Imagine a child arriving on your door with their backpack and a present hidden away for them to open in the morning and the joy that child will feel, to enjoy the moment like so many others or the parent who is living in a domestic violence shelter who is too scared to leave to purchase something special for their own child or feels bad for the kids not receiving a present and returns to their violent home life.

A simple Christmas present can bring so much joy and happiness, but also reduce stress and anxiety for those supporting our kids and families who are displaced at Christmas time. Each present is wrapped beautifully with ribbon and a hand made card by a school or child is added to create the special finish. There are 2 toys in each Christmas gift one of a larger value of up to $30 and a lesser value item to ensure the child receives a few options for fun.

In 2019 we supplied 4,703 Christmas presents to kids who entered into emergency care over the Christmas period. We also needed to spend over $20,000 to fill the short fall of presents we didn't have donated to ensure every child who had a request made on their behalf received something special last Christmas.

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Every person who donates a Christmas present (toy) on the night will receive a FREE RAFFLE TICKET to say thank you and YOU could win some great prizes.

Guidelines for the donated toys are as follows:

  • All toys must be NEW
  • Toys are supplied to newborn to 18 years
  • Value of toys can be up to a maximum of $30
  • No weapon or food orientated items
  • Please, no books or clothes for Christmas as the kids already receive these items in their backpacks
  • All toys must be unwrapped to allow our team to carry out a safety check (as per our agreement with agencies including Department for Child Protection)

BYO food and nibbles! Drinks will be available for purchase at the bar.

We thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you there.
